Weekly Wisdom + Life Lately

by - May 21, 2023

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted. It's been a bit of a rough patch the last two weeks. First, Alexis got sick, and then my allergies and sinuses kicked into overdrive and triggered a full-blown migraine that resulted in me having to leave work early. Alexis had a special water day at school as well as her last Honor's Day. My school had its final honors day, which was a crazy day all on its own. There was also Mother's Day weekend and this weekend was Alexis's gymnastics show.

Alexis did really well at her show, despite not feeling well. She's improved a lot over the last year, and we're very proud of how far she's come as well as for sticking it out even though it was a tough day.

We've officially got two-and-a-half days of school with students left. The last several weeks, my students have been working on a final project. They created newsletters highlighting four of their most memorable experiences from this school year. I can't share any photos because our school's media policy, but once it gets approved I'll share the school's post to my Facebook page.

In other news, I made one final bulletin board update for the end of the year.

I wanted to display some of my students' blackout poetry that we did as a collaborative library activity at the end of our poetry unit. They all did remarkable jobs with this fun project, but there was no way I could keep and display 70 projects, so I picked a few of my favorites from each class and had them laminated. For now, they're clothes-pinned to my bulletin board, but I think I'm going to do something a little more permanent with them so I can display them year-round.

Our last activity for the year is reading the original Jumanji picture book and then watching the 90s movie. Then, when the kids leave I'll have the rest of the week to pack up my classroom, although that shouldn't take that long.

That's gonna do it for me for now. I promise I'll have some new posts for you this week. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
