When fragile looking crocus bloom in my New England garden in March, it's time to do Haiku poetry with my students! I love the simplicity
Would love to do this with our new addition her cousin who will be arriving right around the same time in March!
Tulip Fields in Holland - It's been a dream of mine since I was a little girl to see the tulips in bloom in The Netherlands, I can't tell you my disappointment to go there when I was a child only to discover tulips don't bloom in the snow. It was winter time, so I need to go back in the spring. :)
I used to keep my scale in the kitchen and when I would go to eat junk I'd step on my scales first and be like NOOO FATTY DON'T! lmao Think it's time to do it again!...lol
My new chair. I fell in love with the pink and silver. It's currently sitting in my (waiting to be decorated) living room and I need to

I love this activity! My former students have created some beautiful poetry with this style.
Tons of great ideas to ease your students back in after a holiday break! One of the most important things I always do following any break is review our classroom procedures and expectations. This is usually about the time of year when my kids start feeling VERY comfortable with me and we all start getting a little lax on procedures and rules.$
I don't always vacuum but when I do 90% of the time is spent trying to suck up something big enough I can do it with my hands
You do make me smile more than I ever have... When I get your texts, my phone rings and it's your ringtone, when I pass you in the mornings, when you walk to my truck and climb in... the list goes on and on... I love you so much!! Thank you for making my cheeks hurt!!

Thinking about all the time I spent here while living in New England, brings me to my happy place.

students keep on desks, throughout the day call out "time check" and students record the time....I used to do this when I taught math, really gets the kids to be able to read a clock!
Now I know what to do with my favoriate red purse that has seen better days! Give it a new life in the garden!
5 Things Whovians MUST DO in Cardiff, Wales. For when I go to England at end of my school years
Thank you for my recovery, for sparing my life, my family for loving me when I wasn't lovable & for giving me the willingness & strength to face another day. I am truly grateful for my new life. May my recovery bring hope to those still in the dark! We don't do this journey alone, we just do it one day at a time.
I don't like the perfect matching, but I do love the ceiling covered with lights. I wanted to do this with my own room a long time ago.
Haha I do this all the time, but it's normally when my oldest siblings have friends over. xD
Add one quart of this to one gallon of water. I dip sculptures that kids paint with tempera into this mix. I use glaze tongs to keep the shiny sparkly mix off of my hands. When the students' work is dry it is coated in a thin layer of shiny metallic plastic. The kids love this stuff. Order it from School Arts Specialty, formerly known as Sax Art Supply. It's about 18 bucks a quart.
Whenever we ask a child to do something and he or she responds with "I'd love to!" then a pom pom goes in the jar. When it's full, we go out for frozen yogurt. We don't do it ALL the time, but it's an investment in a habit that has resulted in sweet responses (even without the yogurt). -April
Garlic in my garden------why did I just buy garlic sets in March, when it says here it should be planted in the fall with my tulips and daffodils>>
Blarney Castle, Ireland - It's almost time to take off with Expedition Ireland! March is the month, join in the fun!
I don't always fall in love... But when I do it's always with someone that turns out to be.. 'Emotionally unavailable'.
Love this quote. I become my most creative this time of year. This is when all the fun new things crop up in my house!
When I was a kid
I wish I loved to make bread. I really do. I love the smell of fresh baked bread. I love the taste. I love the texture. I love the warmth. I make homemade bread from time to time, but thats the thing… it takes “time.” When I was in the first year or two of …
I need to do this next time one of my students forgets their name!!!
I don't always check the time on my phone, but when I do, I forget to check the time on my phone.
Steer Killed at the California Rodeo Salinas - Central Coast News KION/KCBA Personally, I used to love the rodeos when I was a kid visiting Tucson, AZ with my family back in the 60's during Christmas holidays. But now since learning about the BRUTAL CRUELTY inflicted upon these poor animals, I DETEST THEM! This horrifying incident in California is just 1 of many tragedies that befall these poor animals! THIS BARBARISM NEEDS TO BE BANNED! IT'S TIME TO GROW UP!
Slow Cooker Indian Chicken Stew - I really love my slow cooker when I know I won't have much time to prepare dinner in the evening.
It's that time of year again... when my daughter randomly pops up on Pinterest in her I Love Lucy costume. :)
