Taxes? 'Nuff said!
Stickers? Okay, I've never been consistent with stickers but this year, my class actually asks for them. So, I found a beautiful red box and put some cute ribbon on it and moved it to an area that THEY could access and get their own when deserved. If left up to me, I'd never actually pass them out. What's hot in my class? Googly eyed stickers like this:
Because of their love of them, I instituted a little challenge each day, The "row" that packs-up the quietest wins a sticker. I've been doing this for two months now and you'd think I'm handing out tubs of Lucky Charms or ice cream cones! If you came into my room at 2:20 each day, what would you hear? NOTHING...for ten whole minutes!
Now I admit I do like me some chitter chatter when unpacking in the morning. It's a great time for them to interact, get to know each other and foster a sense of community. But by the end of the day, well, I need it to be quiet so we all do what we need to do...
I can't process why they're so set on winning a sticker but boy, they are so focused on that prize. So, I am trying to kick it up a notch with the coolest, smelliest, glitter-filled stickers I can find. Larger stickers truly seem to tickle their fancy! Hey, whatever floats your boat, kids!
Downton Abbey is simply a fantastic show and if you've never watched it, I suggest you start at Season 1 and binge watch on your next snow day. Amazing! Here's some fun for you...what's wrong with this famous DA Publicity shot? Answer at end of post IF you can't figure it out!
I love The Good Wife just as much but it's been MIA for so long and doesn't come back until March 1. Can I say how much I hate this newish strategy of shows taking long winter breaks? Stupid. Annoying.
I'm committed to using more of the recipes I find on Pinterest...not just Pinning and forgetting about them. I found this recipe on Pinterest and used it for for both pork and chicken. My kids loved it. Easy. Fast. The chicken was delicious. Pork was okay. (And I love pork!)
Okay, in the period piece DA photo above, there's a WATER BOTTLE in the picture. When this happened, it was WATERGATE all over again. Who did it? Why? LOL! Love the way the cast responded.
They linked up this pic to WaterAid, an organization that helps provide access to clean water all over the world. Cool, huh?
