I just realized that many of my blog friends over here don't teach in the Northeast where we have snow, snow, and more snow. Then you don't know about these little traditions we have....
1-Spoon under the pillow.
2-Throw an ice cube over your shoulder out a window.
3-Pajamas inside out and backwards.
Anyway, these mysterious tasks are rumored to have a snow day/delay in order if students (& teachers) do them. In my lifetime my brother and I have done #2 and #3 often. I'm not ashamed to admit that I also do #3 still just for kicks! :-)
On to the awards!
Mrs. Tilmon nominated me for the Liebster Award! THANK YOU THANK YOU! It's such an honor to know that people read my ramblings. So I get to nominate 5 blogs (I have 4-sorry!) with less than 200 followers. Here's my list:
Lesson Plans and Lattes
To The Square Inch
Living A Wonderful Life
Finding JOY in 6th
NOW on to ONE more thing:
As you know we are studying The Cay and wrap it up this week. We talked about setting and a lot of the kiddos weren't too sure about where the Caribean is. Soooo we made salt dough maps! Then, students water-colored (with my DIY marker/watercolors) the ocean and wrote about the book (rate the story, which character would you want to meet, etc.) I think they came out great in their own messy way (sorry for the poorly lighted picture!)
Happy Evening to All!
