Oh Friday! How I've Missed You! Oh, Spring Break How I Adore You!

Friday, March 22, 2013

Spring break is finally here for me. Yes! I am so in need on some rest. It’s one of the Perks of being a teacher. Did you see that I said, “Perk.” Not the only reason why I became a teacher, which is what most people think. Oh, well. I digress.

I have 10 days off. But I am guessing I will be working on many of them. I have IEP’s and grades to complete. Oh well. At least I will get to do them from the comfort of home. I will take that.

This has been a crazy few weeks.. My sweet aunt passed away a week and a half ago. She was like my second mama so it has been a real rough go of things. I have two nieces who absolutely adored her. They are 4 and 6. Death is so hard on little ones. Definitely hard to comprehend. My 6-year-old niece has already been through the death of my mom, so I think she handled it as good as expected. She was trying to even explain it to her sister. They both had questions, which my word, talk about a tearjerker. I think we have all been doing well considering.

Well enough with my ramblings.

Freebie Friday!

Friday, March 8, 2013

So This week will be short and sweet, as I have too many irons in the pot, or whatever that expression is.

Here is my Freebie.  Click the Link Below to go to Teachers Pay Teachers and download it.

It is for speech. I think it is so important to work on Speech Language Goals in the classroom, not just during therapy.

It is so easy to integrate it into the day. =

Currently March

Saturday, March 2, 2013

I cannot believe it is March. February certainly flew by.

So here is my currently: 

Yes, I’m watching the Lorax. It is on Netflix. So I’m Making my boyfriend watch it (read he is only half paying attention) with me. Ssshhh! Don’t tell any one. I’m a big dork. But I love it. 

My Work family. I Was blessed this year to work with 2 amazing ladies. Another Teacher and Aide whom I worked with last year call me for advice from time to time. I’m glad to finally be getting together with them this coming week.

I’m sure you are asking yourself if I love my work family why do I need to fix my resume. Well without going into too much detail. Changes are happening in the ESC where I work. Changes, which I originally thought were going to be for the good, are not exactly what I thought they were going to be. Regardless it looks like my classroom is closing.
I love working with students with Autism and I would like to find another teaching job that lets me continue to do what I love. I’m hoping my aides can come with, but I know that’s only wishful thinking.

Summer Break. Why, Yes. Spring break is around the corner, but honestly, I want Summer break. This year has been stressful and I’m tired. Ready for an extended Break.

A date night. I want to see Identity Theft and have some good Italian food. Maybe a good drink or two. I just need to RELAX

LIKE: Sarcasm. I just do. It’s fun. My sister and I are very sarcastic with each other.
Love: Silliness. I just love to be silly. Silly with my students, silly with my nieces, with my boyfriend. Silly is just fun. =
Hate: Sick. Being sick. Right now my ears hurt, my throat hurts and generally I ‘m just not feeling all that great.

So that’s a wrap on my Currently March.

I  linked up with Farley over at Oh’ boy! Fourth Grade. Head on over to link up too! 

Testaphobia & Burnt-out-itis!

Friday, March 1, 2013

I think I’m sick. I have what I like to call “testaphobia” with a mild case of “burnt-out-it is” The only cure I’m afraid is Spring Break, which is 3 LONG weeks away.
I'm doing Alternate Assessments right now. I'm surprised and yet not surprised at how my kiddos are doing. For the most part they are doing well, but we are not finished. 
If you knew how this week has gone for me, you would understand. Heck, you may even buy me a massage. I won’t go in to it, but if you are of the praying variety, pray for my aides and I.

Because of all of the craziness of the week, I’ve not had too much time to make any freebies, but yet, I’ve got some for you. These are ones I did and forgot about it.

Here is my Counting Cubes sheet. It’s an Oldie but a Goodie.

Here is some Clip art as well! Free of Course. 

Here is the link
to my clip art I made. Now, don’t laugh at it. I’m not the best artist in the world. IN a list of “Things I Suck at” Drawing would be number 1 with a bullet. But the clip art love drew me in, so I tried my hand at it. Since I’m relatively new at creating it and I’m not sure it is THAT great, I’m giving away my clip art free. I have about 3-4 packages up on teacherspayteachers so nose around my store and find the rest. Just remember don’t laughat least, don’t laugh too hard.
I promise I will finish my top 10 Apps Blog List Later this week.

IN the meantime, enjoy the freebies and Happy March!
