Five For...Saturday?

This week has been cray cray! Like seriously, cray cray. Here's how my week went down.

Monday: Teacher workday
Tuesday: Veteran's Day --> No School
Wednesday: A normal school day
Thursday: "Snow" day --> No School 
Friday: A normal school day

Needless to say, my whole routine is all thrown off. 

BUT...

I've managed to get it together (a little bit) for my five for Friday. Or really Saturday. Don't worry, I'm going to take your through my week right now!



Monday: Teacher work day. Is it just me or are these the least productive days ever? For some reason I always struggle to get motivated on these days. I planned my week, organized my classroom, watched a lot of Top Model and then ran some errands for our upcoming PYP unit. Overall fairly successful.

I was also able to get in a run (the only one this week). And it was the longest run that I've had in a long time! Progress!


As you can see I'm a little behind this week on my miles. How are you doing?
  

Tuesday: Appointments, appointments and more appointments. Seriously, so many appointments. I had to take all 3 of my pets to the vet, my husband to the doctor, and then had an appointment for myself. Phew. Grateful for the time to get them all done!

Thank you Veteran's! You help keep my family healthy and safe in more ways than one this year!


Wednesday: We spent all day Wednesday learning about Veteran's day. Our current PYP unit is on celebrations and holidays around the world. Our planner focuses on winter holidays like Diwali, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, etc. I thought it was also important to talk about Veteran's day and why people celebrate it, especially since it results in a day off from school.



We made vocabulary flip books, acrostic poems, mystery pictures, and so much more. Integration at it's finest! 


Thursday: Oh snow day. We had some pretty chilly temperatures on Thursday with snow and freezing rain in the forecast.  I woke up at 5am to a text saying 2 hour delay and then a text at 7am saying school was canceled. And thank goodness because look at all the snow. We really dodged a bullet there.



I laughed way too hard at this. So true. But the unexpected day off was much appreciated!


Friday: One of my students brought me a present today, well a snack really. She decorated a paper bag and inside place this note along with an orange and a snickers. 


The note says:
Have a good snack!

Taste my snack and

1) Circle if it is good or bad. 
Yes     No 

2) If it is yummy or yucky circle it. 
Yum! or Yuck!

3) The heart means it's good and the triangle means it's bad.
(I don't know how to get the shapes on here)


And now we are in Eugene for my husbands birthday. I also set up a Price is Right game for him! It turned out so much better than I expected. And he loved it!


Well now I am off to log some more miles for my running challenge. Thank goodness our hotel has a gym!

  3. Your snow day pics cracked me up. Last year we had 12 snow days. Several of the "snow days" looked like your pictures. Too funny. By the way I am your newest follower! I found you on the link up in Doodle Bugs Teaching!
