It's that time again....Currently: October! I am linking up with Farley from Oh' Boy...Fourth Grade. I CAN NOT believe it is October already. I think this school year really is going to fly by.
So, a fun little story from this week: grade level team building competion. I am super competitive and my lovely coworker, Curtis, is too. Not a good combo...for the other team levels. Since Curtis skates with roller derby, musical chairs was no joke. Let's just say...everyone near her was scared. I was scared and I was on her team! Long story short, we won (with some bruises)! The next game was basketball shooting. My high school basketball coach would be proud. I bet all those silly boys in the shooting contest. Overall, first grade teachers came out the WINNAHS! We rubbed it in to the other teams *just* a little. Promise. So, as our prize, we get to leave early one day (which we NEVER leave early, so it's the thought that counts!) It's funny how I totally forgot about all the grading, bulletin boards, paperwork, etc. I had to do during that one hour. It was good for all of us!!
Blog is coming soon about our class' "road trip" to Washington D.C. My class is STILL amazed that the president gets to enjoy 136 rooms in the White House. I wish I could pack my 25 lovelies up and actually take them there! :)
Happy October, everyone!!
