Teachers Pay Teachers

I MADE MY VERY FIRST PRODUCT FOR TEACHERS PAY TEACHERS!  I am quite pleased by it!  Check it out! It's an owl themed Daily 5 poster set.  I plan on doing the definitions soon.

PROUD of Me!

I'm not going to lie; I am so proud of me right now! I changed the look to my blog. I know that might not be a big deal to some people, but for me, it's a big deal! With a lot of Photoshop tantrums and screaming at my computer, I made my "title." I am very pleased with it. It only took me four and a half hours to make, that's all. I added a bunch of stuff to my blog as well. Hopefully, I'll get people to look at it more when I add stuff to my TpT store. That site is amazing! Bed now, I'm exhausted!

I just recently found this wonderful woman on Teachers pay Teachers.  She has the best clip art, frames, alphabets, etc.  Check her out!

Oh The Places You'll Go

It's graduation time and this one is bittersweet.  There were a bunch of great kids in this class that I will miss so much.  If I ever have a kid, I'd want him or her to be just as sweet, charming, adorable, and, not to mention, as smart as some of the ones I had this year.  I can only hope next year's class will amount to the same.

SOLs = blah

So the SOLs are FINALLY OVER!!  It only took 3 weeks!  My stomach hasn't been normal since the first one!  Now I can relax and so can the kids.  I think they did fairly well; I'm not counting my special ed kids.  I really don't think it's fair that they have to take a FIFTH GRADE SOL when they aren't even on level.  I mean, how can you expect a child who reads at a third grade level to PASS A FIFTH GRADE TEST?  That's just setting him or her up for failure.  If we have been differentiating all year long, then they should be taking a test that is on their level.  I totally don't understand how the education system works and I'm a teacher!

Enough said.

Last but not least....Social Studies SOL

So this is the last one.  My stomach and nerves will be much happier at 4 pm today.  I was very sad that I didn't get to teach Social Studies this year.  Hopefully, I will be able to next year.  I really miss it.  I think the kids will do okay.  I know they're excited to be done with the stuff.  Now what to do with them next week....

Our third contestant...the Science SOL

I think the kids are wearing down.  Today was no exception; they didn't have me harassing them to go to bed early or eat a good dinner.  They were lagging today.  Half of them kept putting their heads down.  Mondays is not a good day for SOLs; however, most of them pulled through!
