Gone with the Boom! Boom Learning!

Gone, are the days of the late night scissor fest, cutting endless yards of laminted task cards for students, classroom centers and small groups. Gone, are the weekends around the table, cutting that clear laminate. Gone, are the hours of standing infront of the hot smelly laminator. That terminator of productive after classroom time can’t frustrate me any longer. No more hoping that I have scissors at home, and they haven’t been liberated by the middle schooler. Wow, I should have bought stock in the company that makes scissors. Boom Learning makes days of waiting to use the copier and laminator gone for good! I don’t have … Continue reading Gone with the Boom! Boom Learning!

Is it over yet? When is the last day of school?

Well. It just isn’t fair. I had all these wonderful plans to beach party, bar b que party, pool party. Sleep late, have brunch maybe with a mimosa or two. Shower and dress for my planned activity of the day. And now its over. And it isn’t fair either. My summer days filled with fun and relaxation have passed in the puff of school bus exhaust. Gone are planned days of all the sun and fun-filled days of summer. I can’t pose in my favorite position to watch the afternoon soap, or keep up with who has done what on Facebook. All of those activities are … Continue reading Is it over yet? When is the last day of school?

Clean up on Back to School Aisle

Well isn’t this a fine mess? I repeated a life lesson this past week. I decided to go in Wal-Mart for something I believed was a crucial necessity. I unknowingly walked past the Back to School Aisle and was stunned at the melee that was in full swing. All the shoving, crying, pushing. Cursing under the breath, swearing and threats. This was from the people trying to get on the Back to School Aisle. On the aisle it looked like hand to hand combat was going on combined with WWE crowd shouting and chanting. I began to reverse course after seeing the seriousness of the shoppers … Continue reading Clean up on Back to School Aisle
