A Peek at My Week *1.26.14*

I am linking up with Jennifer from Mrs. Laffin's Laughings this evening for a Peek at My Week. I love this linky and didn't want to miss it, but is not going to be very long or school-centered. 

Tomorrow night I will teach my very first college course {insert deep breaths here}. It will basically just be going over the syllabus, introductions, discussion of assignments, etc., but my excitement has changed to nervousness today. I'll be fine when I get there and hopefully my kiddos will keep my mind off of it during the day, but I'm sure I won't be getting much sleep tonight!! 

As for school...

We will begin our poetry unit this week. 

I introduced Kidblog to my kiddos on Friday and they are SO EXCITED about it! So we will be blogging this week. I have heard really great things about this site and I'll be sure to post more as I use it. If you haven't seen it/heard of it yet, you can check it out {here}. 

Kiddos will be working on 2-digit by 1-digit division this week *YIKES*! 

And finally, I have mixed feelings about Thursday. It is the 4th grade team's turn for BAS testing which means we have substitutes in our classrooms while we sit in the hallway to test. For those of you that have been reading, you know how much I dislike being out of school - sitting outside of my door has both pro's and con's. I don't have to worry about behavior so much because the kids know that I will be poking my head in to call students out from time-to-time so they are on their toes. But by poking my head in and out, I am able to observe things not being done my way. I will stop complaining and be thankful that my district gives us subs for this testing and that I don't have to fit it into my day somewhere. 

Have a great week, friends! Thanks for reading!
