Sunday Scoop {02.21.16}


It's been a bit, but I'm linking up with Teaching Trio for Sunday Scoop tonight.
Yeah, it might be an effort to avoid lesson planning, but who's worried about that, right?!?
Sometimes I feel like I can never get caught up. Here’s my to-do list along with a recipe for the only potato salad I am willing to eat! Update: I’ve added a link to a great beginning of the year activity for elementary, middle or high school students that integrates technology.
So, let's review...



3 THINGS I HAVE TO DO
*** I have to do the laundry. My son has informed me that he is out of socks. And my youngest wore a hoodie with no shirt underneath today. So, I guess I've gotta get it done. Does anyone else hate doing laundry?
*** My goal in January was to get my lesson plans done ahead of time. Yeah. That was January. Now it's the end of February and I'm running behind again. I'm gonna blame it on the snow days and the change in Tennessee's standardized testing schedule.
*** My to-do list has had "clean my office" written on the top of it for weeks. I'm really, really, really (maybe not, actually) gonna get it cleaned tonight. Does anyone have any great ideas for how to tackle all those piles of papers that seem to be too important to throw away?

2 THINGS I HOPE TO DO
** I've been working on a new product for about two weeks. Actually two products. One is a freebie! The other one is actually meant to be used at the beginning of the year as a get-to-know-you activity. But since I've been busy with, I don't know, LIFE I haven't gotten it finished. My hope is to get it posted tonight. I'll add the link when I do. (Maybe that will force me to get a move on.)

Ta-da! Here it is! Click on the picture to check it out! 

** I'm also suffering from Netflix withdrawal. So much to do and so little time. SO I really hope I can get a moment to catch up on my shows.

1 THING I AM HAPPY TO DO
* Eat. I mean, who isn't glad to eat? In fact, my amazing husband made some of his delicious BBQ pork ribs for dinner. The weather was warm (although rainy) so he grilled up a big pile. I made potato salad to go with it. That's right! I MADE SOMETHING (and it didn't burn).

Here's a kinda, sorta recipe for the ONLY type of potato salad that I'm willing to eat!

Ingredients:
3 pounds red potatoes (diced and boiled)
5 hard-boiled eggs (I only use the whites)
Red onion (1/2 of a large one diced)
Green onion (1 bunch, chopped)
Hellman's mayonnaise (about 1.5 cups - or enough to make it mushy and delicious)
Sweet relish (about 1/2 a jar - but my hubby always insists on adding more)
Gulden's brown mustard (about 3 Tablespoons full)
Oregano (just shake a bunch in)

Just mix all this stuff up and taste test it. 
Keep it refrigerated, although it tastes pretty darn god even when it's still warm.
My cooking isn't really an exact science...

I'd share the recipe for the rib marinade and homemade BBQ sauce, but there is none. Ha!

  1. Hi Kim. I found your blog on The Teaching Trio Linky. Although my blog name isn't related to S.T.E.M., I teach it too. We were just named the 15th elementary S.T.E.M. school in Georgia last month. You may be interested in our school's video I posted to my Facebook Fan page. I'll include the link below. I look forward to reading about your S.T.E.M experiences.

  2. Hi Kim! I also found your blog through the Teaching Trio links. Laundry is a never-ending battle in my house as well! My husband took care of it today but then I was left to clean the house...I don't know what is worse! Have a great week!

    1. I used FOSS when I taught in Indiana. I liked a lot of the units, but some frustrated me. I don't think I've ever found a curriculum that I 100% love...
