Monday Motivation

by - October 17, 2022

Well, Fall Break is over, and we're back to school, but I do not feel very refreshed or rejuvenated thanks to having the flu for pretty much the entire week we were out. The silver lining, I guess, is that I didn't have to miss any days of work, other than the one and a half from the week before the break when Alexis was so sick, and I'm not having to worry about getting caught up. The downside, though, is that we did literally nothing other than walking through the annual Scarecrows in the Garden exhibit on the very last day.

So Fall Break was a bummer that I really wish I could do over.

This week my students will be finally finishing their first big writing assignment, as well as working on their final projects for The Westing Game, and we'll be working with prepositional phrases all week. They've got their first-of-the-year writing assessment this week, as well, to gauge where they are skill-wise. They'll take an end-of-the-year assessment, as well, to see how much they've hopefully improved.

Other than that, life is back to normal. I hope. I've got the end of this year mostly mapped out, but I didn't want to devote more time than I already have to that this weekend (the only time I've felt well enough to tackle planning), so I'll devote a good bit of my planning period to that this week.

I also hope to be able to finish putting together the fall-themed posts I've had sitting in my drafts the last several weeks. I had planned on doing those over the break, but we all know how that worked out. Not at all.

Well that's got you caught up on life with me lately. I hope everyone has a great week!
