Crazy Hat Day

I am really loving being a grade 5 teacher, and I am looking forward to not changing teaching positions next year (a luxury that I have never experienced in my career thus far). This is a crazy time of year, and fortunately a CRAZY HAT DAY, organized to promote Spring into Reading, loosened me up a little today. I lost sight of demanding schedules, responsibilities and deadlines for a moment and just enjoyed my class. We had a great class community circle (CCC), played a few cooperative games and shared lots of laughs. It was a good day.

Lost Generation

This was played at one of our staff meetings in the fall. I thought it was worth sharing, for anyone who hasn't already stumbled across it.

busy busy busy busy busy busy

There is simply too much going on here, and all of it on top of a regular teaching schedule! I now have the following things on the go: Badminton = coaching 6 teams. Rural China Trip = preparing, organizing for 5 days with 18 Grade 5 students. SEASAC = 4-day Badminton tournament in Singapore. Report Cards = pretty much finished, thank goodness. Adopt-A-Mac = Ongoing ACTION project with grade 5 students.

Life outside of school = pretty much non-existent :) But I'm still a happy camper.
