Listening: The Sound of Silence…. literally. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Simon and Garfunkel… however, I am soaking in silence after yesterday’s festivities. To start the day off, my school had a morning Halloween Parade. I have never had a school celebrate Halloween and allow the students to dress up. It was so much fun! The day was full of different Halloween theme math and reading reviews- thanks to some of my favorite Tpt/Blogger friends! Later in the evening, we hosted a children’s Halloween party with some of our nearest and dearest friends.
This year we dressed up as The Flintstones…

I have an 18 month old and is it sad I'm not looking forward to potty training?!?!? My son was pretty easy, but I'm nervous about the process with my obstinate daughter!!! I'm sure your baby will get the hang of it! Keep it up 🙂

Your halloween costumes are SERIOUSLY adorable! I can't even handle it. LOVE!
I'm crazy pants about sub plans, too. I label everything, put stickies everywhere, and binder clip all my worksheets in the order they will be needed. I even have a magazine holder full of extra work- like, 3 days of extra work. 🙂 I just want to make sure the sub has everything they need!
Caffeine and Lesson Plans

I love those costumes! You guys really looked fantastic!
I'm exactly like you when it comes to lesson plans. Luckily, I've found a gem of a sub who actually accomplishes everything I ask her to and the kids love her and behave for her. I'm sure you understand how grateful I am for this wonderful woman! I hope that your professional development is wonderful!
I love your blog. Great design and content! Glad that I found you through this month's Currently!

AMEN for halloween on a Friday and your family costume was ADORABLE! I hate making sub plans, but professional development can be a lot of fun and give you a lot of amazing ideas! I found your blog through the November Currently!
I hope you have an amazing November!

I enjoyed silence a lot today. Halloween and conference week left me exhausted. Now, I have sub plans to write for a training on Monday.
Have a great week,

Hi Layla! I found you through Farley's Currently. You are so right about sub plans! Ugh! It's harder to be gone sometimes! I want to share a great site I love for math fact practice called Xtra Math. Maybe you've heard of it. I don't know if it works on a Kindle or not (it is web based and also has an iPad app) but my 4th graders (and their families) loved it! Check it out and maybe it works for you. https://xtramath.org

Hi! I found you through Farley's Currently. I couldn't help but pop over because I'm in Los Angeles, too. (At least, I'm assuming you're in LA since your husband was at the UCLA game) Where do you teach?
Didn't you just LOVE the rain last week? What a treat! I'm so NOT looking forward to the upcoming heat, though! Yuck!
