I don't know about you, but I am kinda sick of the election and all the attack ads. I am ready for this election to be over and done with. But that said, I am looking forward to having Tuesday off. I plan to sleep in, go vote, come home and bake chocolate dump cake and make chili for our staff social on Wednesday.
I am heartbroken watching all this coverage of the damage to NY and NJ that Hurricane Sandy caused. My heart goes out to everyone affected, but most of all to my fellow teachers who have to do double duty getting their personal affairs in order, and will have to face their classrooms and schools that have been damaged, plus be a rock for their students who have been through this horrible tragedy. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers and if you can, donate to the Red Cross relief efforts.
I admit it, I am addicted to sweet stuff. And despite the fact that I had access to tons of Halloween candy this week, I really did not eat a whole lot of it. Now, I wish i had a big bowl of Reese's cups because I am craving something sweet to go with my coffee. What I really want is a piece of iced lemon pound cake or a raspberry bar fro Starbucks. Maybe I can convince my hubby to run through the drive-through while he is out patrolling the city today (he's a policeman and on duty today).
Have you see this video? I used it as an activating strategy for my lesson on the presidential election this week. My students LOVED it, and begged me to play it over and over again this week. I have a feeling that I will be playing it more next week too. I am a little obsessed with Ron Clark and RCA right now....and have been every since I heard him speak a few weeks ago. What? You didn't know I went to see Ron Clark? Or that I got my picture taken with him? Check it all out in my post HERE.
