No pictures in today's post...sorry friends! I just wanted to give a quick update so I feel like an adequate blogger. :)
Since I never know what to blog about, I was thinking about rating some movies. Nick & I watch movies all the time so why not post my opinion of a few, right?! Maybe. We'll see if I get around to that.
I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday! One more week until Halloween festivities at school and home! At school we're having a pumpkin carving contest for all of the different teams. I helped to carve our pumpkin with the other reading teachers today after school. It looks good, but I'm not sure it will win any contests. I will take a picture next week when the pumpkins are on display for student voting!
Also in school news....we had a meeting tonight to explain our reading program to parents. We had invited the parents about 1.5-2 weeks ago. I had 6 parents RSVP 'yes'. (That's a good thing for our school which has little parental involvement!) Tonight, out of the 4 reading teachers at our school.....12 parents showed up! Total. What a bummer! The saddest part was that NONE of my students' parents came. Maybe next year!
If I start rating movies, I need to think of a creative rating system...or at least something I can use every time. I was thinking of just using the grading scale of A/B/C/D/F since I'm a teacher. Not creative, but easy. Any other ideas?
