All Ready!!! Well, almost :) and some randomness :)

I will be going into my classroom tomorrow for just a couple tiny, little things to get ready for next week!!! YIPPPPEEEEE!!!

I stayed until around 8 o'clock tonight. :)
I wanted to be able to not go into school this weekend. 

We have taken over the kindergarten schedule for this year and next. The specials are split. For every year, up until this one, we had specials at 12:45-1:45. Sometimes we had only one special or we had a special and then computer lab, so we had only a half hour of prep time. Now I have two days out of the six day cycle where I have a special at 9:45 and then another at 1:45. I know I shouldn't complain when there are teachers out there whose kiddos don't have the opportunity to have specials at all (taught by other teachers), but when you have had a great thing for many is HARD to change. 
I haven't even written my lesson plans yet. 

I will be doing these tomorrow morning.


An update on APPR.
We have finished writing the first part of our SLOs. 
Our whole team worked on them together. After we give the pre-test we work with our principal and set our goals. Right now I am so glad I don't teach middle school or high school. I don't know how they are going to do it. 

How are you doing?


I just found out when I was doing the kiddos bus passes that I live on the same street as two of my firsties. This will certainly be an interesting year!

Have a wonderful day!

Here's to summer...

  3. Our specialty class schedule changed this year, too. We have between one and four (!) specialty classes a day (40 minutes each!) Yikes. There are days when all I do is transport kids!

    Be careful what you wish for!
