So that was basically me all week, except, unlike Sheldon, I had no one to bring me soup and sing me “soft kitty” and I couldn’t just stay in bed.
Every day I was up and out and at school! I took Buckley’s with me (if you don’t know what that is, be thankful because it’s the worst tasting cough medicine EVER but it works!) I was gargling with salt water multiple times a day to save my voice, and getting lots of rest.
I can’t believe how far my voice went! But I’m tired of it in my classes. I have seen how the students are in their other classes and to have SUCH a change in mine is ridonkulous. I’ve implemented a few things to track behaviour, but so far there has been no improvement. But I shouldn’t really judge – each class had one great day last week and then it was a full moon and Friday the 13th all at once and I just can’t compete with that!
We finally have our carpet which means that we can sit all together for learning and that has helped a lot as well.
In other news, nothing much is going on with my life haha. I honestly just go to school, get it done, come home, plan the next day’s math lesson (I had the rest of the week planned by Monday morning) and then Netflix it until I pass out around 9:30. My cold is getting better though! Just a little cough left over, and those always linger much longer than they should with me.
My plan for the weekend is: be an adult around the house, lesson plan, relax. I have my math lessons almost ready for the whole week, I know what I’m going to cover each day. So that’s the hardest part. I had to change my schedule because silly me thought I could actually teach 25 minutes of science during a 25 minute time slot. Pffftt. That needs to change to an hour. The kids have SO many questions which is amazing and they need more time for writing. Lesson learned. The VP says I can change it but I have to let the parents know. So I have changed my own schedule and will see how this week goes and decide after that.
Hope you all are doing well! If I can get a good system in place for planning I hope to start blogging more. Until then, Saturday morning posts will be the thing!
Miss you all! Love you all!
