Hello, sweet friends! I’m linking up again with Doodlebugs for Five for Friday. On Saturday. Again.
This week was a crazy week! I got a new students on Wednesday, and it really turned our class upside down, so I’m taking some time this weekend to make 2 behavior plans. But enough about that. Without any more rambling here are my five randoms.
1. Every day when I sign my morning message like this it feels so weird.
I got married last November, but didn’t really push the name change last year. My AP told me I needed to use my married name this year, so I keep trying to remember to tell people that my name is Mrs. Wilser, but every time I say that I feel like it’s not real. I feel like Mrs. Wilser is really my mother in law. And my poor little nuggets are so confused about my name–some of them still call me by my maiden name (which totally doesn’t bother me), some of them have fused my maiden and married names together—Wilsener, and I have one poor little confused nugget who thinks I’m Ms. Willis.
2. This week we launched our place value unit and we learned about number houses and how each digit has a place on Wednesday. They really seemed to be on the same page with me and when I was walking around during math they seemed spot on. Clearly, I didn’t make it to this little nugget. 😦
4. Today, I ran a 5K with my husband, a friend, and her boyfriend. It was super fun, and I totally PR’d! Average 10:33/mile. Woot, woot!! I was really proud of myself. And I’m also feeling so thankful for the random stranger next to me who pushed me to my PR. There was definitely a moment where I was ready to walk it out for a minute and this guy next to me said “Keep running. You’re pushing me, and we’re going to finish this race together”. That is why I love running. It was really awesome.
5. On our way back from the 5K we stopped at the National Book Festival and I had to buy books for my classroom. I don’t know if you’ve ever read I Stole This Hat, but I literally laughed out loud in the book festival tent while I was reading it. I love the Book Festival! I’m also really jazzed to read the book How Do Dinosaurs Say I’m Mad? It’s a really great book about expressing your feelings, and what to do when you’re angry.
