I was at a district CCSS math training. It was our first official CCSS thing. It went well. I was impressed.
I have to admit I was a little worried how our district was going to "introduce" CCSS. Now I know there is no need for worry. Yay.
But, most importantly - we had an hour for lunch. An hour.
This was fabulous. Normally we have 30 minutes. Well actually 20 minutes by the time we get our kids to the cafeteria. 15 minutes if you have to heat something to eat in the microwave. 10 if you need a potty break.
It actually ends up being about 2 minutes when all is said and done. :D
Anyway, it was a good day.
Don't these look AH.MAZ.ING?!
First of all, I have had a very long standing love affair with salted caramel ANYTHING. Secondly, that 2nd picture looks like the most incredible hot chocolate and must be about 5000 calories!
I've been telling them they really need to get that thing moving in a positive direction so we can hurry up and find out what our prize is.
As if I don't know.
AND as if I don't know it will come when the weather is cool.
AND it will contain chocolate.
A hot chocolate station is definitely in our future. (I would like to call it a hot chocolate bar - but then it should contain baileys, kahlua, amaretto, or something like that - so station it is.)
My plan is to make some fabulous hot chocolate in a crock pot and set up something along these lines:
AND do it at the end of the day because THAT sugar rush is best handled in the comfort of your own home. :D
I made some labels for the anticipated "prize".
I'm sure there is some reason YOU must throw a hot chocolate celebration of your own sometime soon. Click the pic to download a copy of the labels.
If you sip hot chocolate while reading Polar Express is MAY decrease your need to ball your eyes out when you get to the end! :D
Have a fabulous rest of the week teacher peeps!
