But - it's Saturday and that means I'm just a little late for Doodle Bug's 5 for Friday!
1. Back to School Night
This was the first year that I didn't do a "presentation" at the start of every period. I'm glad that I didn't because it's just too difficult with parents coming in and out the entire time. I just had my power point presentation on auto as I worked my way through parents and answered questions. Here's my instragram pic of my room.
2. Donors Choose
On Friday my Donors Choose materials came! I'm SO HAPPY that I got my project funded and my students can read The Hunger Games in a few weeks. I'm super excited about the possibilities.... what other books are good for Middle School? Percy Jackson? I always try to find series so that I encourage my students to read the remaining books on their own.
3. Baseball Fun
Some of our good friends invited us to the local baseball game Thursday night. It was really good to get out and think of something else besides work! And stay up past 9:30!! My school report time is 7am, so I have to go to bed early if I want to be functional that early!
However, this weekend I get the joy of grading my students work for the first time. I have about 3 assignments for 3 periods and it's a huge stack of work. My math partner wants to send home progress reports for Monday, so that means I gotta get through ALL of it and put it into our online gradebook. Ugh. Fun, fun times.
