Today was a very tiring but great day. I was so happy this morning to play with my task cards that I made. I laminated them with the fabulous personal laminator. I really love that thing, but am out of the laminating sheets. I am hoping that one of my parents brings some in, although the wish fish was one that stayed on the board. Anyway, I cut them out and put them in the containers!
What a great find those were! I found 4 x 6 plastic photo boxes at Micheals and JoAnn Fabrics for less than 2$ each. They are perfect to hold the task cards! I used clear plastic packing tape to tape the objective card on the outside, and the direction card inside the cover. I also posted more of the task card sets to teacherspayteachers.com. I need more plastic photo boxes, but I think that I have a mom who is going to bring them in for me! I am really excited about my common core task cards.
After playing with my task cards I was really busy doing lots of unexciting stuff. Until the late afternoon, when they installed my SmartBoard!! Yay!! I did a little SmartBoard dance in the hallway when they wheeled the stuff down to my room. Sadly, the cords are too short to reach all the way over to where I want them to be permanently, but I have a place to make it work temporarily.
The final part of the awesomeness was that I came home and had the most amazing massage ever. Just what I needed!! My roommate's girlfriend is a massage therapist. She offered me a massage in exchange for me giving my bag of old tennis balls to him to use in his classroom. I would have jsut given them to him, but I jumped at the chance for a massage! Ah.. relaxation!
