Weekly Recap - The Good and the Bad

Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher

How is it only the second week in January? While my students have been better behaved, it feels like we haven't had a day off in months.

Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher

Student Moved - I had a student unexpectedly move. She came in one day and said it was her last day...and it was. I heard nothing from the parents at all, and this is the third child I have of theirs! I hate when their is no real closure with students and their families.

Gassy Mess - We had to have multiple talks this week about students letting me know if they need to go to the bathroom or don't feel well. It's been like a wall of stink in my room. My students and I are so grossed out!

Half-Day PD - I am not going to lie. Our PD this year is worse than usual. It's like they are just throwing things together just to keep us busy. This week was the worst of the bunch. Not only did we get conflicting information from those in charge, but the materials we were given were wrong! I wish they would actually revamp these days and make them useful to us.

Contraction Surgery - Wednesday was a half-day for us. I have a group that doesn't show up on half-days. This week I only had 13 students. I didn't want to go through anything new. Since we are reviewing contractions during phonics, I thought it was a good time to whip out Contraction Surgery. I had everything already copied and the masks ready to go (thank you dollar store). I love this activity but knew not to even bother trying with the entire class, as they could not handle it.
