Weekly Recap - The Bad and the Good


Week number 4 is in the books.  Here's a quick recap of my week.

Don't hate me, but my week was okay.  There isn't anything bad that necessarily happened at school (or I blocked it out if it did happen).  

The bad thing that did happen was very sad. I made myself a Chai Latte with my Keurig to take to school.  Halfway to school, I realized I didn't have my cup with me.  This in itself was sad.  The awful part was when I got home, I couldn't find my cup on the counter.  It must have flown off the roof of my car on the drive to school or was accidentally thrown out by me taking the garbage out in the morning.  I have no idea what happened to it.  

I know - Boohoo. Right? 😭 You would be devastated too if it was your favorite cup!

A moment of mourning please!  This was the best mug (in my favorite color), because I could drop it repeatedly (which my butterfingers tend to do) and it wouldn't even spill!  The Chai Latte was like fall in a mug. Oh well, new ones are on order - thanks Amazon Prime!


1.  Fabulous Coworkers - This week I got a cupcake in my mailbox and had wonderful coworkers make copies for me and get materials for an activity. I love how well our team works together!  (Side note - This also explains the dream I had where my entire team asked to move to Kindergarten together.  At least we stayed together! Thankfully, this was only a dream!)


2.  Open House - I had the biggest attendance at Open House this week - 6 families.  This is HUGE for me.  Last year, I only had 1 family.  The parents were very supportive.  One mom made me so happy.  She told me that her son has developed a love of reading since being in my classroom!


3.  Morning Reading Tubs and Afternoon Math Tubs - This is a new routine for me.  I am pleased at how well these are going.  They are fun but educational!


Race the Fidget Spinner - Finally, a good use for them!


Place Value Task Cards - I love these leveled task cards.  Students can differentiate their own work.  They choose the level that is appropriate for them.
