My camera captured the most random images this week. Enjoy!
I have some fun tambourines/percussion instruments in my classroom. Apparently, this one wanted to look just like its one-eyed owner. It broke in the classroom, and the kids though it was absolutely hysterical. First graders are so easily amused!
In yet another moment of classroom excitement, the 528-pound upright piano decided to release one of its base wheel sets. My über strong 5th graders and I guided the injured piano to a nearby corner, where it sits, resting pathetically out of commission. At least it didn't fall flat on top of me this time...you've seen enough X-rays for one week!
"Say hello to my little...pedometer." Accelerometer, to be more accurate. It clips onto my shoe, and uploads all my movement and activity to a health and wellness website in my school district. I sure hope it can keep up with me!
Here is my view of my little 2nd grade friends, peeking from the top of our (at that time) still functioning piano.
