I'm linking up with Farley for Currently, April style! I'm still feeling down in the dumps, achy all over, just not good. But again, trying to keep my spirits up & keep my mind on other things.

Like praying my classroom isn't falling apart without me there. Things of that nature.

So I filled this out last night, but the internet here stopped working [typical], so I had to hold off on posting it. I totally forgot to make my DWTS prediction on here, but I would have been wrong anyway. If you're a viewer, what do you think about the new judging rule? They announced that now, the bottom two couples would have to "dance for their life". Okay, I stole that phrase from another one of my fave shows, SYTYCD. [So You Think You Can Dance for all of you less pathetic that myself!]

To explain a few of my answers:: Like I said, I've been out all week, then I'm really on Spring Break. I'm petrified to enter my classroom after spring break.  I'm still going to Jamaica on Sunday, and packing for that has literally been the last thing on my mind. I haven't had the time or internet connection to read the other blogs that linked up, so if I have the same super power as you, lo siento! My magic mute button would work wonderful on many people in my life at times [mom sister boyfriend, etc] But it would be especially helpful in the classroom. Picture this.. I'm working with a small group during centers. A noisy group is at the Read to Someone center. They are doing what they are supposed to be doing, but they are just. too. loud. MUTE. Problem solved!

I've realized that I've previewed/edited/won a few products that I never posted about, so I'm going to post about one now!

I won Mandy's Area and Perimeter Tic Tac Toe! I was so hoping to win this, because my class was testing out of this unit this week, and it would have been a great review for them. Well, life happened and I didn't get it ready, so we'll have to play in review for the DCAS coming up. I LOVE Mandy! She always has little giveaways, and she is SO generous! Go visit her blog & her TPT store! =)

Mandy's Tips for Teachers


  1. Love your blog! Your newest follower...


  2. So sorry to hear about your Pop-Pop! I lost my Grandma and Grandad to cancer within less than a year of each other right after I graduated from High School. I still think of them often and value everything they ever taught me. It stinks that those we love can't always continue with us on our entire journey. Thinking of you!

  3. I am so sorry to read about you Pop Pop. My grandmother also had dementia. It was a blessing and a curse. It hurt so badly to lose the grandma I remembered (my "Poppy"), but was also a blessing because her body had deteriorated so much in age that it would have killed her. So I can totally understand.
    Thank you so much for the sweet shout out! I hope the game is useful!
