October Events!

Well, I am breathing a sigh of relief! :) Today was my last day with students until next Tuesday! Tomorrow I have a work day, and I am looking forward to getting some things done in my room, as long as no more meetings spring up unexpectedly. I plan to get grades in, plan some lessons, put in copies, clean out my closet, organize my standards…yada yada yada. You know it will probably not get done, but I can dream.

Every month our school has a character word of the month, and students are nominated for an award based on being an exemplar of this character trait. One faculty or staff member is also awarded every month. Well, I was very surprised Monday when it was announced on the PA that I was selected as the faculty member of the month for the character word Honor/Honesty. Wow! What an honor! They came in and took my photo with my HR class, and gave me a $25 gift certificate to Longhorn Steakhouse, too! :)


We had a great Pink Out Day for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here I am with some of my homeroom students dressed in pink to support the cause.



(My mother passed away in 2008 from Breast cancer, and my sister and my cousin are survivors.)


In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I have made a freebie for you! Stop by my TPT store and download your free Breast Cancer Awareness Bookmarks. :)






After my workday tomorrow, I am fortunate to be able to enjoy a four day weekend, compliments of Christopher Columbus! (Thanks, Chris.) For those of you who have to come up with plans for Columbus Day, or for the Friday before, I have a couple of things in my TPT store you might be able to use. Try out my Columbus Day PowerPoint for some nonfiction reading practice, or a Word Search and Fill in the Blank activity just for fun.

Red Ribbon Week is also Coming! Here are some free activities your school can do:




I also have a door decorating set for 2013 Red Ribbon Week available for sale in my TPT store.


Last of all, but not least of all, Halloween is creeping up on us. Some schools do not celebrate the holiday, but do celebrate with lots of fun Fall activities and festivals. However you celebrate, stop by my TPT store and click on either Halloween or Holidays tab for fun and educational activities to use in the classroom. There are too many for me to list here. :)
