Monday thoughts

Happy Monday! I had a fun weekend- I got to see my students perform on Friday in The Nutcracker, attended a friend's Hanukkah party, visited with my mom/sister, and watched the VA Tech/Clemson with friends on Saturday.

{ Christmas preparation}

The hubby and I stopped by Home Depot this weekend to pick up a mini Christmas tree and wreath. How cute is this tree? I am channeling my inner Charlie Brown with this little guy! Since we are traveling to Iceland and Amsterdam in a couple of weeks, we thought it was in our best interest not to get a full-on Christmas tree like usual. This little guy will be much easier to decorate and say good-bye when that day comes.

{ School }

Isn't school just the best on Mondays? Monday is easily my favorite day of the school week, which sounds crazy. But the kids are calm and ready to learn, and I feel like I am on my best teaching game. 

World's longest division problem in the world....according to my eight-year-olds. I plead the fifth.

The kids rocked long division today! During the math centers station, many of them were obsessed with attempting to "break the world record for long division." I'm going to take a wild guess that the above picture does not break that record.... Nice try, third-graders :-)

Christmas coloring worksheet for math facts!

This is my newest freebie that I am OBSESSED with. My kids love anything that involves coloring, and I love anything holiday-oriented. Make sure to download this bad boy, you get two coloring sheets to practice math facts!

{ Pure Barre }

Tonight I did Pure Barre at 7:15. I have decided to start running to my class which is about six blocks away. My husband pointed out that it is such an easy way to add some cardio into my day, plus makes going to class so much more efficient. I ran to class and had to stop several times...clearly I am not in fab cardio shape. My goal is to be able to jog to class nonstop by the end of January! Wish me luck!

On another note.... I have a new outfit for Pure Barre! Beyond Yoga had a great sale during Black Friday and I ordered some sweet new leggings. They are so soft, and I swear I was more flexible wearing them! I am not crazy. If I believe it, it must be true. Right? Anyone??

Hope you had a nice Monday, teachers! The holiday break is right around the corner, we can make it! We are so much stronger than we think!
