I hope you have a great weekend plan with your idea of fun…mine right now includes a lot of relaxing. Hee hee!
I'm headed out later to watch my little kiddos play basketball. Several of the boys and girls in my class are playing "little league" and have been wanting me to come watch them. I can't wait! Reminds me of when my own kids were just little ones running around on the basketball court.
But first I thought I'd pop in with some pictures from my week, so here goes…

First, I was finally brave enough to try writing on our table with dry-erase markers. I have seen this all over, but was always to afraid to try it.
What if it didn't come off well and I ruined the table?
I tested a small area first because I'm cautious that way...
It made subtraction with regrouping so much more exciting and I was the "best teacher ever." Ha!
Afterwards, a Clorox wipe and good as new!
You should try it (if you haven't already) and then you can be the "best teacher ever" too.
Math problem types…I posted this last week, but didn't have the shading. Here's the problem types by grade level:
K - Green
1st - Orange
2nd - Blue
This definitely shows how much ground work is laid in the K-1 classroom. Thank you K-1 teachers (and I really love teaching 2nd)!
I am a dark chocolate kind of girl. I have a piece (or two) after lunch every day. I came upon this wrapper twice this week and it gave me a chuckle.
And finally, the reason that I don't post on Friday evenings.
I am supposed to, you know. That is the deal during the school year. Kristi posts on Mondays. I post on
The green arrow is pointing to my son.
He is a freshman. Last night was the first time he got to suit up for varsity. He looked so short (even though he has outgrown me and nearly his dad too)! I love cheering on my kids…and I'm really glad they love to play basketball. It is my favorite sport.
My daughter has two more weeks playing in middle school, which means I have two more weeks coaching. I love to do it, but I am definitely ready to have more time on my hands.
Speaking of basketball…Rock Chalk, Jayhawk! KU plays K-State today. I told my littles that I'd wear purple on Monday if we lost…hope the Jayhawks don't let me down! ;-)
