Wow what a week already!

I am the winner of Literacy and Laughter's awesome giveaway and I'm super excited! 
I get the a personalized copy of Square Cat and a $15 gift certificate to Lettering Delights! 

If you haven't already checked out this blog you should! She has wonderful creative ideas!

On another note I feel like I have graduated to a certain level in my teaching. I only have to be observed formally one time this year! (Yeah!) I will have two informal observations and one formal observation. Before I had two formal observations and several informal observations. Now I don't really mind being observed but it does give me a lot of anxiety before the lesson and waiting after to hear the results. My BF thinks I'm very silly because he says I worry way too much and then get back great results which I then over analyzed and critique. But isn't that just what teachers do? We are always trying to strive to be the best at what we do!

Tomorrow we have our character parade! I'm dressing up as a pirate arggh! I will have to take plenty of pictures of my cuties all dressed up! I wish I could share with you but you'll have to settle for pictures of my team and I. We also are having our fall centers tomorrow. My room mom put together two awesome crafts, a cookie decoration station, and pumpkin observations. We have a lot awesome volunteers helping out so hopefully I'll get to wander around and snap pictures of each group. 

After our fun day on tomorrow I only have to teach on Thursday. I get Friday off because of report cards and report card conferences next week! I couldn't be more excited to have this day off so I can get my house ready for guests this weekend (it's Homecoming weekend and a ton of girlfriends and college friends are coming in town) and for our Halloween party on Monday night! 


  1. I have my formal observation on Thursday and I am dreading it. I would so much rather them just come in my classroom informally to observe me instead.

  2. Hey best of luck on your observation, conferences, and Halloween...I am getting stressed just typing it. I am sure you don't need good luck! :)
    Rock it out!

  3. Thanks so much ladies! My observation was amazing! :) I'm so blessed to have such wonderful students!
