Really?! REALLY?! That's all there is! Two four day weeks and we're onto summer vacation...or for me...summer employment :) So what I have come to realize in the last month is that...
...I am a horrid blogger when life gets busy!
...I still put sleep ahead of almost everything (blogging, laundry, dishes, vacuuming, etc.)
...the last month of school is a full blown roller coaster ride of emotions
...the last month of school is the least "follow a schedule" month EVER
...the last month of school gets to be very warm in our non-AC building :)
I am a morning person through and through! Passionate about seeing the sunrise :) I used to be able to watch it come up from inside my classroom...those days are gone; not because I arrive later but because it keeps coming up earlier and earlier! I now enjoy the rise during my commute!
I enjoy using the hour and a half I have before students arrive (and an hour+ before most other teachers arrive) to ready the room, organize my desk (which somehow, EVERY DAY faithfully ends up with massive piles and messes!), put yesterday away :) Partner teacher comes in somewhere around my "I've been here for over an hour" mark and laughs because rarely are my desks in straight rows, my tables perfectly cleaned off, or my hair completely dry! I should have pushed my students harder at the beginning to clean up their space and straighten their desks. Like I said, I'm a morning person. Come dismissal time....my fight is minimal and "straighten your desks" isn't on the top of my priority list!
Anyways, all of that to say....I have so cool photos coming...probably after 2 weeks :( I'm staying afloat and I feel as though photo uploading would cause me to sink!
Photos will include Civil War Posters, Field Trip, Dance, Geo Scenes, and maybe a few of my favorites :) Also coming...how I set up my lit circles, why they didn't work, and how I fixed it half way through!
Until then....Happy Teaching!! Soak up every moment of your last two weeks...all too soon you'll send them on and you'll get a new bunch!! Enjoy the bunch you have right now!!!
