suggestions, please...

The summer is right around the corner - Thursday at 9:26am is when it truly begins for me.  In the meantime, I've got some things to do here at work (yes, I'm here on a beautiful Saturday).  My room has to be cleaned, my grades posted, papers graded, books organized, supplies tallied, etc.  To keep me sane - and motivated - I want need some new music.  So, please feel free to leave me a comment with your recommendations!

I promise to think of you as I close-up shop for the year and blast my music!  :)

following directions...

...or not!

Here's what we did in class today.  This lesson never gets old, NEVER!  :)

(Please excuse the quality of these photos.  I had used the Print Screen option to make this show up.)

Any of you actually follow the directions? 

I had 2 kids in my 1/2 block (of 32) who did what they were supposed to.  The rest of the class simply untied their shoelaces, crawled under their desks, spun around a few times and failed to carefully read the assignment.  Regardless, this task always creates great discussion...and a reminder as to why we read directions!
