My Weekly Favorites

It is good for me to think of the good parts of my week. This week I am going to do a school version and a home version.

My School Favorite Five:
1. When grading math papers Friday afternoon I saw that two of my students who seem to struggle in many areas academically had written all the numbers to 100, and completed an addition page with no errors. And they did this independently! I ran around after school showing all the teachers that had not yet gone home.
2. Our October quilt that I bought off TPT from Reagan.
3. Being consistent with my expectations for whole class and independent work really paid off. When I speak my expectations outloud (nicely and politely), they can live up to them, and we all really have a better time together.
4. Some of my kids that just didn't understand what "blending the sounds together" meant started to get it on Friday morning. So, more repetition and we should really get it!
5. Student birthday party Friday afternoon with homemade cupcakes.

My Home Favorite Five:
1. Conference with my 7th graders' teachers. He is doing well academically and socially. Love it.
2. Left school early on Tuesday to go to my 7th grader's soccer game. They lost, but did well.
3. I got to watch Grey's Anatomy when it was broadcast on Thursday night.
4. Wearing slippers, boots, and flannel pants. It got chilly this week.
5. Grandparents that support our family with time/drivers and prayers.

This picture has nothing to do with anything I wrote. My 4th grader loves Lego. He created this in April. I just wanted to have a cool picture to go along with this post.

Pin It!
