Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I am feeling especially happy happy happy tonight because I am officially on spring break! I feel so refreshed and relaxed at the moment, sitting here on my computer with Breaking Bad on, while also texting with friends to see what they are up to this weekend. I feel like I haven’t seen some of them in forever and I miss them.
Anyway, it’s time for my favorite linky!
Let’s do this!
Now, if you follow me on Instagram, you might remember seeing this photo:
I spent Sunday night preparing for my defense of my portfolio that was on Monday. I was extremely nervous for this because I really do not like talking in front of people. I know that makes no sense considering I talk in front of people every day, but they are kids! Well, I went in Monday morning to school and left at noon to go do my presentation at 12:45. I passed! Masters, here I come very, very soon. I was so excited that I went and picked up my two favorites: Chick Fil A and Dunkin Donuts iced coffee.
I know what you are thinking. I’m very healthy.
Then, Boyfriend brought me these when he came home to congratulate me:
So pretty! They really make our apartment look like spring!
One of my firsties and I matched this week. We actually both had coral tops on too, but I failed to catch that in the photo. We both thought it was so funny, us just bee-boppin’ around, dressed like one another.
We did some super fun Easter activities today since we will be on spring break next week, the week before Easter. We had such a fun day!
We ate jelly beans. The Starburst kind. The best kind.
We wrote a story about if we were the Easter bunny and made an Easter bunny to go with it. Our Easter bunny template actually came from Doodle Bugs Teaching. Just click on that link if you are interested. It’s very cute. Plus, my firsties need some practice with tracing so I had them choose the colors for the Easter bunnies and had them trace the template. They turned out super duper cute.
My babies. Because… Why not?
We had a staff meeting this morning. Our principal gave us each a green heart (our school color is green) and we wrote the reason why we teach. This is why I teach. It’s for the kids! Those smiles. Those happy faces. Those moments when everything comes together and they just get it. Sometimes, it can get really easy to forget that focus of why we do what we do. It’s important to reconnect with that reason.
Happy weekend, everyone!!
I love starburst Jelly Beans – they *are* the best!
Also: Love the activity your principal made you do! I think this is a great thing to do with staff…and I may steal it for the beginning of next year! Thanks for sharing!
