Busy. Tired. Completed reading level assessments. Reading and Math tests, finished. Reading results good. Math results suck. Walked around the room monitoring about a million times. Cold weather. Rainy weather. When is Spring Break again? About to go to bed. I went to bed at nine o'clock yesterday. I feel like I could sleep for days.

It seems after the break my class needed some additional time for their brains to readjust to school. They have been extra chatty and a lot less able to comprehend simple instructions. If I say do the page, do the page, do the page...don't then ask me what page. If the directions say to make a simple paragraph, why did most of my class fail a sequencing worksheet about Washington and Lincoln? This always happens about Christmas Break and it always makes me miss the class I had before we left for break.

Back to School

It has been awhile since the last post. We came back to school January 4 and had a teacher workday. Staff Development was on the fifth. Finally we school resumed on Wednesday, January 6. Then the crappy winter of 09-10 continued to inflict drama into everyone's lives and school was canceled due to ice. I normally love a good ice day but we had just had a two week break. I celebrated the day off by sleeping. We had school on Friday and I was amazed at how far behind we were due to the ice day. I am already behind and the new semester just started.
