This fall, I will be working in a fifth grade classroom for my student teaching. Actually, for this first term, I am not really teaching, just helping and observing. I started a couple weeks ago and have been learning so much. I'm already in love with a few of them!
Yesterday, we were talking about different land formations and after talking about lakes and giving the example of Crater Lake, the teacher started talking about Bays. She gave the example of Depot Bay and asked why the city Depot Bay may be named that. She was expecting the answer that it was named that because it was near a Bay, but it turned out a lot funnier.
Teacher: Why do you think the town is called Depot Bay?
Student A: Because it is deep?
Teacher: no....but good thinking. Anyone else?
Student B: Because it is near a Home Depot?
Ha. Because it is near a Home Depot. I love kids!

These things which I am about to list are a special breed of things I love, because they are things I love but do not yet own. There are some movies which have a special place in my heart and soul, but I just haven't justified buying any of them. These movies are ones that I would buy without hesitation if they were around five dollars or so. Please enjoy my recommendations:
