Happy Three Day Weekend!!
I don't even really know why Labor Day IS Labor Day, but I am okay with that!
Our Librarian said to us "Labor Day. The one day a year that we celebrate having a job by not going to it".
For me it will probably still be a work day- just I will get to wear pajamas..
I have plans to write and assessments to create. Thanks Common Core.
Common Core is kicking my butt.
If Common Core were a girl- I would call her Nellie.
Remember Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie?
Then you have permission to scroll to the pictures...(babies).
Anyway- when people who were important were around , she was good as gold. She was dressed in
frills and sashes and everyone just went ga ga over her. She was always right and everyone always took her side.
But, boy, when there weren't any grown ups around and it was just her and those other boys and girls- she was a royal
b@#*h! She pulled hair, stole stuff, pushed kids into the mud, and made every child around her miserable!...
Are you getting the analogy?
important people= govt and admin
frills and sashes= the pretty package that it was originally presented to us in
ga ga= looking at the long term with an idealists attitude
boys and girls= teachers
pulled hair= confused
stole stuff= takes all planning time and THEN some
kids in the mud= our brains
every miserable child= those who went in head first
Some comments were made that it was very similiar to being a first year teacher- I beg to differ.
At least when you are a newbie- there is someone who knows what they are doing.
Some people say if it comes easy, that you aren't doing it right- that you have to put in that first year of reconstructing the curriculum and pacing.
It's going to be okay.
I am going to make it.
I will survive. I will survive. Hey Hey.
On a lighter Non Nellie Note...
I finished my outside display. The little frames for their pictures turned out wonderfully! I "made" a digital paper on ppt then added their pic and a text box with their name and voila! I only had to have them printed and laminated (and they were only 15 cents each...easy is good for me right now)
The pics are glued to clothes pins and the the clothes pins are glued to the laminated construction paper that is glued to the wall.
I also added my Miss Squirrels~
Here comes the squirrel...
It's the best part of my whole display.
nope- none of those....
No matter what I do, it's always in the way- ALWAYS-
I feel like I am saying:
DOn't play with matches kids!
Your work is awesome!
Stop! Drop! and Roll!
I will be stuck with it as long as I am at my school- I am "nested" in on the inside and have no desire to move to a room without fire safety outside the door!!!!
Littlest Little did a great job of videoing the making of chart calendar- guess his mama got a little longwinded- says it's too big to share:( Boo.
Alright well I am off to get the nails done and I am NOT a fortune teller, but I DO see a nap in my future- see ya'll later this weekend:)
