Brain Fried...

So...today is one of those days that I'm glad I am part of the blogging world....

Remember my plans I had for today on my visual plans??

Yeah...well....

NONE of it happened!!

Today...was a field trip day.

We went to one of my favorite-est stores....

PUBLIX!

You FL and GA people know what I'm talking about...

there is NOTHING like a good Publix grocery store.  

Anywhoskees....

I can NOT believe I'm getting ready to show you this picture....
but FEAST your eyes on THIS!! lol


aw yeah...doesn't that just SCREAM beauty-pageant??? lol

While we were there, we got to ring up at the cash register, watch demonstrations in the meat department, walk through the stock room, watch them prep the produce and then we got to eat pineapple -  and cheese from the deli - yum!!
AND the kids got to decorate a cake!!

Best part?? It was free!

It was only like 1 1/2 hours that we were gone, so I really could have done what was on my plans to do.... but let me tell you.....

My brain was fried.

I was teaching math and TOTALLY gave them the wrong answer...

And at that point...I realized....

That's it.

My brain is fried....I'm sure your brain is fried...

Let's try something new.

So we did.

(I mean...why keep going with a lesson that isn't working??)

I quickly got on my google reader (shhhh!!!) and typed in a "topic" and saw all the wonderful things that everyone has done on that topic, and just kind of quickly came up with something.

It was great.

We wrote in our math journals/notebooks...

they brainstormed and debated...

and I was impressed.

so...

THANK YOU to bloggy-world.

I am indebted to you, once again.

Oh...

P.S...

DON'T FORGET TO GO VOTE TOMORROW!!!!



That's B screaming at you...hehe

I can translate babble.

Love the hairnet! And Publix! The last time I took a trip there, they gave us a fruit tray, a sushi tray, and a cheese tray to sample. That was several years ago, so, I'm sure with today's economy, you're lucky to get a stick of gum!

Baby B, you are too cute for words!

I'm not technology-savvy...what's a google reader?

Sara Soucy said...

Just went to my first Publix this weekend! Lovin the hairnet! And I have definitely searched Google Reader when I'm in need of good ideas - it's way better than an actual Google search!

Lovin' the hair net! I once taught my kids you start ordinal numbers from the top...true story. My brain was friend then, too. I didn't even realize it till the next day. Bad Mrs. Alderson!

I've always heard of Publix from coupon websites, but don't live close to any here in Kansas! Also, I always read blogs from my blogger dashboard...should I be reading them in Google Reader? Is it bad I have NO idea what that is?!

I'm from SC and we have Publix stores here! LOVE them! We have one so close to our school that our Kinder classes have walked. Talk about fun! The hair net is stylish. You really rock it!

Okay - confession time. I have never put together that you could search Reader for ideas! I stalk like a pro and have thought many times about how I could do a topic search, but I don't use the Reader that much. Now I will!

Thanks for helping a tech-challenged teacher!

We went to that publix right outside of Disney while we were in FL!!! Why is that making me so excited?

Tell B that I miss her! I am sure she totally remembers me.
