five for fridayyyyy!

Phew! I haven't blogged in forever...but I happened to log on, during a perfect linky party!! HAPPY FRIDAY! It's 5 for Friday day!

I found a website that seems to be doing good things! It's called, I created a project on there in hopes to get some atlases for my geography class! Have you ever tried to teach US Geography without any atlases? Until October 8, all donations made to the program will be matched by the company! Here's the link to my project: you just have to enter the word INSPIRE on the payment screen.

As most of you know, I'm a first year teacher and I checked off another first this week. I sent my first kid to in school suspension. I swear there had to be a full moon this week at sometime, the kids were abnormally wild and rowdy. One kid just got a little too sassy and upset when I made him work and threw his textbook on the ground, and then slammed my door when he left my room.. That's a big no-no. 

This past week the kiddos and I have been watching the panda cam! Yes, the national government is shut down so the national zoo is shut down and all their cams are turned off. HOWEVER, the Atlanta Zoo isn't closed, and they have their panda cam up and running. Lun Lun, the mommy panda, had twins on July 15, so it's always interesting to watch her with the baby pandas or the baby pandas crawl along! Here's the website if you wanna catch a look:

This is so true! I hate it when the kids come back and ask me that question.  I have the weekly schedule posted on the website, on my board, and all the papers in a missing work folder, so it would be simple for them to do it all themselves and get things turned in, but it never fails I get swarmed with kiddos after they've been gone! I just wanna tell them this sometime. 

My fifth thing is a little personal and it may not be of interest to some of you. However, my professor from college, (Kansas State University) has a missing husband! She was my favorite professor, and I'm not the only one who thinks that. She's so caring and wonderful. She's known all through the campus, everyone loves her classes and tries to take at least one before graduating.  Her husband has been missing since Sept. 2. He was last seen in Manhattan, Kansas but they are unsure where he could be now. They haven't found any big leads yet. They've created a facebook page in hopes to find him alive and healthy! Here's the facebook page:

  1. How did I not know about this, being from Kansas? Huh. I am sorry to hear that and will say a prayer today. Good to find you. I was a first year teacher last year (but I taught in OK last year) and this year we moved back to our hometown and I am a reading tutor in the district, which I hope will lead to teaching position in the near future!
