Weekly Recap - The Good and the Bad

Confessions of a Frazzled Teacher: Check out this Frazzled Teacher's week, in which she highlights the good and bad, so you can feel better about yourself! Along the way, she shares teaching tips.

I'm closer to the end of the school year...only 9 more days! This week brought suspensions for 3 students, testing, and a total overthrow of our schedule!

If you are following my home buying tale, here's your update. The sellers accepted my offer. Now I am trying to find an inspector which is tough because of the holiday, but I only have a couple of days left to get it done.

Testing - We had to finish our end of year testing this week. I was so mad at my students while they were taking their reading test. We had to talk about how it wasn't our best work when we are falling asleep during testing (although the sleeping boy had the biggest jump by far), experiencing a HUGE meltdown, looking around the room instead of at the screen, or clicking any answer just to be done (even after repeated warnings to take his time and try), etc. To say I was disappointed in the results are an understatement.

Olympic Week - I HATE this week! It's during Specials and designed to take the place of our Field Day (which I loved). Every time I picked my students up, I got a long list of dramas that I had to deal with it! It's awful. Yesterday was the worst. Because of issues, I had 2 in tears, 1 in the nurse, and 3 boys that were fighting and ended up with In-School Suspension today. What a nightmare!

Friday - I'm just so glad that it's Friday! We are COMPLETELY done with testing, including make-ups. I had 3 boys in In-School Suspension and 4 absent students. Today was a breeze! I could get used to a class this small!

Book Orders - I may have gotten another box from Scholastic this week. New books make me so happy! I need to stop buying books though, my book obsession is getting a little ridiculous. Still, I'm okay with that!
