Dr. Seuss Feet, Tongues, and Cats!

Bare with me...it's a long one :)
But in the end, you'll find out about the cat shoes!! So it'll be worth it, right?!

Today was crazy socks day...can you guess which TWO books we read??

p.s....there are 2 different versions apparently. A has a version that is different from the one in my room. I can recite A's book by memory we read it so much, but the book in my classroom did NOT match..hmmm...

We turned one of my Dr. Seuss Centers into a read around the room. They had to find the matching antonym....they love doing read around the room.

And for math, we did some measuring. Why are they all SO eager to measure the teacher's foot - eewww!! lol

Like my M&M socks??? makes me want to bust out in song...I think I will - hehe

ok - let's regroup....lol

And darn it if I don't have any pictures of them measuring their foot with a ruler...got a phone call right then and I missed it all! boo!

But here's a pic of their crazy socks..or mismatched shoes :)

Then, for writing, I read one of my favorite books

and then we made tongue twisters!

hehe...here's mine....and yes, I roasted a roach because our school is a breeding ground it seems...lol!

So, today at our faculty meeting, we were informed that the church down the street from us (who we work with all the time), has raised money and sponsored OUR SCHOOL for this project...

What this program does is give a backpack of food to a student to send home every weekend to help feed that family!! How awesome is that?!!?  They raised $4,000 for our families!!!! That's crazy!! It takes about $150 for each family for the school year, so you can imagine what what we can do with that money for the kids in our school!! That is so exciting!!!

And last, but not least, I was awarded THIS fabulous award!!

Oh wait, I guess that's NOT it...

Yesterday, I got SOOO many questions about THESE shoes!

I bought them many moons ago (ok, like YEARS ago), so I did some research...

HERE  is the site I bought them from (I THINK), thought I don't think I would have actually paid that much for them...my next stop?? Dr. Seuss CHUCKS!

LOOK at all their options now!! I MUST have some!!!

Last night, we were ALL in bed by 8:45, so I didn't get ANY work done on my Gooney Bird stuff, so hopefully tonight, I can finish it...just gotta convince hubs to be my hand model for pictures! lol..Yes, his hands are better than mine since I've been a nail biter since I was 7...and NOTHING works on getting me to quit...I'm really wanting to try hypnosis...but how do I search for one in my area?!?! Any ideas?!!?

Ok, off to get A ready for bed!
Hope y'all had a Terrific Tuesday!

Thanks for sharing! It looks like your kiddos are having lot of fun and are glad you're back (-;

And I just HAVE to laugh about the feet fetish. I had a student one year (a boy) who would beg me to let him look at my feet or touch my feet. I was thoroughly grossed out and really embarrassed. I wear high heels everywhere...because I need height..especially when I was working in middle school...those kids are giant!!

Anywho, I started wearing slippers in the classroom because my feet were such a distraction to him for some reason...it will FOREVER haunt me. I hate to think of that fetish getting worse as he ages...ewwww!

Thanks for the laugh, the cute pics, & the link to the converse store...must get some of those!!

LOL! I loved that commercial and now I need some new shoes! Those are perfect but somehow I don't think they would be considered appropriate at my school. Humpf!

Congrats on your award. Did you get a check? (Sorry I had the Grinch in my head!).
