Best and Worst of My Week

Student Quotes–                                                                                                                                    Best:                                                                                                                                             Me- “Why is it important to keep your eyes on the words, when your partner is reading?”

Adorable, 3rd Grade, ELL(English Language Learner) student- “It is important that you keep your eyes on the words so you can be focused and you are not subtracted when you read.”

Me- “Yes! Great thinking! Good readers stay focused and make sure that they are not  DIS-TRACT-ED when they read!”

Adorable, 3rd Grade, ELL(English Language Learner) Student- “Lots of kids, back in Ms. M’s class, are subtracted when they read.”

Worst:                                                                                                                                             Me-(Picking up students from their classroom, to bring down to the reading lab for intervention.  The other reading specialist is with me, collecting her students too.)

Bright, 3rd Grade Student- “D., L., and A. aren’t here today.”

Me- “Oh no! We are missing a lot of our reading friends today.”

Bright, 3rd Grade Student- “Ya, but it is because they all have lice!”

Event–                                                                                                                                                         Best:                                                                                                                                                           Celebrating my daughter’s 22nd birthday!

Tessa is 22!

Tessa is 22!

Worst:                                                                                                                                                                 Towing Tessa’s car from her rental to our place, so we can have our trusted mechanic put  a new starter in it:/

Outing–                                                                                                                                                            Best:                                                                                                                                          Jason and I took my Dad to the Phoenix Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks hockey game.  It was the most exciting game I have ever seen live!

Worst:                                                                                                                                                         Going to Target to fill 3 prescriptions for Jason’s bronchial infection and they don’t have the medicine in stock.

Best Example of turning Lemons into Lemonade:                                                                   It was going to take over an hour for the tow truck to get to Tessa’s car and we had to be there to meet him.  Her rental is less than a mile from REI.  We spent a wonderful hour looking at our favorite store!  Jason even found a perfect phone holder for his new bike!
