So my life has not really been that blog worthy lately. Even now, I am not sure what to write. I feel responsible to write something down. Life has been busy with work. I guess I can write about that. This past week we had off from school and I spent a good amount of time planning. It felt good to get ahead. We got a new math series this year and it arrived in Sept with tons and tons of stuff that I never had time to look at. With the shift in the curriculum, the kids have a huge gap and we had to spend a lot of time back tracking with fractions and decimals. We also got a new interactive whiteboard which is similar to a smartboard. This past week, I was also able to create some files for math.
I love this new interactive board. It is really engaging and makes math more fun to teach. There are colors and tools. You can make things move around. I was able to make a number line with a slider on it. I have been taking a course once a month to learn how to use new software called ActivInspire. Now I am getting pretty good at it. I had the nerve to ask if I could teach an introductory course to my coworkers and get paid............=) They said yes, bc nobody really knows how to use it and it is hard to learn at first. I have been spending time putting together ideas for that class and making note sheets. The course will run from Feb to June once a month.
I have been doing well with my store at TeacherspayTeachers.com You get paid every quarter. This past quarter I made $1,000 for the first time =) I could not believe it. I have not really had much time to work on it lately. I spent a lot of time over the summer making new items. I am such a perfectionist about it so it takes me a week to make something good enough to sell.
OK, now for the depressing TTC news. Enter at your own risk. I have probably said this too many times already, but I have pretty much given up trying. I am still holding a tiny bit of hope for that ooops I did not even try and look what happened.... Last month was terrible bc I got a YI and could not stand taking the prometrium, so I had a 3 week cycle..........ergh thankfully nothing bad happened bc it was a surprise. This month I took my prometrium so I would at least have a normal 4 week cycle. I am at the point where I am supposed to stop taking it and wait. So CD1 will be here by the end of the week......
