It's Summertime!Monday, May 25, 2009
Memorial Day weekend usually marks the beginning of summer for most and as far as I am concerned it does for me too even though I have one and a half days of school to get through. My classroom is pretty much packed and the grades are done. I am not really sure what the point of making up these snow days are...I hate saying that I am just bullshiting to get through the day but my kids are about as interested as I am in being at school tomorrow and Wednesday. We do have some fun things planned though, we're celebrating Memorial Day tomorrow because it does tie in with my Civil War unit so it is really nice timing and it keeps the day focused on academics not wearing my patience down to its' last thread. On Wednesday we are doing a tug o'war, karoke, and yearbook signing....pretty much the day will be spent outside, I have already made a sacrifice to the weather gods because if I have to deal with 125 8th graders indoors on the last day of school I may need medication!
