top, Forever 21
skirt, Calvin Klein outlet
I never thought about pairing this shirt with my trusty pencil skirt, but I like the combination. I think that the black skirt really makes the white embroidery pop. This outfit was chosen after a great deal of thought - I wore it for my math lesson observation. It's always nerve-wracking to have someone observe and rate you! The only thing I didn't think about is that it's kind of hard to squat and talk to groups working on the floor when you're wearing a pencil skirt.
Yesterday I kicked off a "12 Days of Thankfulness" activity for my classroom. One thing I'm thankful for? That the other teachers on my grade level also embraced the idea and are implementing it in their classrooms. We'll be making a gratitude chain, journaling, and writing thank you notes to important people in our lives.
One more thing I'm thankful for ... that fourth-graders aren't too cool or too old to be totally enthralled by scratch n' sniff stickers. ;) Students who scored 100% on a recent math test got a sticker, and it was gratifying to see that they enjoyed that small reward.
What are you thankful for today?
