I have been testing all week, and I have no revolutionary teaching ideas to tell you about. But, today I ran across an awesome linky that will help highlight the month! I am linking up with Katie at Teacher to the Core for her High/Low Linky!
I will start off with my
Teachers Notebook shop. I was hesitant to do it, but I have really enjoyed using it. And I have even made more than enough sales to pay to use the site! Can't beat that! Plus, they are having a huge sale, like Teachers Pay Teachers (where I will offer 20% off) for Super Bowl Sunday AND Monday! I am going to offer 25% off of everything I have in there so far!
Design by Christi is the way to go!
Now for the low!
First, my van did not pass inspection and had to have a major part replaced. Luckily, the mechanic down the street could fix it for a tenth of the price of the dealership! I have learned to go slowly up my babysitter's mountain road and driveway!
Next, our microwave died in the middle of cooking supper! I cook on Sunday and reheat throughout the week. In the week and a half that we did not have a microwave, I learned that heating up in the oven or on the stove makes the food taste soooo much better! And it really doesn't take any longer.
Then, last night I was plugging my laptop in, and the adapter inside the computer broke. The pin just went kaput! As I googled how to fix it, I started to get worried that it would cost more than my barely used laptop. BUT, I remembered that today was the day that our IT guy would be at school. Yay! I took the laptop to him, and he dismantled it! When he did, he found it would be super easy to fix. He looked on ebay for the part, purchased it for $4 and said he would be able to fix it next Wednesday!!! Yay! I am so ecstatic that it would be a fairly easy fix, though I would not even know where to start.
Here he is in his makeshift office in the hallway outside my room. We hooked him up with some goods!

Until next time!
