My favorite band right now.  RMRS - Pillow (Acoustic)

Half of my students finished the assignment that I assigned while I was gone.

ambedu:

I want to reward that half with some sort of independent practice activity, but I’m not sure what.

Ideas? Something grammar/poetry/writing?

Have them write something and then enter it on http://www.tagxedo.com/app.html and create a cool little word cloud. 

Just a thought.

Macbook?

Hmmm.  I am seriously considering purchasing a Macbook for my next machine despite the fact that I grew up on Windows.

I have one answer to this question and it is always yes. 
Like, do you have to go to the bathroom?  Then go.  Do you need to get up and walk around for two minutes and get a drink of water because it’s fourth period and you’ve been sitting for four hours?  Then go.  Do you need to get out of the room for a minute because you’re feeling anxious/stir crazy/hot/cold/claustrophobic/sick of my voice?  Then go.
Go quietly. Come back quietly.  Don’t interrupt me.  Just have a seat and I’ll catch you up when I have a second if you missed anything major.
There’s SOOOOO much to deal with in a day. I just can’t tell kids they can’t go to the bathroom.  I won’t. 

I concur. Do you concur?

It’s snowing in Wisconsin.

In April.

Maybe it’s my east coast naivety, but I always thought it snowed in Wisconsin like 8/12 months…

No! Usually our spring and summer are pretty nice.

This year had been particularly brutal however.

I want to see snow.  I haven’t seen it in years! We don’t get much down here where I live. 

Sunday Drive with a Wendy’s frosty shake.

Sunday Drive with a Wendy’s frosty shake.

Really want to do something today.

ambedu:

These are the times I hate living in a small town. I can either go to Menards, Shopko, Walmart or Kohls.

Maybe I’ll drive 40 minutes to head to the bigger town nearby.

40 minutes…makes my 20 minute drive to the big town seem like nothing.

Income Tax

I just saw my W2 on my desk. I need to work on and file my income tax form!

Tech issues

wincherella:

So, I would like to go to our Board office and take away all their computers. Tell them that they can only use them for an hour between 2-3 and they have to sign up for them at least a week in advance, and they can’t sign up for them more than two days in a row. Also, when they…
