Hello! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday! It is a gorgeous day outside and I'm thinking I might take the dog for a walk this evening. It has been seasonably cool and sunny all day. Love the early fall!
So here is my Currently!
Listening- I usually don't have any background noise on when I'm on the computer (helps me think)
Loving- I worked on parent conferences this morning then did a number on the house. My husband is out of town and will be back tomorrow and I want to just have the time to spend with him before the work week and not worry about a messy house! :)
Thinking- we have a crazy week ahead. Tuesday night, we have a curriculum night for the parents and then I start conferences on Monday. I have them 3 days this week and then 4 days next week and so far, a little more than half of my parents have signed up. I like conferences but also dread them...
Wanting- fall is my favorite season and now that we are living in NC, the trees don't change as fast. I love their beautiful colors and can't wait for them to show their glory!
Needing- my poor kitty ate the last of her food this morning, we feed her twice a day..it's almost time for her dinner, so I better run to the store.
Trick- I have started using a lot of Whole Brain Teaching techniques in my class this year and I love the smiley/frowney game. For each good thing I see the class doing, ex. staying on task, I give them a smiley point. If I see them not following directions or following our CHAMPS, I put a tally on the frowney side. I set my timer for 20 minutes and when it goes off, if they have more smileys, we do a quick brain break on gonoodle. I love it and it reminds me to get in those breaks throughout the day! There has only been 1 time so far we had to skip the break because we had more frowneys.
Ok folks, that's all for now...I will be doing a post on how I organize my data binder soon..so stay tuned for that! Have a great weekend!
