The Home Stretch

The end of the year is coming quick, and this year seems a bit more crazy then usual.  I think it’s because almost everyone is changing classrooms.  That means, on top of giving end of the year tests (language arts, math, writing, and fluency), filling out report cards, completing cums and A1 cards, most of the teachers (including myself) have to take everything down off the walls, pack up all the cupboards, and move to a new classroom.  Plus I need to test my oral language group, which means keeping my entire class occupied while I meet 1 on 1 with each student for about 10 minutes per student.

So there’s a lot to do.  My room is a mess.  Some cupboards are cleared out, others are not.  Most of the stuff that has been cleared out is outside my new classroom, which means later I will have to put those things away.  See, no one can completely move until there new classroom is cleared out, but that teacher can’t completely clear out until that teacher’s new room is cleared out.  Do you see the dilemma?

I couldn’t stay as late as I wanted because our main line is backing up.  So I had to take this morning off to meet the plumber.  Tonight is Sarah’s graduation dinner, so I can’t stay too late tonight.  I guess I can stay until midnight Friday to finish report cards/move.

Things to Do

The end of the year is coming quick.  Things I need to do (in no particular order):

Figure out Club Ape prizes, Fluency, Benchmark L.A., Writing, and Math Test, input benchmark test results, Reflections paper, for my principal, Bulletin Boards for Open House, Writing for Open House, Translate my report cards, Do my cums, Insurance audit papers put together, and make certificates for Gold Rush winners.  Plus, we still have to get ready for Gold Rush, which is on Friday.

Hmmmmm, I think that’s it.  I’m FREAKIN’ OUT!
