Tuesday April 17th.
Dear Teacher Diary,
Today was day 148 of first grade.
I am starting to think my students will follow directions soon.
Maybe tomorrow is the big day.
Maybe everything we have discussed for the last 148 days will just
ripen marinate sink in mature click. make sense come together.
Yes I am sure of it.
We are working on our book study of Sylvester and the Magic Pebble. It goes well with studying rocks. 4 out of 5 teachers agree.
Isn’t there always 1 that doesn’t agree?
I am pretty sure 5 would agree….
but 4 out of 5 makes a better fraction and rocks and fractions are my life right now. MY LIFE.
Today I played the John Lithgo version of Sylvester and the Magic Pebble off of United Streaming.
A video in the morning?! Can it be true?
Then we worked on our book study. (fancy way to do a theme-y reading response)
Don’t these two below look like Rocky and Ce Ce from Disney’s Shake it Up?
It’s cute till you hear the Be Be Be my BFF song 24/7 at school.
officially banned the song.
Dream Squasher in CHARGE
Guess who else came to class today!!!
I introduced the class to Sharon Stone, Slate, and Punk Rock.
They were a HIT! I even went into the story line a little bit.
Then we went out on the playground to find our own pet rocks.
|no Kristin this isn’t my entire class….just the ones that had already found their rocks. 🙂 🙂|
In the Science Center this week we are sorting by color and graphing our results.
Tomorrow we will paint our pet rocks and add their eyes and hair.
I am totally the best teacher ever.
Little do they know they will be writing ALL ABOUT IT.
Then it was fraction time! We did two activities today.
Ever since reading Going Nutty with Miss Squirrels, I have encountered many a squirrel and thought of her blog and her funny personality. Well today I just couldn’t resist snapping a couple pictures of a certain squirrel ride on our playground.

About a year ago I made my teacher song and video set to Infernal Gallop.
But since I hadn’t made up a silly teaching song in WAY TOO LONG…
Daughter and I wrote the lyrics, genius boy did the filming, and a few of my FUN and FABULOUS coworkers (and some teacher kids) starred in the video.
