Evergreen MIT Class of 2004-2006
Hello out there in live journal land. I am about to embark on the "grading" of my fourth grade students' book reports. Ah, the joy of assessment. Actually, I have realized that I can't really embark on the "grading" as I have left the rubric at school which I haven't actually seen since Wednesday due to inclement weather. Which brings me to the subject at hand.|
June 28th! If we miss two more days of school this year (and Fife has already missed six that we have to make up), we'll be there until July! I was not prepared for this. So how do we keep ourselves and our students engaged and excited when we are bombarded by snow days, early release, LIDs, conventions, conferences, etc? I looked back in my calendar and I haven't spent an entire, uninterrupted week in the classroom since the last week of September! I feel like I'm trying to leave the house, but then I have to go back in because I left the coffee pot on, and then I forgot my keys, and then I remember that I forgot to make my lunch, and then I realize that I forgot to get dressed. And so on and so on, and then I stop and think, "Where was I going anyway?"
Here's wishing you inspiration!
