P52: 46th week around the sun

Friday at dismissal, the 4th grade teacher looked at me and went, "it doesn't feel like parent teacher conferences were 4 days ago..." - he was right! This was one busy and exciting week!! 

I had a very lazy Sunday, just puttering, shopping, saw 12 Years a Slave (go see it!), and geared up for this amazing week that was. 

Monday was indeed, conference day. I survived! The parents are happy, the kids are happy, I am happy! 

The rest of the week was all about "Thanksgivukkah" - on Thursday, as a school we traveled to Plymouth Plantation and the Mayflower where we explored, sang the Thanksgivukkah song, and lots of other awesome-ness that I will share tomorrow. Oh and I was filmed for a PBS feature on Thanksgivukkah (more tomorrow!)

By Friday, I was dead to the world! This was one fun week, for sure! 

Highligh of the week: a relaxing massage at the end of a fun, but hectic, week! Nothing says Friday afternoon like having the stress kneaded out of you!

Favorite teaching moment:  my class being rockstars on Thursday as PBS filmed out class and lesson. They acted as though there wasn't a camera or boom mike in their faces and were AMAZING (have I mentioned my class rocks?)

Random-osity: I have 4 colored pens that the kids know they may not touch. I use them to mark their papers, mark up my plan book, and write notes to myself. Controlling, me? Never!
And! I entered a photo of mine in my city's First Light contest - it's a populatiry contest now! If you could, could you please go to the link below and like the picture! I would love to win!

It is always a delight to read your adventures for the week. I have wrote down this movie and hope to see it soon. I watched a documentary called "Babies"...have you seen it? Rented it from the library. SOO good. They document 4 different babies from around the world for two years...just amazing the difference in the cultures.
