9:00-9:30 Students arrive and unpack, stuff folders, sharpen pencils, work on unfinished work or read quietly. After the 9:20 announcements we have Morning Meeting. During morning meeting we discuss our Life Skill of the Month and our Habit of the Week.

3:50-4:10 Our parent pick up leave at 3:50pm and most days my students dance to Go Noodle for the remainder of the day. Do you know about it? If you don't check it out, it has tons of brain breaks and some can be used as indoor recess. They also have a section on deep breathing and yoga, my students who have difficulties with anxiety benefit greatly from those exercises.

Unfortunately the literature units are going to have to wait. I never found time to go back and update them. I'll add them to my list for the summer. I uploaded a photo of one that I've redone. I would love feedback.

Here it goes:
Yesterday was pretty busy, had to wake up early for the 2nd insurance adjuster to come out and look at the damage in our kitchen. February 21st we had a frozen pipe burst and 5 weeks later... we still have no check from our insurance adjuster and a big hole in our kitchen. But that nightmare would be a blog post within itself. Then the hubby and I went to see Get Hard with Kevin Hart and Will Farrell. After that, we celebrated our nieces 4th birthday at the Children's Museum. In a year she'll be registering for kindergarten at MY school and I'm totally excited to have her there with me! So today, I rest. I was suppose to meet up with some friends but I may have to take a rain check. I just want to lay around in bed on my heating pad and slip in and out of consciousness.

Last year this time I held a Snow Day Giveaway. Since we got about 8-10 inches in Richmond this time I thought I'd celebrate! I'm giving away two zip top utility totes which are the perfect teacher bags. They won't be personalized but it's a great bag nonetheless. If you decide to make a purchase the monthly special can be seen to the right. Spend $35 and get a purse half off. This Mini Diamond District Purse in the Pebble Pink is on my list this month, can't wait to buy this!
