Ah another Monday. It's always good to get them over with. Today was not so bad. I implemented my new discipline policy, and it went well. I had 26 students today. Tomorrow I get #27 and I have room for one more. My notes on Friday Folders made an impact-it was quiet today. I got four pages of "I will respect my teacher and classmates" lines from little mean girl-her parents made her write them. She also apologized for talking back to me on Friday. Loud translator was quiet all day today-ALL day. O.D.D. Eddie Haskell aka Parrot (the name I gave another lovely) was quiet too-I have a meeting with his mom on Wednesday. He just doesn't stop making comments about everything I say-it's obnoxious. He's also on the mean side, with little self control. I got an email from his mom warning me about behaviors I would see from him. Great. Those are my top 3 "winners," all seated together, with the non-worker, for easy access. There are others who are less of a distraction, but still distracting. It's quite a class. You really would not believe it. Really.
We are having a book fair at school. I picked these books up for the boys. They were all hits! The Star Wars books are for Quinn, and the other two are for Riley.
This book is super cool.
I also got these. Chocolate calculators. They come in a box that looks like a candy bar. They are even wrapped in foil. The calculator itself looks like a chocolate bar, and it SMELLS like chocolate! Super cool.
I got some fun stuff too-beads (and I need a hole in my head too). I love these czech flower beads. Perhaps I'll have some time this weekend to make some jewelry. I've been meaning an update to the shop.
