My 5th-grade team of 3 feels stuck.
The long winter with little consistency to our schedule due to delays, early dismissals, days off.
Friday orchestra, band and lessons -sort of a wash.
Fitting in a Skype visit for a couple of working parents on World Read Aloud Day for the entire grade.
Meetings and meetings and meetings.
Literacy coaching cycles
Watching and giving feedback on my lesson, observing my conferences.
An educational expert coming to confer with our students.
State mandated mastery test for 5th-grade science.
Report cards due along with comments.
Starting a new unit with book clubs for the first time this year.
Starting a final bend in writing
Daylight savings time- feeling the effects of not enough sleep.
Changing the schedule to minimize the impact on our switches.
Carving out the schedule so the math teacher can complete final assessments for math placement next year.
We keep saying we need to have a positive attitude.
We are working on it.
We will soon be in a better place.
