A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That!

1.  A little bit of this, a little bit of that...   As I typed the title of this post, the song "Anatevka" from Fiddler on the Roof popped into my head.  Now I can't get it out of my head, but I thought I'd share a photo from when I did the show a couple of years ago,  Yep, I was Golde, the mother of 5 children.  Good memories!

This post is just like that... popping from one topic to another, a little bit of several different topics.  If you're not a fan of musical theatre, relax, I'm done with that topic!

2.  The Linky Party!
Fabulously First

Deb from Fabulously First is having a "Wit and Wisdom" linky.  What advice would you give a teacher just starting out?  

I can barely remember those first few years!  I was totally raw.  Luckily, my college education gave me a strong background in teaching reading, but I didn't get such a strong background in life skills, and really struggled in many ways!  Luckily, my dad's advice has come in handy.  I sure wish I could relive those first few years, knowing what I know now!

But since we learn from our mistakes, I must be quite the teacher now!

3.  I need your advice!

Should I get either of these books?  What do you know about either one?  Which do you recommend?  

4.  The Great Postcard Exchange! I did the Great Postcard Exchange last year, and the kids really loved it!  If you're from one of the states to the right, you may be in luck!  Just click the link below for more information!

7. My latest adventure:  Now you have to promise not to faint over this next piece of information.  Next week I'm going to be helping out my gentleman friend as he teaches kids at a Golf Camp.  Yes, that's right, GOLF camp!  He ended up with more kids than expected, so he's asked me to help out.  Luckily, I know a lot about kids, because I know pretty much nothing about golf! (He'll teach the golf, I'll hand out the snacks and help with crowd control!)

Have a fabulous weekend!


  1. I'd vote for Number Sense Routines. It's great!

  4. Kristen,

    Isn't it a great show! I've done it 3 times. The last time, I was Golde and my daughter was Hodel. Great cast!
