More Place Value, CURRENTLY, and .. eek.. lice.

Hey friends!! I'm so excited to be here in OCTOBER linking up with Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade for a Currently! Can you BELIEVE it's October?  Our report cards are due soon! in-sane. Here's what I'm up to on this nice fall evening...

So what else has been up, you ask?  WELL! On Monday, I found out that one of my sweet girls has lice.  She didn't come to school all week but the paranoia has commenced.  Of course at the mere MENTION of lice my head started itching.  Every time I see one of my kids scratch, I cringe! Anyway.. at our school the nurse isn't permitted to do lice checks of whole classes.  Apparently it's a "dignity" thing.. which is bologna.. because anyone can get lice.  So I'm relying on parents to check their kids and make sure.. if they have lice.. to not be sent back without a treatment.  Great.  I've had the heeby jeebies all. stinkin'. week.  And if that wasn't enough, I had two kids go home sick yesterday! SICK.  All. over. the. table. 

On a HAPPY note.  We had our post-assessment on place value the other day and my kiddos ROCKED IT!  I truly, truly, truly believe that hanging these place value posters in my room helped majorly!  Click the images to check them out in my store .. in chevrons or polka dots! :) 



  1. EEEK! I check my head DAILY after getting lice myself my third year teaching (scratching head now...) Sounds like your school need "Nice People Get Nice" pamphlets like we have. It's supposed to make you feel better and keep your dignity. =)

    Happy October!

  2. "Scratch...scratch!" Lice is such a pain! I had a poor child a couple of years ago that had it ALL year long!! It was not a good situation! We had a girl go home this week too. Haven't had the sickness(thank goodness)... I feel for you!! At least tomorrow is Friday!

  4. **Sorry, I messed up my first post. I am so sorry to hear you have lice in your room!!! I'm the same way- just a mention of it and I start itching. It's awful! Glad I found you through the linky!

  5. I read lice and I began scratching. I better read and concentrate on something else. LOL.
    Congrats on having your kiddos do so well on place value!
