Monday Teacher Work Day
On Monday we had the most productive teacher work day I’ve had in a long time. You know how sometimes these can go? There is nothing I hate more in life than unproductive time OR meetings without a purpose. This was not my Monday, oh no! We met and we got stuff done! People collaborated. Thoughts were shared. It was amazing!
...But How is It ALready Friday
And after Monday came Friday. Seriously! That is how fast this week went by. When I sat down to write my newsletter it took me a minute to realize all the things we had done. And that was the end of this week!
3 Day Weekend
Poland is celebrating 100 years of independence on Sunday. 100 years! So we have no school on Monday. This came as a surprise… not the independence but the day off school. I will always accept an extra day off! Who wouldn’t?
These Kids Stamina!
This week my kids could not be satisfied. When reading ended they were upset and wanted more reading time. When writing ended they were upset and wanted more writing time. When math ended… you guessed it! They wanted more math time. I don’t know what happened over the break but these kids came back with stamina like I have never seen in first graders. One day we wrote for almost 40 minutes and they could have kept going! But we were literally out of time. I hope this trend continues because we are going places.
At our school, it is a tradition that elementary parents take the teacher out to dinner. It is a cute little tradition that honors the family vibe of our school. Tonight is my parent dinner and I could not be more excited.
How was your week? Did it fly by like mine?
