Moods

March Slice of Life

I was about to go out the door this morning when my husband told me he loaded the dishwasher.  I reminded him that I started the dishwasher last night.  He was mad because he loaded the dishwasher with dirty dishes this morning.  I told him  I can’t help  you because I need to get to work.  He sarcastically said yea, you have to go in 2 before school starts.  My mood automatically changed.  I turned my back on him and walked out the door.  He truly does not understand what work I need to do.  I love going in early and making copies for my student’s lessons.  It’s very peaceful.  I don’t have stand in line waiting for people to make copies.  There are a couple of teachers in at that time that I chat with.

Once I was on my driveway I felt the warmth of possible spring and some beautiful sound of birds singing.  Thank you birds for changing my mood.

Their, they’re, there

After spending  time grading 5th graders Westward Expansion papers I realized that my students  had no idea which word to use. I gave them a quick worksheet choosing which word was the right word to use. About 5% of each class got a 100%.  They then watched a video to make the connection to the word there. The word here is in that word so use there because it is a place. Their means ours. Their has 2 vowels in it & so does the word our.  They’re is they are. The kids got it. Hopefully it will stick.  A good day.

Friday

Looking forward to a relaxing weekend.  Last week I had report cards to do.  This weekend I will finish planning the end of my writing unit and begin our next writing unit which is fantasy.  We shall see how things go.  I will be decorating the house for Easter. Spring is in the air.

Are current last day of school is June 28th. The original last day was June 13th. Enough is enough.

As of last week our last day of school is Wednesday  June 27. We had a Noreaster today, but fortunately we had an early dismissal. Lunch at 10:45. All of the classes were 30 minutes except for 20 minute special. The snow is supposed to end some time early tomorrow morning. Hopefully we will have a delay.

We had a faculty  meeting  this morning. Our principal came in and told us it was the longest March ever with 6 days off in the past 3 weeks. We are expecting another snow day tomorrow. The predictions on amount of snow are close to a foot. Likely a delay on Thursday since it will snow overnight tonight and last through Thursday morning. It was great celebrating spring at 12:15 this afternoon. One of my students was talking about wearing capris. She`s tired of winter. I think we all are.

A Gift

Our neighbor across the street is a widow and my husband and a neighbor across the street always help to clean up her driveway and her stairs.  When I got home today she called out to me. She wanted to give us some steaks for helping out. I thanked her, but told her it was not necessary. We chatted for a bit asking how she was doing. We both agreed that we are done with winter.
