Snowpocalypse - Day 2

Wow is all I can see. We are into Day 2 of the Dallas version of the Snowpocalypse. Over a foot of snow in 24 hours.

The kids don't have school today and I am so happy. We are WAY behind on a couple of projects. I love 5th grade. I swear they don't think about how long this stuff will take when they come up with their "cute" ideas. How is it that one Challenge work sheet that took 2 minutes to print can take hours to complete? I can't decide if it's a good thing that they actually grade the thing or not. Our normal level of half-assing (AKA what the child can do by them self) is apparently unacceptable.

Needless to say I am thrilled by the opportunity to catch up. We will be creating a memory game, fraction manipulatives and a PowerPoint lesson on Fractions. We've already made a fractions worksheet and a cross word puzzle. Notice the royal "We". She has done 95% of the work, but at this point it has to be cleaned up and run through the computer so it "looks" like she worked harder on it than she actually did.

I think that we are going to make pizzas with some cheap pizza crusts I got this week for lunch and I'll probably pull out the last of the Rubber Chicken Noodle Soup that I have in the Freezer for dinner if I don't have enough miscellaneous leftovers for the day.

  1. You're a good Mommy! And that Rubber Chicken Noodle Soup sounds good!
    Here in Maine, it's sunny and 43 degrees with hardly any snow left on the ground!
    Freaky weather!
