Over the Top

The past week has flown by...

--Em was diagnosed with a virile infection. However, the doctor didn't prescribe antibiotics, she just recommended keeping Em out of school for an extra day. Thus Em and I stayed home both last Monday and last Tuesday. She was feeling better by mid-morning on Tuesday and was running around, jumping off the furniture....totally could've gone to school as she didn't have a fever anymore. Oh well. I was able to get some house cleaning done in between games of Old Maid and Candyland.

--My class sizes are finally leveled! In fact, my huge class of 29, is now my smallest at only 15! (The other half were given to our new Read180 teacher. Yay!) Now I'm working on reeling in the behavior and changing the habits my students developed by having too large a group. YES, I expect you to use the computer software EVERYday now that we have a reasonable student to computer ratio. Sheesh.

--Nothing else new at work or home...

--The sweet and wonderful Mrs. Gamgee over at Hobbit-ish Thoughts and Ramblings honored me with the "Over the Top" award this week. This fun meme helped put my brain in focus mode, as it was difficult to provide only one-word responses.



Here are the rules for the Over The Top Award:
USE ONLY ONE WORD! It’s not as easy as you might think. Copy and change the answers to suit yourself and pass it on. It’s really hard to use only one-word answers so try your best!
(And I agree with Mrs. Gamgee---parenthetical input does NOT count towards the word count! Smiles.)
