Almost Friday!

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?

we should refer to the new rating game that we failed at playing to get some rating scale ideas!!!!! haha

Haha - that would probably be a good idea! I liked the other game a lot...what was it called again?
