Open house is just 2 days away. I will be so glad when it's over. I have all their stuff done, now it's just a matter of putting it where it belongs and tidying up loose ends. I am ready for it to be done and for the kids to take it all home. I am ready to start de-cluttering, throwing away and decrapifying my room. I want to tear it all down, throw stuff away and start fresh for next year. We'll see how motivated I am come Friday morning!
We finally got everything done. Today we did semi self portraits. I say semi because they don't look like the kids. Last year they did, but I don't know why I did differently. I will be doing the same project with another class tomorrow. I hope they turn out well since it is for Open House!
I have 3 more kids to test on DRA and then I am done! I have to grade the math test, figure out math grades and then start on report cards. Yes, it's all coming together now. I haven't really been stressed, but I have just felt like there is a lot on my plate. But, it's getting smaller and smaller as they days go on.
And, on a very bright, yet not surprising note, I am the grade level chair for next year. I have already started my notebook of ideas and have a lot I want to do to help the team be more prepared and ready to kick butt next year. We'll see how it goes!
Well, I need to get up and move. My house is freezing tonight. It was a toasty 60* here today in not-sunny So Cal. Not cool, Mother Nature. Not cool. I want my 85* weather with sun!
