It's November...where has this year gone?

I don't know about you, but this school year is flying by for me! Maybe it's because I'm so busy this year. I just switched concentrations in my grad program, and I'm actually excited about starting classes again next week. Flipping math is taking a lot of work, but it has definitely been worth it so far!

Here's a peek at my week:

We had Veterans Day off, so I spent it with my favorite veteran! Hubs and I got some stuff done around the house, and I, of course, squeezed in some grading. I'm feeling pretty lucky this fall...hubs is back home, and will be for the foreseeable future. Here's a pic from a pretty special day this spring!

Since we were out today, I'm doing some Veterans Day activities the rest of the week in reading. I'm using this bundle from the fabulous Erin at I'm Lovin Lit. I love that she included fiction, nonfiction, and poetry activities. I'll have to modify the fictional story because I feel like it hits a little too close to home for my military kids, but it will still work out fine.

We are starting geometry this week, and I'm excited about trying some new activities to make it a little more hands on. Wednesday, we will be doing a cut/glue activity with parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. Then on Thursday, students will be building a polygon robot. Pictures coming at the end of the week!

Tuesday and Wednesday are both supposed to be in the low 40s and windy. Friday might rain. So it looks like Thursday might be our only chance to do a Walking Classroom walk unless we walk inside the school.

That's about it for me. Hope everyone has a great week!
