Just got back from seeing the Hunger Games :) Loved it! Of course, any book adds so much detail and you can travel inside the mind of a character and know their thoughts/feelings, etc. but they did a good job presenting it. The only thing that really bothered me was how they portrayed the symbol of the mockingjay. Did anyone else feel this way? A few other things were different in the movie from the book, but that's how it always has been (like my favorite, the Harry Potter series).
What a wonderful 2 1/2 hours of my day though, indeed!
I thinking to myself, "Hmm, I haven't been getting a lot of sales on TPT/Teacher's Notebook lately" but then today when I got home and checked my email, I sold a bunch from TPT :) Very happy about that! I hope to strive to keep my sales going and just go up from here.
Thank you for all your love and support (and feedback!)
Don't forget to check out my Easter Unit since that is coming up :) Click the bunny below and check it out!
I had my staff development day this past Friday, and it was very informative about the Common Core - I am in the middle of creating activities for 2-4th grade based, but it probably won't be done for a while since 1. I want to take my time on it 2. I have no time :-P
My colleague Second Grade is Splendid presented one of the workshops, and she did a fabulous job - I am so grateful to be working with her this year, my first year teaching at my current school. I am SURE you are already following her, but if you aren't, you have to check her blog out and all her ideas on TPT.. she's incredible.
