Feels Like a Monday!---and a freebie!

How do you know it's a Monday?
A student comes in tardy at 9:00 (we have a 7:30 start time) carrying a McDonald's breakfast.
That resulted in a grape jelly clean up around 9:20.

My stomach was growling at 10 for lunch because I ate so much over the weekend. (plus the McDonalds aroma entered my room)

Students are a little too quiet during their morning work...they might be asleep.

I keep having that urge to check my blog and email because I am still on weekend mode.

I am ready to watch The Bachelor!!!

One of my firsties actually asked Mr. Marc (on Adventure to fitness) why we had to go into fast mode...In a whiny voice....expecting an answer...And I secretly thanked Mr. Marc for not answering her...then I gave him a wink as he outran the crocodiles, or the greek gods, or Mr. Laze...Oh, I guess THAT WAS WHY why we were in FAST mode huh?!

  2. I love your "you know it a Monday" list....I could add a few to those....and I had the consistently late student too!! Gotta love it! Not! Not a good way to start the day in Mrs. Eiken's room....

    Ok, where are you???? Why haven't I heard from you? :(

  3. I knew it was Monday when the blue jello spilled all over the backseat of the car...quick stop in highway traffic!

    Thanks for the number activities! :-)

  4. Love you and all of your products on TPT! I will definitely be checking them out. It's sad that I get as excited about products on TPT as I do about shoes or clothes. HA! :) A little sickening, I suppose!

    I totally hear ya about it "feeling like a Monday." My goal was to get to school extra early this morning, but instead I just kept hitting that darn snooze button! :)

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Reagan:
    I guess it should be: They are STILL arriving late on Monday... I have one kiddo on her 20th tardy today. At my site, I seem to be the only one who cares about such things. Glad to know you and Tara can relate!

    Glad The Bachelor is on tonight. I never even watched it until I started reading Kristin's synopses.

    Whoa! Synopses. Irregular plural. That's the biggest word I used in February.

    The six boxes of Girl Scout cookies must have eaten away at my brain!

  6. Late with McDonald's!! REALLY?? That would irk me so much.

    SO excited for the sale! Loaded up my cart every night so far...!

    Happy Monday!

  7. WHAT they came in with Mickey Dees and they didn't bring you any!!! My kiddos know better than that... Actually the secretary is one of my besties and she would probably tell them to eat it in the office or go get Mrs. Farley a cranberry grape slushy (from Sonic down the road).... she also tells them that when they pick up their kids early...yes I need treats... or bribes!!!

  8. Coming in 1 1/2 late and with McDonald's. That's just cruel!!!!


  9. I for sure had a Monday, except my class was definitely NOT still asleep!!!

    Marvelous Multiagers!

  10. My kids are NEVER asleep on a Monday after a week off - but they were today. Thank you, thank you!!!!I downloaded your leapy freebie and thank you for it!!!!!!!!

  11. I have to watch the Bachelor, just so I can follow Kristin's rantings! I mean they are funny, even if you don't watch the show... but more understandable if you do. Never thought I'd look forward to the Bachelor.

    Geesh... we don't start until 8:45... or 8:47 actually. I think I would cry if I had to let a kid eat a McDonalds breakfast in my room... especially if I was hungry!

    It was DEFINITELY a Monday today.

  15. Thanks for sharing the Math freebie- love it! And if I get ambitious, maybe I'll manage to print and laminate it before Thursday;-) As for late Firsties- I had one come in at 11:30 last week. She had to get her picture taken with her brother and the Easter bunny at his school, then go to Atlanta Bread for lunch. Hmph- didn't even bring me a cookie of coffee!

  16. My partner and i still cannot quite believe that I could become one of those studying the important points found on your site. My family and I are really thankful on your generosity and for providing me opportunity pursue the chosen career path. Thanks บาคาร่าออนไลน์ for the important information I managed to get from your website.
