Survived my first week back!

On Monday, I went back to school for a professional development.  Our kids came back on Tuesday. Four day weeks always seem long. It's always so hard to get back in the swing of things.. I was ready to go back though.  I NEED a routine. That's the way my body functions!!

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for a linky party. You can click on the pic to join in!
1-Yesterday, I reached 100 followers. Wow!!!! Thanks so much for visiting me. :)
2-We had 30 extra minutes before going to computer rotation. So we clicked on pinterest to check out a baby penguin video. I saw this measuring activity posted. So we had to drag out rulers and yarn and try it out!
3-Saw this on pinterest too! The kids wanted to make it him since he's so cute.  We will write about this little dude on Monday...Don't you just love impromptu goodies!!
4-Found this on Teacher pay teacher. The first day back from holiday break, students chose one personal resolution to write about.
5-After writing personal resolutions, we made a class resolution. We discussed the importance of starting over new and keeping a promise. Each child signed it. We will see how long it last. They are pretty smart so I think it will last a while..At least until the Valentine's Day party..AKA worst day of the year!!!

I hope you all day a great week back! I'm sure we will all sleep well this weekend!


  1. HI! I love your dot background, the colors are so great! I love your idea of the class resolution. We did lots of goal setting the first couple of days back, but I never thought about making a class goal! Great idea!

  2. I love the wall penguin measurements. I'm sure my kids would love comparing their heights to different penguins! Thanks for sharing :)
