What day is it?

Yikes! It's been almost a week since my last post.  Nothing too interesting going on, just school, school and more school.  I haven't seen any friends since my birthday on the 10th which is really sad.  A few of us are thinking of doing a book club, I just have to find the time to read the books and get to a meeting. 

My class of little people numbers 21 and some days I swear they are ganging up on me!  I can seriously imagine them out on the play ground coming up with a plan to make me a little crazy.  I have 4 or 5 that are always busy (this is teacher code for not paying attention or getting anything done.)  5 out of 21 with no severe special needs and only 2 ESL children is pretty good.  I am having fun, but I am going to have to get some balance back into my life.  I feel like all I do is plan, and although I enjoy it, I do have a room full of expensive scrapbooking stuff that is being neglected.  This week has been about assessing the kids to be able to make Math and Reading groups and so that when parents ask questions I can have an intelligent answer.  Parents.  I have met some really nice parents so far.  They are a bit wary of me though as I am new and their babies are probably going home with some interesting stories.  Like how I lose things all over the classroom.  I have forgotten gym time more than once and we've only really done one art project since the start of the year.  I have been suffering with sinus problems for a couple of weeks now and blame it on that.  As I type this I am looking out my kitchen window at the tree in the front yard.  The sun is shining and the leaves are changing colour.  I'd like to be able to go outside to enjoy it, but I have many other things that I need to get done first.  Like figure out how I'm going to get 15 more reading assessments done by Friday.   It's October on Friday already and I want to change my theme to Autumn.  We'll see if I can get it done by then.   
      
We were able to get a few things done on the house last weekend, and I got my garden cleaned up and bulbs planted.  I just hope that everything comes back in the Spring.  I didn't start thinking about school until Sunday afternoon when I realized that I didn't have a plan for Monday.  Honestly, I write down things on paper, but usually end up changing them on the fly.  At the end of the day I just transfer the stuff I didn't get to onto the next day.  Tonight I want to get in my room and get a layout at least started.  We'll see....

  1. Hey Jenny,

    I had a good read through the blog. Very nice to see your house! Are there more pictures posted? I guess I didn't get through the whole thing yet. :)

    Good luck on not going crazy!
