I just need...

something blue, and my collection will be complete. Teaching is a lot like getting married (you know, you take the good you take the bad you take it all and there you have...the facts of teaching). Before anyone can ever get married, they must have the something old, new, borrowed and blue.

In my teaching career, I have collected all but the last. I borrow things all the time (and most of the time return them). The something old and new came to me today. I walked through the workroom to spy...what!? SRA's?! The little boxes of stories that my super awesome third grade teacher USED WITH US!? Progress anyone? This leaves me well...skeptical and a little bothered that I know how to use these BECAUSE I HAVE AS A STUDENT! Of course, these aren't the exact same ones we used (I'm sure they have long since fallen apart and been discarded). So there's the new. I'm sure it will be great.
P.S. If Skeptical Cat made you laugh, you should check out The Cornerstone blog. She has a lot of management type things, but the LOLcat skool is my favorite.
