What a week…and it’s only Wednesday
Have you ever had one of those crazy weeks where the gods seem to be working against you? Yeah–that’s been my week so far and it’s only WEDNESDAY!!!
My poor assistant Pam is out with strep–GET WELL SOON PAM!! and has been out all week so far. You don’t realize how much you depend upon them until they’re not there! 😦 Actually, we’ve been managing just fine–the kids and I, we’ve done everything I had planned and even more, so I guess it’s not all that bad! 🙂
I’ve been trying to take some pictures for you this week-but as luck would have it, my batteries are dead and can I find my charger–NO!
It’s only the 3rd day this week and we’ve already had two meeting afterschool at my building and then one I volunteered for (to look over this year’s Golden Apple entries for our district). So that means for the rest of the month, I have 1/2 hour left that I am required to attend in meetings and we’re only on the 4th day of the month!
I am however on top of report cards–only 4 left to do and I still have a whole week and a half left! This time I’m going to do student led conferences–anyone else done these? I hear they’re great and I want to give them a try–any suggestions? I’m going to have a “tour guide” sheet for each student to help them show their families around the classroom and explain what we do in a day, and then I will be there to help and answer any questions. I thought this would be much more powerful for the students and their parents.
Is anyone else attending NSTA in New Orleans this year? I will be there and I see some great Inquiry sessions I can’t wait to attend! 🙂
Got to go now…thanks for letting me vent a little! It’s 8pm and I can get a decent amount of lesson planning done before bed–or maybe just a bath! 🙂
P.S. I’ll try to post tomorrow about our Big Book this week and what we’ve been up to since Monday!
