October SLANT BOX sign up are open

The October sign ups for the SLANTbox exchange have opened!  I will admit that I was probably not the best SLANTbox partner this month but I feel like the gals I randomly got paired up with I got to know really well this summer. Please know if you get me for a partnere for the first part of the month I am literally spending HOURS re-matching people it is not until about now that I finally have some time to email, and I already have to send out my gift on WEDNESDAY!!!!

So as I prepare to send out my box to my partner I am thrilled to share with you the theme for the month of OCTOBER.




EDUCATING CAN BE SCARY!!!! 

Ok. If you read my post yesterday you can see that my education life got turned upside down...8th graders are totally scary! The idea behind this months theme is to think of things that make your day to day life less scary. Perhaps it is tea, or a movie. Be creative and help make others lives less scary. (planners are big de-scarifyers!!!!). Please be sensitive to others personal beliefs and ask before you send out Halloween themed goodies. I know it could be super easy to just whip together a goblin and ghost care package, but let's face it not everyone participates in Halloween.

Last month I tried to match people up as best as I could with someone they have not been with already. I also did veteran partners and newbie partners to combat flakey partners.

This month however, due to time. If you do not get me your emails by the correct dates and times I may not be able to help you. I am not trying to be ugly but I am trying to hold on to my sanity.

SO PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARTICIPATION ON THE TAB AT THE TOP OF MY BLOG BEFORE YOU SIGN UP!!!!!!!

ANYWAY.

HERE IS THE SIGN UP!!!!! Same rules there. You have till the 3rd of the month to sign up. You can always use the tab at the top of my blog too. PLEASE tell your friends let's see if we can beat the number that signed up last month. ALSO, EVERYONE who is involved in education is invited to join. I mean that sincerely.

Have fun, See you around the SLANT BOX world!

I need to plan for my 8th graders tomorrow...ugh~

Cheers,
Jameson

      Oh my that sounded bad. I think you know what I am talking about.

      I also noticed that you are "acquaintances" with the other JIvey.

      We are like twins. But not at all.

  5. I completely understand 8th graders being scary! Try teaching 8th grade male reluctant readers who just want to talk about basketball or pass gas in class! Because that's what I dealt with on the daily in middle school last year! URGH! I feel your pain. Shipping out my box tomorrow...just signed up for round 3! :)

    Thanks, Jameson, for putting this together every month. It's a huge undertaking, and I appreciate the time and effort you put into it.
