Happy New Year!
You didn't think SOMEONE was in my pj's other than me, did you??? ;)
Wow! Is it really 2013? Well...I'll be honest...as you can see from my "Currently", it's time for me to get back to reality and get motivated to rock and roll in this new year! Thanks Farley for the oh so cute January Currently! Be sure to head on over to Oh Boy Fourth Grade to check out some other awesome Currentlys!
I have SOOOOO enjoyed this break! I did spend A LOT of quality time snuggling in my new PJ's, it's true! Did you know that you can really DO ANYTHING you want in PJ's?
Here are 5 things I successfully accomplished while still in my PJ's!
#1: Napped---a-LOT! No surprise that PJ's work well here!
#2: Watch movies, TV, play the XBox, really anything electronically related!
#3: Cook! Not that I did much of that. But I swear all the meals I cooked in PJ's just tasted better!
#4: Ride in a go-cart! And I REALLY wish I had a picture to show you this one! The youngest kiddo got a shiny new red go-cart for Christmas and
I really wanted to take that bad boy for a spin they wanted me to come see them ride. Well...people...I just wasn't ready to get out of my pj's just yet. SO...I went out and somehow ended up taking a ride while I was there! All 5 foot 5 of me squished into a go-cart built for a 6 year old! The only way I survived was the cushioning provided by my snuggly PJ's!
#5: Work on new things for our classroom and hopefully to share with you in our store!
On that note, we are going to be hitting on math HARD once we go back this week (and I promise I will not wear my PJ's to school)!!! Page and I both feel like we have gotten a little behind because we are really trying to give kiddos time to grapple with new concepts and make discoveries of their own. And darn it, that just takes more time than "dishing" out the learning.
We started our shape unit right before the break and are loving it so far. The kids are really making the coolest discoveries and are even coming up with stuff we didn't even anticipate! LOVE!
So here's a quick look at the unit we created and are using. We call it Shape Explosion! It's over 120 pages of games, activities, lesson ideas for each standard, student book, more games, and practice sheets.
If you're like us, and need to hit it hard, maybe this will do just the trick!

Whatever you may do, we hope that your new year is full of excitement, love, and all things good!
Here's to hoping we ALL have a BLESSED 2013!!!
Thanks so much for welcoming us into your blogging hearts!
