Hugs and Kissess

Happy Friday!
I am exhausted!

Whatever is going around {tummy bug}, has landed in my room, again!
This time there was no poop in the socks~ but it was a close one... and I am totally not talking about one of them!
I made three trips to the nurse's office this morning....and after three doses of medicine, I was okay~ until the heartburn kicked in around 1pm. And I ate a half a bottle of tums....

And you're thinking, why would she stay?!?!? Get a sub for goodness sakes!
Well I am going to be out with my daughter's appts, and with my dental appts, and, honestly-
it is harder to not be there than it is to be there sometimes!
Teaching- The only job in the world where we come to work sick so that we can relax on our sick days!

I had my Pre conference on Tuesday and my Eval on Wed. I think it went okay. It was a planning eval. So she more or less was looking at my plans the whole time. We dont have our post conference til the end of next week- I won't remember anything by then!
I did get a new student on the day of the eval. She came from a school where they don't take grades and there isn't a lot of pressure on day in and she is already making excuses.....Aye ye ye!

I did have time to redo the door. Not anywhere as ambitious as Little Red was, but still cute.
We use poetry often- but we are also required to have a showcase piece for their portfolio. So I used the adorable hot cocoa mugs I have seen on Pinterest

We wrote the alphabet vertically and then brainstormed in groups to fill each line with a word or phrase that has to with winter.
These words were going to then help them to create their Acrostic POems.
They were sweet- and some of them are going to grow up to be teachers. Here are a few of their choices when told to think of snow and winter weather:
d- day off
n- no school
o-out of school
s- snow day

and one of my sweetie girls made XOXOXOXOX for x. I asked her why and she said because mommies love to snuggle and hug with their kids when they are home from school...sweet.....delusional....but sweet!

The poems are on the mugs...kind of hard to see the poems.

We are going to get lots and lots of rain over the next few days.
These things you can be assured will be happening: There will be naps. There will be comfort food. There will be blogging!

I have to get on and see how my luck is with all these giveaways I have entered!!!!! Sleep in if you can!!!


  1. I can't even begin to count the times I have went to work sick ... just because it was more work preparing for a sub than going to work. How sad is that??? lol

  2. SUPER cute hot cocoa board!! LOVE!!!!

  3. I never take a day off unless I know that my favorite sub is available. She is wonderful! She does not want you to leave lesson plans because she loves using her own bag of tricks. I wish there were more subs like that and then maybe more of us would actually stay home when we are sick rather than infected our students. I can remember teaching once with a 102 temp. That was not fun!

    Thanks for the cute poem idea. I love it and might try it next week for a writing activity.


  4. I totally get what you're saying about the subs. I say I'm only writing sub plans if I'm going somewhere fun or just playing hooky. But I won't write sub plans if I'm sick. I'll just go.
    I hope you're all better!!
    Those cocoa mugs are cute!! Cute, cute, cute!

  5. I was home yesterday with that stomach bug. It's bad news! Wouldn't have made it at school with or without socks.

  6. lol!I'd rather go to school on my death bed than deal with sub plans (and reteaching what my sub taught anyway)....loving the hot cocoa!!

Thanks for leaving some "Nutty Chatter!"
