my favorite

My favorite is the L'oreal extra intense liquid pencil eyeliner. It goes on smoothly, looks more like liquid than a pencil, and stays put all day!

My mom taught me to use orajel to pluck with! I've used it for years. I guess I am a wimp!

don't panic...

I've used the cookbook Don't Panic, Dinners in the freezer with success! I love the cilantro chicken enchiladas, chicken pot pie, and several other dishes. If you google it sometimes people will...

Don't give up!

I'm laughing as I read your post. I met my DH on eharmony. Before I met him, when we were in the "open question" part, his answers were so short that I thought he wasn't interested. I was ready to...

I agree with the others about the shirt...but also warn him to be careful about his background. It looks like he lives with his mom (or grandma!) from the stuff in the background.

saves automatically

That bugs me too. I think that anything you open is now automatically saved. Click on the link that takes you to all your stuff and you will see what you opened already saved in there.

Thanks for the replies...I will try to keep repeating that it takes time to turn them into first graders. :)

mrs. Meacham

Mrs. Meacham's website has downloadable calendar activities for the smartboard. They have lots of math routines (money, tally marks, calendar, tens frames).

chapter book

I read our chapter book while 3-4 kids at a time pack up quietly. The drawback is that I can't double check if they have checked their mailbox until we are about to leave, which can be chaotic if...

differentiated small group reading

I recommend a book like Differentiated Small Group Reading by Tyner or the other reading group book by Jan Allington. They both have different plans to do with kids in different levels and make sure...

This is my first year in first grade (used to be in second). I know to go slow and set up routines in the beginning and establish behavior expectations, but it is taking so much longer than my...

Good for you! You should be proud of yourself! Are you using any podcasts when you run?

I'm so glad you posted this too, because I was looking at the program a few days ago. You may be the...

I'm thinking that maybe I didn't give my command hooks enough time to set before I hung it up. I'm also going to get the hard wall hooks--I've seen them in other classrooms but never knew what they...

Have you asked the child where he sleeps at home? I had a child who fell asleep all the time like that and we discovered he slept on the couch in the living room because there was no where else for...

I agree that it isn't unusual for second graders to have trouble finding just right books. I explain it multiple times in multiply ways but some just have trouble with it. I use a bike visual--going...

shoes on

I read the same blog today! We don't take our shoes off immediately when we come in. I do home visits to my kids and once or twice I've gone to a house where they ask you to take them off, but most...

E-harmony can definitely be frustrating because you don't have control over who you see and who you don't see. After several weeks on E-harmony I was also frustrated with it and had decided not to...

letters book

Last year I used the school paper cutter and wire cutters to chop the spiral notebooks in half horizontally. I used the little books to write letters back and forth with the kids. They loved them!

ziploc vacuum

I am trying this sort of thing for the summer too! I just go the ziploc vacuum bags--I love them! It is cheap (compared to automatic ones), it is just a pump so it doesn't need batteries, and so far...

me too!

I bet we use the same color! Mine is hot cocoa and turns purple too! I usually notice it more on the color that is still in the bottle than on my head. Glad it worked out.
