Charlie Brown's teacher...

Rain+no outdoor recess+no walking on track+slooow internet so Adventures in Fitness wouldn't work+birthday party=??  Crazy teacher!

Well, today apparently I was Charlie Brown's teacher.  They heard "wah wah wah, wah wah lunch"  or maybe "wah wah wah wah wah Snack."  They just heard the magic words they wanted to hear and nothing else.  Am I the only one with this problem this week?  Even my super fabulous kids didn't listen!  Grrrr! 

We still managed to get quite a bit done today however.  I LOVE this time of year when they are such good readers and problem solvers.  It's just the magic of first grade.  You all know!

I found these CUTE little butterfly boxes on sale at Kmart last week.  I modge-podged numbers on the boxes. My kiddos always seem to rub the permanent marker off so I'm going to try this.  I put coins in the boxes to let my darlings practice counting coins.  They have managed to keep all the coins in the right boxes so far which is a miracle.  Aren't they cute??

Here is the recording sheet if you'd like it.  Grab it here.

So sad that Dick Clark died and Pat Summit is not returning as Head Coach of the Lady Vols..  It just won't be the same!
One of my college roomies is coming through town tomorrow so it will be wine and movie night. Yay!  Should I blog after a bottle of wine?  Haha, goodnight!
