Monday Musings (on a Tuesday)

I didn't want to post twice in one day because I did an impromptu linky party after a shopping spree with the TpT sale.  So, you get Monday Musings on a Tuesday.  I didn't think you would mind.


You can buy some pretty strange things over here. I think this is because they import a lot of the world's "dollar store" items.  I found these little socks for chair legs - beats those old tennis balls to quiet sound but you'd need waaay too many packages for a classroom!


Clear as mud?  Don't worry if it takes you a minute to figure it out, it took me a minute as well. Boys wear white and girls wear black if they are wearing the traditional clothing.


I think I mentioned spelling mistakes before.  I found this one around the corner from my school. Spotting the errors always manages to make me laugh.


Yes, that is correct.  It says 43.6 liters at 1.72 a liter.  This is in dirhams but it translates to filling up your gas tank for about 20 bucks. This is an advantage in living in an oil-rich country.


This is a local fast food place.  Very local.  The arrow is pointing out one of its finer features, the fly trap, which looks to be directly over the microwave.  No need for a health inspector here!  The sad thing is that I went to this place a few times and never noticed until I shared the picture with a family member in the States.  Now I'll just say ew and move on.

I hope you enjoyed learning some tidbits about life in the UAE.  Leave me a comment so I know I'm not talking to myself every week.  Although I think I'd do that anyway and pretend I was talking to the baby so people wouldn't think I was completely out of my mind.  Is there something you'd like to see for next week's Monday Musings?  An aspect about life in the Sahara you're really curious about?  Let me know and I'll try to answer your questions.

Join Me in the Huge TpT Sale and What's in My Cart Linky

It's a Cyber Monday sale over at TpT until tomorrow!  I'm putting my whole store on sale for 20% off.

300 × 300

It's a great time to pick up some of my newly revised products such as this ABC Letter Font Sort. I've also revised my Kwanzaa books just in time for your Holidays Around the World Units!  And if your needing some help with Parent Teacher Conferences, make sure to check out my Parent Guides to the Common Core and my Parent Sight Word Book.

In the meantime I'm doing my own wishlist shopping.  Here's what's in my cart.  A special thank you to Speech Room News for hosting this linky.  I love to know what others are buying.  It's a little like looking in someone's medicine cabinet. ;)

First let me just say "My name is Susan and I have the beginnings of a teacher creator problem." Maybe I can find a support group?

Teaching in the Tongass - Super cute pioneer clipart that I plan to use for my Historical Fiction Unit.

Doodle Oven - Just found them and their stuff looks so cute!

This is just a small sampling of the things in my cart. I wish I could say I was going to snatch up some more resources for my class but I'm not.  I'm at a "No Worksheet" school - so no copies either! Which is pretty sad because I've had my eye on these for a long time.  Now I might just buy them because they are fairly ingenious and I might use them someday...and I like Cara Carroll's products.

Now, what's in your cart? Anything I absolutely, positively must get before the sale is over?
