Listening: We seemed to FLY through our math lesson today so I grabbed our money and dominoes to keep the kiddos engaged. The money game is something I adapted from Math Wire. You can read more about the game here. The dominoes came from Box Cars and One Eyed Jacks and you can read more about them here and here.
Loving: This has been a very tough week for my district. There is an ongoing investigation at the high school involving bullying and abuse. Obviously, there is a lot of media attention and speculation and blame is flying. I pray for everyone involved and hope they can be led to right decision regarding discipline.
Thinking: I have had the same cheap-o grill for nearly 10 years and I am ready to Toss. It. Out! It never lights, the flame only really cooks/burns in one corner of the grill and it is falling apart. After my husband urged me to "think" about this new grill, we are heading to Menard's to buy it anyway!
Wanting: This week Holly at the Fourth Grade Flipper shared a post about a great online company called Stitch Fix. You can read her post here. After filling out a Style Profile, a personal shopper sends you five fashion pieces, like tops, pants, jewelry, etc. If you like them, you buy them. If not, you return them free of charge. How cool is that!?!? BUT they are so busy, I won't be getting my first order until mid-July! So to ease my urges, I had a mini-shopping spree the other night and my selections should be arriving any day now. My most anticipated piece is a pair of brown knee-high boots.
Needing: This rain has turned my garden into a mud puddle and at this rate, I won't be eating fresh veggies until October!
Surprise: Today my Surprise Blog is Kristin at Teaching in a Nutshell. I chose her because she was the last person to comment on one of my own blog posts. She's also a fellow Illinoisan and a new blogger so I hope you can head over there to check out her great posts!
