Hall Pass

Today was a bit hectic. I subbed in a dual 1st grade and it was late start. But I got to arrange her class library. I'm a dork I know, but I was excited! Tomorrow is the 100th day for my main school district and I'm subbing! They're 4th grade, but I want to do something in case their teacher doesn't, so I'm scrounging around TpT to save my hiney.

I'm linking up with Reagan for her Hall Pass Linky.

Product....my favorite product has to be my Reading Activities for Any Book.

I love it because it can be used with ANY book, picture or chapter book and is a variety of ideas. And Common Core aligned. It's saved my butt a few times too!

Area I love...well this chick has no classroom. So my fave area at home is my bedroom! I love the color and my decor I did.

This will go in my class some day!


I like to use 1-2-3 eyes on me. Or a clapping rhythm. The class today has a chime and a maraca. Another class I've been in had windchimes. Or turning off the lights to quiet them. I also like "If you can hear me, touch your nose, touch your head, etc."

Sanity: I carry a sweet treat with me. Depending on the school, I've got some buddies' rooms I can go hang in and vent with. And since I'm usually at this one certain school, that happens. Some days after subbing, I just want to go crawl in a corner and hide ahhaa!

Or I hop on Facebook and chat with blog friends. They help keep my sanity!
