Unplanned Busy Day

Hi all,

I had intended to do so much on my computer and blog today.  None of it happened.

First of all, I was completely honored to do a guest post today at Learning is Something to Treasure.  Head over there to get some ideas on keeping students engaged and getting multiple responses.  I think I came up with quite a list, and if you have other ideas, please comment and share!

So what happened to throw  me off today?  I had intended to go into the school to laminate about 45 pages of common core I can statements.  While I was there, I decided to try and print the vocabulary cards I've been working on all summer.  Great idea.  Poor execution.  I got the verbs to print just fine.  Nothing else would print.  I tried 3 different printers and reset them in many ways.  I finally gave up in defeat.  Thankfully, my principal let me go to Fed Ex.  So they'll be printed by tomorrow.

I laminated the verbs that printed, and worked on some other various computer issues.  I put magnets on the back of my common core posters from Deanna Jump so they can hang on my white board.  Here's one of them.
The "math" page is inside a sheet protector.  I'll slide the smaller standard I Can statements in as needed. 
I left the school around 5:30...I arrived shortly after 10:00.  I decided it was time to invest in a paper cutter, so I went to Michaels and bought one.  I spent much of the night cutting out the above I can statements.  My cat helped too....she helped me decide it was time to quit since I couldn't get to the rest of my pile.
My cat "helping" me with my newly laminated cards.

I'm hoping to get the vocabulary cards all finished and up on tpt in the next couple of days.  Please drop by and read my guest post over on Learning is Something to Treasure and while you're at it, enter to win her 650 follower give away.
