Five for Friday: Snow Day Edition

It's time for....
I swear that I would never post anymore if it wasn't for Linky parties.    As always, thanks to Doodle Bugs Teaching for hosting!

It also helps when you have a...

Jealous?  If you are on the East Coast, then you are probably off from school too.  My little one has been up since 6 and was outside sledding by 8:00.  Fortunately our neighbors have a steep driveway, so she and her friend are having a blast.  There is about an inch of snow, and now there is some sleet coming down. So, I am inside watching reruns of Beverly Hills 90210 creating awesome lessons for school next week.  Later on my daughter and I may do some crafting or science.  I love snow days!

Grades are done!  Grades are done!  Grades are done!  Our new learning management system has many quirks that we are still trying to figure out, so getting everything entered and finalized was a huge accomplishment.  Second quarter is over, and now we are officially halfway through the year.  

Okay, so this was two weeks ago, but I never got the chance to post from the Carolina Bloggers Meet-up.

I had a great time meeting some fellow bloggers!  I didn't get to talk to everyone as much as I would have liked, but I met some really great people.  Some are very dedicated bloggers, some are intermittent like me.  It was interesting to hear what other teachers across the area are experiencing in education.  Now I have some great new blogs to follow too!
New to teach this quarter: Fractions!  I love teaching fractions, and my students love learning about them because I do a lot of lessons involving food:  fraction cake to introduce the whole, conversation hearts to represent fractions of a group, chewy cookies cut and eaten to represent mixed numbers.  The lessons are always memorable, and my hope is that the content is just as memorable!

My latest obsession...
I watched the first few episodes of this show when it first started, and I was very intrigued.  At that time we had a free trial of premium channels, but we didn't keep it after that.  Now I have downloaded the app for Showtime catching up on the first two seasons during the 30-day free trial.  I am having trouble trying to find time to watch it, but I'm hoping to have some extra time this weekend.  It really is an interesting show, the way that it is told from several viewpoints.  Plus I still have a crush on Joshua Jackson (I heart Pacey!).  Yes, I'm a geek.

Stay warm, friends!

I'm jealous you are finished with 2nd quarter! I still have quarterly assessments to grade and report cards to complete. Now is the time when I wish I was still in a testing grade to be done with grades. Enjoy the snow day! I will have to check out the series on Show Time. It's very challenging to find time to watch shows like that with a 4 year old always around. :))
