I have not blogged for real in what seems like forever. I just don't seem to have ANY extra time. I'm going crazy.
So much has happened!
First: I only have 12.5 more days. I am very jealous of all of you who are done this week. My kids brains have checked out already for sure and I'm very close to losing my mind.
Second: I got class pets. Yes I did. We are now the proud owner of two hermit crabs. The students named them Poptart and Spiderman. I may have rigged their voting after they came up with the list of names. I just couldn't have crabs named Money and Crystal-call me whatever you would like I couldn't deal with that.
Third: I learned that the BEST way to get my students to be still and quiet is to tell them to lay on their stomachs in a circle and put the crabs in the middle. If the kids move or get loud the crabs don't come out. Works like a charm every time! I love it!
Fourth: The words "end of the year checklist" are terrible. They include stress, loss of sleep and many extra hours.
Fifth: I got student 25. ugh. That is TOO many!
I have been keeping up on blogs just not writing. I read them on my phone now-FANTASTIC! But it's harder to write posts on there.
I hope to have some news to share with you all in the next month. But for now I just have to make you wait-mostly because I don't really have the information yet. All I can say is that my fingers and toes are crossed.
In packing up my stuff (which I started today) I am VERY excited to try a new method of organization. I just hope it works for me.
Enjoy these last days of school. I have a feeling that on that last day my car ride home will make it necessary for me to wear sunglasses the rest of the day.
Have a great 3 day weekend all of you who are still in school!
