It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Other Than Reading...
This was a quiet week for me but a busy one at school with award programs, graduation, and track and field days.
There are just four student days this coming week since we have Monday off. I know I'll be spending Monday grading and preparing report cards for the students I won't be seeing any more and the grades that have finished the academic part of their work. Having a four day rotation for some classes and an early out on Friday means that I have seen one of my groups of 4th graders for the last time this year. I will see two of my groups of sixth graders twice next week and the other two groups only once. With the finals schedule at the Middle School/High School, I don't see sixth graders on Friday. I'll be using that day to finish up their report cards. Hopefully all the missing assignments will appear!
I was involved in the K-3 track and field day Friday which started out with misting rain and worked its way to downpour before tapering off. We have a lovely new track and football field with artificial turf so the kids didn't get muddy, just soaked. It was also warm enough that the kids didn't get cold. I came home exhausted and soaked after the games were over.
Next Monday is our final teacher work day of the year. We begin with a breakfast provided by the district and an award program. The teacher of the year will speak. Retirees with speak. Awards will be presented. I'll get one for 20 years in this district. Then the rest of the day will be used to finish report cards and prepare classrooms for summer cleaning. If there is time, I'll be sorting through some file cabinets to get rid of materials I no longer use. I also need to get together with my professional learning team to finish up our work and report our progress.
Then weeks and weeks of no schedule begin. I want no schedule really badly.
