After all that sugar yesterday, I'm more than a little stupid today.
I fully intend to post about instruction tomorrow
because all kinds of interesting and important learning stuff
is going on in my room.
Just not right now.
Cause I'm still shoving leftover sugar lumps
in my face.
But, two things:
1. Don't forget to link up and share your hunny story.
A couple of my favorite bloggers have promised to
and now I'm compulsively checking it
like a nutter. I am so excited that people shared their stories!
*BTW, I'm amazed.
So many lovely couples
have known each other since they were kids!
This is amazing to me.
I met my hunny three years ago
when I was 27.
I can't think of anyone
I knew when I was a kid
who I would want to be married to now.
who knew me as a kid
who would want to marry me.
But then, I was a kid.
Maybe those guys were
I guess I'll never know.
2. President's Day Freebie.
One of my colleagues mentioned some work she was doing
and another mentioned Lincoln.
So I merged them.
No, it's not President Lincington.
It's a Venn Diagram.
I had to make it.
I needed to do something with that cute KPM Doodles clipart
I bought the other day whenI was on a clipart high.
Grab it here from TPT.
OH! And a question -
99% of my TPT feedback is super supportive
and makes me shoot little butterflies
out of my eyeballs.
But there have been two comments that broke my heart.
Ok, that's a little dramatic.
Keep in mind I'm overly sensitive when it comes to that stuff.
My heart wasn't completely broken...
it just has little dents.
They weren't completely negative.
One said something was too hard for her kids
and another said something else was a little too easy.
My problem is
we're all in different states.
Standards are different in different places.
which doesn't make sense to me
and I really am not crazy about.
Texas stinks, especially.
My standards aren't necessarily yours.
So, maybe I think something is too hard for third graders,
but guess what - I have to teach it
even though they're all confused at first.
They get it eventually.
So I put "third grade" on the applicable grade levels
cause it's stuff I have to work with in third grade
or whatever grade.
I guess I need to just use my own judgment and not the standards necessarily
because who's writing those anyway?
People who aren't in the classroom
and want to be politicians
which means they're nuts.
But anyway, have you had any problems with that?
Or is it just me?! :/
Not shockingly, this is WAY longer than I expected.
