as in "Kelly, please write a paper between 400-600 words", and mine was always 599, after trimming, cutting, and trimming some more.
That being said, I admit I have a problem, but I am going to try and keep it short today... It IS Spring Break, you know. :)
I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for another Five for Friday...
1 - I have been at HOME with my parents for most of the week. Nothing like coming home to make you feel better about life. :)
(Don't you just love this shirt?? You can get them for any state.. very cool! Just click the picture if you want one AND proceeds go to MS research..Win! Win!)
2 - SLEEP!
Being at home, I've been able to sleep in. No alarm clock = pure bliss!
Weight Watchers is finally working its magic a little bit....errr..maybe I'M finally doing what I'm supposed to...... so I've been doing some shopping. Sadly, I have plenty of clothes in my closet that I can fit BACK into (sad because I shouldn't have grown OUT of them), so I didn't buy too much. But, there is something to be said about new digs!
I know I posted this yesterday, but my wreath makes me happy, AND it's part of what I've done this week, so here it is again. Sorry for the repeat! :/
5 - Creating & Planning
So, even though I haven't TOUCHED my teacher bag all week, I have been tweaking lesson plans and figuring out where we need the most work before our "mock"state test. It's equations, folks... balancing them, determining true & false, matching them to word problems.. you name it. Equations are a weakness :(
After the tears and pulling out most of my hair, I took some of my new cute clip art (thanks Creative Clips!) & made this...
Two centers in ONE. The first one is sorting true & false equations, and the second one is for sorting balanced/equal and unbalance/unequal equation matches.
You can grab at my TpT store by clicking on the picture if you would like :)

*IT'S FREE RIGHT NOW! Until 7:30 Eastern time tonight... Just thought I'd share !
And, speaking of Freebies... it IS Freebie Friday....
So I wanted to share this with you, too... In the spirit of balanced equations, I made some simple matching cards. Just click the picture if you would like them ! :)
Did I keep it shorter this time?? I promise I tried :)
Happy Friday, friends & as always, thanks for stopping by!!
