I swiped this meme off a friend’s blog. I kind of like it. I’m kind of test-driving it for my classroom — I think I could modify it a little and come up with a pretty decent writing prompt for student journals.
Outside my window… bright sunshine.
I am thinking… it’s maybe not such a bad thing that my bees will be introducing me to my new boss. I was delivering honey to some colleagues this morning and had hoped to meet the new principal while I was in the office, but he was out, so I just left a jar on his desk. The girls usually make a better first impression than I do anyway, so I’m perfectly content to let them make my introduction for me. 🙂
From the classroom*… swapping fun ideas with people on Craftster, where I posted pictures of my latest project for school.
I am thankful for… my animals.
From the kitchen… nothing yet. I need to empty the dishwasher and go to the grocery store.
I am wearing… jeans, Crocs, and a Powder Puff football T-shirt.
I am reading… Lunch Poems by Frank O’Hara.
I am hoping… to get some of my first-week-of-school materials ready today.
I am creating… educational games for my students.
I am praying… with gratitude for this beautiful summer day.
Around the house… the sound of my finch singing his squeaky songs and the silence of my cat sneaking into the living room to play on the chair he isn’t supposed to touch.
One of my favorite things… pina colada snow cones.
A few plans for the rest of the week… a solitary jog to collect my thoughts, a Reading Room shift, and a better litterbox for Walter. (I guess the litterbox is really more for my benefit than Walter’s. He doesn’t mind the one he has; it’s just a hassle to clean, and I think there are probably better-designed models available.)
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
These are my subject-verb agreement dominoes. They were more trouble to make than I thought they would be, but I think they turned out well. Hopefully the kids will like them.
* The original meme called this “learning rooms,” which I think has something to do with homeschooling, but since I’m a teacher, I just changed it to “classroom.” Hardly a day goes by that I’m not collecting some scrap of information or creating some tool to use in my classroom, so I might as well mention it, yes?
