Five For Friday - Late Again....



I just finished up my 3rd week of summer vacation (I'm not counting as you can tell.).  This only means that it's time to link up with Doodle Bugs for:

Last week I took a Google class in the city where I teach.  The class lasted for three days; each day included a three hour class.  I included these links provided by the instructor that you might want to check out:

I am thoroughly enjoying this book which tells about a dysfunctional family obsessed with getting their inheritance:

I ordered this book on Amazon:

While I was ordering my new Debbie Diller book, I decided to order these Dansko shoes:

As I get older, I'm realizing that I need shoes with support, and I love my one and only pair of Dansko.  In the fall, I'm always wearing shoes like these, and I fell in love with the plaid and the colors!  Plus, they are really comfortable!

Next week I'm taking a class in Boston: Mapping Boston in the American Revolution: http://maps.bpl.org/professional_development


On Monday, the class takes place at the Map Center at the Boston Public Library in the morning; in the afternoon, we're off to the Massachusetts Historical Society.  I'm really looking forward to this class!

Before the class, I have homework:  write the most important information - other than the Declaration of Independence - that  your students need to know about the American Revolution.  YIKES - I'm just happy when they know why July 4th is so important.  Luckily and hopefully, I'll be able to think of something tomorrow!

Happy Summer Weekend!

  1. Your class in Boston sounds really interesting! I bought new LL Bean Mocs last week. They are the shoes I wear almost constantly. I haven't read much for PD this summer yet, but I just ordered a new book too. (The Writing Thief) My 7-year-old daughter is standing beside me and wanted you to know she likes the background of your blog! Have a good week.
