Well...It was a Tuesday!
What can I say? It was totally a Tuesday in my classroom. The kids were so good this morning. It was a blast. Then this afternoon life fell apart. The kids were rowdy and rude to each other. I believe in them SO much, I know that they can do it. I think my downfall now is that I don't have many consequences for them so they are learning that they can do what they want and not pay for it. That has changed these last few days. I am trying really hard to use logical consquences. We will see how that goes. After school I went and got our car at the local garage. It needed to be inspected and serviced. That cost a hefty $50 I didn't really have to spend on that. Such is life. Then I had to go back to the school to finish planning for tomorrow. AND since I have faculty meeting in the morning, I have to be up earlier than I would like and try and get the two kiddos ready to go as well. Thank heavens for my wife and her willingness to help. I made it home in time to have dinner with the family before my wife headed out to a church activity night for the ladies. They did canning stuff. While she was gone I had the kids help me pick up the house while I vaccumed. It felt good to help out. She works so hard, she deserves a good dose of help now and then (more "now" than "then"). She just got home a few minutes ago. I am going to go. I have a college class I am studying for (hence no blogging last night as I turned in my first assignment late because the class was Saturday and it was Melon Days). I sure hope all is well! Enjoy...

I just found your blog on blogcatalog - I'm looking for hosts for my virtual book tour. I am writing a geography series, the Junior Geography Detective Squad, 50-state, mystery, trivia series. The way I've written the books (first one is out already and the second should be out in January if not sooner) is like a handheld game that gives the kids clues to a state. Each state will have it's own book. The clues can be obscure or generally well-known facts but in the end, everyone should know the state from the last two or three clues at least.ReplyDelete
If you would like to host my tour, check out my blog - http://jgdsseries.blogspot.com and let me know what you think. Also, if you know other teachers who have blogs that might be interested, I would appreciate you passing the information to them as well.
The series is geared to fourth through sixth graders, but I have had third graders enjoy the first book as well as high school seniors and adults. The reviews or feedback I'm getting seem to think this is an excellent idea and that it needs to be in the schools. Please contact me at email@example.com if you are interested or know someone who might be interested in hosting me between November 17-22. Thanks in advance -
