Five for Friday- October 1

Hey everyone! I am linking up with Doodlebugs Teaching for her always fun Five for Friday! I like sharing some school happening and some experiences from my outside school life so people can get to know me better!
Earlier this week I realized I was going to be at two meetings during the day today and tomorrow I would be out. I remembered sometime in 2014 I saw a pin with rules for when there are substitutes. I had my class brainstorm what they thought were good rules for when there was a sub. I asked them to think about what would need to happen for it to be a happy day - a day when everyone goes home happy and the sub has nice things to say about everything and everyone in the note! Today was successful - I got a really good report from the sub, but tomorrow I will be out the whole day. My sub tomorrow is amazing and I hope my kiddos can keep it together.
 This week I went to a free seminar led by Belinda Ellsworth. If you are in direct sales and don't know her, google her now (well, actually after you read this post!). She is amazing and she is a firecracker with so much energy! She has terrific ideas! The hotel was a Crowne Plaza and near the conference rooms was all this cool decor.  Check it out! I sat on one of these barbershop chairs and texted during our break!
Mmmm. Who has a dime for Fresh Candy? Just pull the knob! 
 And check this out, it was at the end of a hallway. Really neat!
OMG We have only been in school a couple weeks and some kids' headphones (after 4 uses) are tangled like crazy! Ack! Do you have any suggestions for how to deal with this?
I found a bunch of old photos at my mom's house! These are just a couple samples! Look at that straight hair. My mom used to blow dry it straight because she didn't know what else to do with it. Cute!
So this is what happens when my hair is just its natural curly self. There is so much going on here. I have a sporty shirt, a rainbow skirt, crazy curls, and playing violin, and look at that clock and wallpaper! Whoah!
Finally so excited to go to NYC this weekend to meet up with some other terrific teachers! I bet I will learn a lot and have fun!

  1. Hi,

    I LOVE your "Sub Rules" poster you made with your class! What a great idea to help the students take ownership and be aware of their behavior while you're out! Your pictures are so cute! :)
    Happy Friday and have fun in New York!

  2. That hotel looks like a fun place to explore. Could you have a headphone monitor in your classroom? Maybe 1-2 responsible students that carefully put headphones away each day and take care of tangles for you. Whatever you do, good luck!

    1. Thanks Storie! Thats a great idea! I will have to think who would be capable of calmly and independently doing it. Might not be the same student(s) who would like to volunteer first!

  3. Love your sub poster!! My students definitely need as many reminders as possible to do the right thing when there is a sub.
