The answer is absolutely NOT! I am not a superstitious person so I really did't believe bad things would happen today and I was right!
Today I received a grant for $999.40!!! $1000 for me to purchase "playaways" for my classroom! Playaways is basically a great book in a little electronic device. With Playaways, students can listen to an audiobook simple and easily. The entire book is loaded on the Playaway unit. I have enough money to buy about 25 Playaways with the corresponding books, along with headphones for each one of my students. Here is a pic of Playaways.
My students were soooooooooooo excited for me! When the giant apple AKA "Apple Annie" opened my door happy screams and cheers filled my classroom!
How was your Friday the 13th?
