I wish I could post about all of the cute projects and learning we did last week but...........I really have no idea what my kiddos did last week!!! GASP!!! Why you might ask????
Well I had JURY DUTY!!
And despite my best efforts to fidget, look and the clock and explain that my kiddos certainly wouldn't be able to live without their teacher I was picked to serve on a jury for an actual trial!!!!! Obviously they have no idea how hard it is for a teacher to sit still and only pay attention to one thing at a time!! I was constantly reminding myself to pay attention to what was going on and not think about the other 100 things I could be doing!
The case actually turned out to be pretty interesting and I was able to come home at night. However we had strict instructions not to blog or use other social media - GASP!!!!! I survived (barley)!
Of course since I wasn't planning on being picked so I only prepped for 2 out of the 3 days ahead of time. I was planning to squeeze in all of the fun projects that I didn't want to leave for the sub on Friday....alas no such luck...instead I was scrambling to make plans for Friday. Luckily I have an AWESOME team who pitched in and made things so much easier. My kiddos survived too.....mostly.....as Friday was also our drill day so they had a fire drill, tornado drill and lock down drill with the sub!!! (I felt awful for her!) We did have a serious talk today about the expected behavior during said drills regardless of if I am there for them or not!
So to make up for not having anything cute to share from last week I have linked up a Teen Number Math freebie below. I am using it as a recording sheet in one of my math centers this week, but you can also use it on its own. In my math center the kids are picking a teen number card and then building the number with 10's rods and 1's cubes. Next they find the number on the sheet below and cut and paste the 10's rods and 1's cubes and make it on the ten frames. Click HERE to grab your free copy! I would love to hear your feedback if you download it!
Hope everyone has a good week! Hopefully I will have pictures to share this week!!!
