I had a plan- I swear I had a plan!
There are some amazing linky parties circulating right now- and I wanted to post and link to so many.
I was taking notes and strategically planning what I was going to write, who I was going to join, and where I was going to link-
and all of it was gone.
Gone in a matter of minutes.
How does this happen?
One Little Word.
(No, not THAT One Little Word)
Trust me, no one chooses this as their OLW.
I took Littlest Little in this morning, and sure enough- it's strep.
You would think that with all the germs that I bring home everyday that these lil squirrels would have some immunities built up!!
I'm like a petri dish by the time I get home-
But these little germies were tough ones and they made their way through.
I had to stay home today with him and we are also home tomorrow.
I was dreading having to set up for Day 2 of a sub, especially since it is not the same one. It is just sooooo much work.
I went looking for something to ease the planning- and I found a wonderful surprise!
I found these ladies in TpT and then moved on over to check out their blog.
I found this unit that covered my ENTIRE day tomorrow and the prep time was MINIMAL!!
Clockwise starting at 12:00
Packets for each child for the day
In the words of a close friend-
The pages are all separate- but I decided to make a "packet" for the day for each student (the copier did all the work there).
That way, our sub would only have one thing to pass out.
They will still have regular Math and Reading centers - but the day is centered around the book.
Activities for the whole day.
Talk about an easy plan:)
Thank you ladies!!
If you are planning (or NOT planning) on being out- go check these ladies out- give em some love, tell 'em Squirrels sent ya:)
You may have noticed things were a little nuttier than usual on the blog-
at the top.
They were all there in some form or another before.
Pink hearts, green clovers, wait....nope that's something else...
But now they are all cute little acorns.
And there's a new one.
Yep- I did it.
I added this nutty blog to the world of facebook!
(I know, I know- I'm the last squirrel in the world to not have a page)
but I fixed that-
now Squirrels has GONE GLOBAL!!!
Be sure to head over there and "like" me.
I tend to be jittery and nervous- (squirrelly characteristics) and it is totally compounded when i have to worry about whether or not someone likes me!
This is going to cause me to be on
I hope everyone has a great Wednesday-
