Our first two inservice days are in 20 days.... so I'm trying to think of what I want to accomplish in the next three weeks.
I made a list of projects that are in various stages of completion. I have been, for some unknown reason, avoiding the completion of Bonnie Hunter's mystery Easy Street. I have no explanation for avoiding it. It just gets pushed aside. So today I have it laid out on the floor and if I accomplish nothing else today it will be putting the blocks together... oh and to make a peach pie.
Since I cannot get into my classroom until Tuesday as they are scrubbing and waxing the hallways, I am not going to apply too much effort to school work. I want to go in to school so I am immersed in 'the zone'. I concentrate better in there. I also have to go through my classroom library and pull out books that are either too young or never circulate and offer them to other teachers.
I know some of you, or your children, have started school. A former student and her family just recently moved to Indiana and started school yesterday. They have a really interesting calendar... 9 weeks on, two weeks off. I think that would be awesome, but I don't see it happening here.
So to all of you I wish you a pleasant day. Kevin and I are headed out tomorrow to see Erin, Lester, and Eddie (aka "The Baby of the World"). Nana needs some baby love before school starts.
