1. Seuss Week. This was a huge adventure for me. I spent ALL weekend last weekend matching standards and working on plans. It was exhausting and exhilarating all at the same time. I feel empowered now baby. This Seuss thing is huge and probably at least one blog unto itself. But today I am focused on my Five, and it is definitely part of my week. We had a theme... Monday was supposed to be pajama day, but we didn't have school, Tuesday was Wacky Tacky Day (I didn't participate for oh-so-many reasons, but one was that I didn't know exactly what that meant), Wednesday was Seuss Hair Day and I just didn't do it because I didn't have any great ideas, Thursday was dress like your favorite character day and what do you know... I did that one! Friday was supposed to be hat day. Friday was sort of everything day for us though. Since we missed out on pajama day, a favorite of everyone, we said that students could wear their pajamas AND their hats on Friday! Friday was also "pickle/popcorn day" at our school, when you can buy a pickle or popcorn for $1. We decided to culminate our week with some Seuss movies, popcorn (or pickle), and our pajamas. And yes, it was still hat day. *whew* I am tired just typing all of that, imagine living it!

2. Computer lab. We have computer lab on Mondays and Wednesdays at 8:30. Half my class misses this because they are at ELL class. This week our wonderful computer lab teacher, Mrs. Pierce, put on some Cat in the Hat activities for my students. Computer lab happened to fall on Seuss Hair Day and one of my students participated. Sadness that only one student participate, but how awesome did she look?!?

4. Friday is eat lunch with the teacher day. If you earned a classroom reward ticket and chose the one that says "Hungry? Eat Lunch with the Teacher" then you get to eat with me on Friday. One student has been waiting and waiting and waiting. We finally got it done on pajama/hat day! How awesome is it that this is so exciting to my little friends?
5. I got a really cute picture of my Punky at the theater today and another one of her sitting on my sensory table playing with her Kindle while I
messed around worked hard at the school doing "teachery stuff." It is Mom and Punky weekend and we had fun seeing "Escape from Planet Earth" and she likes her new Kindle cover. We are headed home now to do whatever we want to until we have to journey to pick up the Redhead (whose hair hasn't actually been red for awhile now, but she'll always be MY redhead) tomorrow. I'm not gonna set foot in this room again until Monday! (Maybe if I say it over and over again, I really won't).
Happy Weekend everyone! I love Five for Friday, whether I do it on Friday, Saturday, or whenever. Hop over to Doodlebugs and read 'em, link up, laugh, comment. You could follow Farley's idea and comment on 2 before and 1 after, but that's an idea/suggestion, not a "rule." The only rule as far as I can tell is to blog Five Random Things from your week or from your day!
