I noticed this week, as I get to the gym at 5:20 that the sky is no longer pitch black! By the last day of school it's fully bright then, we're getting there...
I have a thing for ketchup. I eat a lot of it. I brought veggie "meat" balls for lunch this week, which I dunk into the ketchup. I had no idea how much I wanted and the thought of not having enough was not acceptable. So I brought the bottle!
One of my math centers this week was using dominoes to practice multiplying. I had one kiddo was wouldn't settle down at the center. I compromised. I brought a pile of tiles down to the floor, sat with him, and let him build a domino wall with the ones he solved. After 8 minutes he had a nice chain to tip over!
