It's Currently time...
Loving--On Friday, we got our schedule for next school year. We won't know our students until August, but I do know that I will have the group of gifted students that are taking accelerated math...fifth grade math instead of fourth...I hope those guys and girls aren't smarter than me! Besides lunch, I get to fill in the rest of the day...and the pieces fell together so nicely! Love that!
Thinking--I'm sure your end of the year to-do list is as long as mine...as soon as one thing gets checked off another unexpected item pops on!
Wanting--I could use one more week with my students than I currently had...although they are starting to show those oh so fun "I'm ready for summer" behaviors with two and a half weeks left!
Needing--One item on the end of the year list is a first annual Career Day. It is part of Georgia's new College and Career Readiness initiative replacing AYP. This year we teachers are presenting with the hopes of next year getting parents. So I'm technology careers. I have a mobile cart of 15 laptops (the other was already booked), so I have to figure out a 15 minute activity that students can work together on...I have until the 20th to figure it out. Worse case scenario...a PowerPoint! Any ideas???
Summer Bucket List--
1. Relax--I think that is self-explanatory!
2. Interactive Notebooks--Our school is jumping into the interactive note-taking/interactive notebooks in science and social studies...I'm going to explore what is out there but will probably create a bunch myself too (Don't worry, I will share! :)
3. Lego!--Nerd Alert!!--I have gotten into making these big complicated Lego kits...I hope to make another one over the summer.
Thanks for checking in! :) Here's to a smooth end of the year wrap up!
