Huh?! What did you say? Amusing Acronyms Linky Party!

IEP, PLC, PBS, AFL, GLE, CCSS, PBL....the list goes on and on of acronyms!  Sometimes I even have to stop and ask myself...what does that one mean again??  When the hubs has the pleasure of listening to some of my teacher friends and myself talking about school he gets this look on his face when we start in with the acronyms.  He often asks me..."how do you keep it all straight?"  I wonder how many letters of the alphabet I could use with all of the acronyms that we have for school stuff.  I will have to sit down sometime and list them all to find out!  So I got to thinking....I want to make up my own acronym dictionary for a successful school year.  Here is what I have so far....

TLC-Teachers Love Chocolate

SCE-Soda Cures Everything

LED-Laugh Every Day

So...what acronym would you put into the dictionary? 

So my student teacher suggested that I make this a linky here goes....

Here are the rules:

1.  Please leave a link to your blog post about the acronym that you would add to the dictionary of teaching. 

2.  In your blog mention this linky party. 

3.  Go back and comment on the blog before and after yours.  Let's get linky!!

Freebie Friday! Let's Talk Turkey!

I don't know about you but we have really been hitting adding tens.  Well, I combined that skill with the LOVE of turkey (who doesn't have that big, delicious turkey dinner on their minds??) to create this extra practice to see the pattern of adding ten!

Tuesday, November 6, 2012's NOVEMBER?!?!

Yep, sure is.  I can't believe how fast this school year is flying by.  I think the first part flew by thanks to Amber, my student teacher.  I am wondering if the second half will go as quickly!

I am linking up again with Farley for the November Currently....yes...I do realize it is already the 6th!

Seriously though....put a cup of Keurig coffee (Millstone Breakfast fav!) and some Taylor Swift on and it's my biggest stress reliever!
