I Confess…Please Forgive Me

Please forgive me, but here a few (not so little) things I do that I probably shouldn't. I'm linking up with my friend Jennifer from Rowdy in First Grade.

1. I deleted the Count to 100 page that's part of my Smart Board Calendar cause I had seriously had enough of it. Plus, every time I looked around, some of the kids were counting but most were just mumbling. You know how long it took them to notice it was gone? Still waiting... 

2. I use my beautiful Erin Condren lesson planner to write notes to myself. Nothing else, just that.

3. I had the kids keep quiet 2 extra minutes on the carpet the other day cause I wasn't finished gossiping with the French teacher.

4. I almost gave one of my kids a detention the other day cause he was wearing a ball cap of the hockey team that is playing against my team right now. They who shall not be named. Seriously I considered it.

5. I would give anything for all of my kids to be able to read in their bubble space for the 20 minutes that they are supposed to, so the other day I watched and the usual suspects did everything else but read. When it was over, I gave a big, fat gumball to all the kids who had stayed in their bubble. Very sad faces.

6. How many times am I going to have to send someone back to fix their writing cause they forgot one or all of these 3 things? - Uppercase, finger space, punctuation. I'm sure, to them, I sound like a broken record. 

7. Lucky and last # 7 - There was a box of chocolates in the office last week. I discovered them fairly early on, but the ones I wanted were already gone, so I lifted the whole layer up and dipped into the 2nd layer. Bad I know.

There I feel better. Do you have anything to confess? I'd love to read about it.


  1. As fellow Canadians, we all work so hard creating products for a niche market. I'm hoping to host a Canadian specific event to boost all our TPT sales and/or bring traffic to our blogs in the coming months, and so I've created this little survey to see what we're all interested in. Please fill out and share with your followers and friends too please!

  2. Hi, I thought that this new teacher-seller website might interest you. They are based in Canada and offer features that are not found on similar sites. They also have a lot of new features coming. Here is a link: Created by Teachers, Exclusively for Teachers
