October Currently

So I'm a little late jumping on the Currently bandwagon (this being my second time participating), but I totally diggin' this idea from Farley! Here's what's happening in my corner of the world:

How I Met Your Mother: LEGEN... wait for it... DARY! Enough said.

This week I dove head-first into a Math Workshop format in my classroom. It was scary. Really scary. But I have a huge range of abilities in my classroom, and I knew it was really in the best interests of the bunnies, so I did it. And it worked!!! Yip Yippee Yippito (book reference? Anyone? Anyone??)
I'll be writing a post about my Math Workshop soon :)

We're doing a book study at work for the book Embedded Formative Assessment. The first meeting is tomorrow. I'm not ready yet. OK, I need to wrap this up pronto!

I crochet hats for kiddos. I just finished making my daughter an owl hat (read about it here), and I found an image of a hippo hat on Pinterest. I am LOVIN' it, and I think it will be my next project.

So on Wednesday morning I put the kiddos in the car and carried two loads of schtuff out to the car, got in, went to turn it on, and..... nothing. I started to panic and was on the verge of crying. Car troubles is probably one of my biggest fears. The hubs works 1+ hour from our house, so he was in no position to help. Thank goodness one of my coworkers lives like 1/2 a mile from my house and after she dropped off her kiddos, swung by my house and got my troops, drove us to daycare (I have two drop offs...) and drove us to work. Surprisingly, we were only 10 minutes late! Turns out my car battery died, but I have no idea how because it's not like I left a light on or anything. My car is only 3 years old too. I pray this never happens again. I don't think I could handle it.

One of my FAVE fall books is Pumpkin Soup! Read all about it here!

Off to do my school work! Night night! :)
