12 on the 12th

I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for her first 12 on the 12th linky party! I love this idea! I was lucky to have an admin. day today {no kiddies!} to work on my report cards, so I just carried my trusty iPhone around with me and snapped some random shots of my day! Here we go...

1. Piles and piles of student work/assessments that are finally corrected and ready to send home!

2. My favourite non-teaching blog is Cake Wrecks. I love the constipated Angry Birds today. Funny stuff!

3. Bella enjoying the beautiful spring weather! Normal high for today would be -2°C (28°F) but today it got up to 8°C (46°F)! So nice!! 

4. Due to the beautiful weather we are expecting this week, we vowed to BBQ every night this week! Chicken breast last night, steak tonight... Maybe smokies tomorrow?

5. Still having a blast with our Dr. Seuss activities this week!

6. This is the view from my classroom this afternoon. Last week there was at least two feet of snow back there. Today... grass!! 

7. We are studying our five senses in Science right now. This was a mystery sound activity we did last week. I will post some five senses freebies later this week!

8. Here is our math problem all ready to go for tomorrow morning. Starting the week off with some leprechaun fun!

9. This is my daily cute-ness calendar. I liked this picture because the orange tabby looks just like my Oscar kitty when he was younger! He has also been known to knock the coffee pot over and get coffee/grinds EVERYWHERE! 

10. Our weekly graph this week is "Do you believe in leprechauns?" I will be interested to see if I have any believers ;)

11. Here is what my SpongeBob bulletin board looked like, all covered in Krabby Patties. Our goal was to read 210 books for home reading, and we ended up reading over 450! They did an awesome job! I finally took down SpongeBob to get the board ready for...

12. A Lucky Bunch of Leprechauns! We'll be writing about when we feel lucky and making ourselves into leprechauns! They should turn out cute! I'll post pics when they are done.

And that's my random 12! I'm off to watch SMASH (one of my new fave shows) and try to finish up these reports! Good night everyone!


  1. Your dog is too cute! And I definitely have piles and piles to grade so I feel ya. :)

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  2. Your dog and that Sponge Bob bulletin board are both SO cute. I would love a kid-free day to work on report cards. How wonderful.

    Did you have any believers in Leprechauns today??

    1. Yes, I had many believers! 16 said yes and 6 said no. Maybe because I said a sneaky little leprechaun left a box of Lucky Charms for us to do some graphing ;)

  4. I just awarded you the top ten blogger award….Hop over and see!
