Tomorrow is the first day of school. These are the good things that have happened over the past three workdays:
1) I got a new parking spot in the shade.
So I’m hoping things will get better when the kids get here. I should have a good group this year, just a lot of them (over 160 at last count).
Instead of lesson planning last night, I thought I should make some posters because fonts > freaking out.
First my classroom rules:
Three cool things about this 1) I made it using PicMonkey, from the same people that brought you Picnik if you used that back in the day before Google killed it. I haven’t played around a lot with PicMonkey, but I definitely could see myself spending lots of time there. 2) I printed it as an engineering print at Staples for $1.85! Warning: after laminating, the hot glue affected it oddly as you can see in the corners. I was using high-temp glue which I normally don’t use so I don’t know if that was part of the problem. But I’m willing to live with it for $1.85 (that’s including tax, my friend.) 3) Here’s the file.
Then I went to work on Glenn’s 3 Essential Rules of Math Behold:
Then today I went to work on my beginning of school Powerpoint. Do you like memes? Well then, you’ve come to the right place. Enjoy.
