since I have some time today...

First I would like to thank my students for giving me an early end of the year gift-it comes with kleenex and cold medicine. Yup they gave me the cold that has been going around despite hand washing, hand sanitizer, vitamin c etc. I started to feel icky Sunday. Went to school on Tuesday. Went to school yesterday until I went to the nurse at lunch-took my temp-started calling for a sub. 1 hour later they had found me one and I got to come home. Decided that I didn't want to do the whole lunch search again today so I stayed home from the beginning.
I will be going to school tomorrow though because its Daddy Doughnut day! And because I left my classroom in complete end of the year/trying to organize/mess chaos.

So today I have spent the day worrying about the kids and reading hilarious updates on the classroom activities that I get via text from my classroom para. To start the morning she sent me one that said, "B just told the sub he is creepy!" I laughed out loud at that one. Hilarious! Guess kiddos react differently when they go from having a 20 something woman teacher to a (probably) 60 something male teacher.

I had so much I needed to do today! Yikes! I have fathers day gifts to complete and laminate, testing to do, cleaning/organizing/inventorying to get started. It will have to wait until tomorrow...

I only have 7.5 more days of school! YIKES! It seems like there is so much more to do before then. We have a field trip next week. Kindergarten does a themed day each day of the last full week. Monday is Pajama/movie/popcorn day, Tuesday is Wacky/Summer birthday day, wednesday=fieldtrip to the beach, Thursday is character dress up day and friday is park/library or field day.

After reading blogs for most of the day today I have one question. How do you all have your classrooms all packed up and DONE on the last day?! It is going to take me several days to finish after the last day! And the inventory is a whole different story. I do plan on having the kids continue to help me out-but a 5 year old can only be so helpful.

Anyway. Sorry for all the rambling. I hope to post some pictures soon. I swear I have been taking them.

I was sick my last week too. Not fun! But I did have about 4 out constantly the last week and the last day (1/2 day) only 9 of mine showed up. =) As for packing, I start with my play centers and start about 2 weeks before school is up. I just do a little at a time. It will get finished! Hope you feel better =)

That is one of the reasons why I love my big kids!

Can you borrow a upper grade kid or two to help? We did that at my old school :)

Good luck! Hope you are feeling better!
