Happy Monday to Me...

Happy Monday!

And I am being serious- Happy Monday- 

yes that day that starts with "M" and usually ends in
That day that starts the work week and ends the weekend.
That day that the line at the copier is suuuuuper long in the morning.
That day that EVERYONE has a note in their folder.
That day that the laminator runs out of film.
That day that your own personal children have a cough or  tummy bug.
That day that introduces the most material and is the hardest to make up.
That day.
Happy Monday.

It WAS a happy one for me.
I finished my plans early Sunday morning
(because The MR wanted to clean out the
garage and I had to work feverishly at the computer, so I wouldn't have to help).

I printed out Math Stations too- (after a showdown to purchase MORE ink).
The battle was worth it though-
Take a look at these sweeties LOVIN these Apple Dice Games
These are from Tammy @
Live Love Laugh

I printed.
I placed them in sheet protectors.
I put the correct amount of dice in my Gerber food containers (love how they make dice stay together).

I added them to the center boxes- had an aide help with directions
My kiddos loved them and can't wait to move to a new one tomorrow!
Kudos to you, Tammy-
we are approximately 650 miles from each other and you mananged to have my ENTIRE class engaged in Math today!
Thank you:)

Our school is using this program this year as we adopt CCSS and try to go deeper with less standards and  more time,
If you are using this program I would love to pick your brain- leave a comment or email me @

Hope everyone has  great night and an even better tomorrow!


  1. My Monday today was good too! Last year Mondays were such a wash. I felt like no matter how many AWESOME things I planned, everything was bound to fail! For some reason this year is much more pleasant. Hooray!
