One of those days...

Today was one of those days...

It started out fine. Block 1 was great! We got started early, they worked well, and those kids who are almost never on task we're doing exactly what they were supposed to and doing it quietly. It was a perfect first block!

But then I realized I had misjudged my time and was thinking we ended class at 9:50, like we do on Wednesdays...and so with 7 minutes left I sent my kids into their last rotation in math workshop with only 5 minutes to work, and had no closing.

Then I walked down the hall and saw out the doors how much snow there had been! Ugh.

Block 2 no one wanted to do their silent reading. No one.

Block 3 is my prep and I was able to have someone else help cut some things out so that was good, but then I had to go fill in for another teacher because the teacher who said several times she would do it, called that teacher this morning and said she probably couldn't take her class so I had to.

Lunch started out okay- pawned some birthday cake off on some coworkers but stood there long enough I ate some myself.

Block 6 after lunch, again, no one wanted to do their silent reading.

Block 7 the kids were atrocious! It was like a Friday before a long break. Their talking was incessant.

Block 8 we went to the Elementary Music concert- a MUCH needed break. But again, our entire group of 5th graders was crazy squirrelly.

Got home and almost fell asleep while the girls were playing I was so tired.

Better luck tomorrow, I guess.

  1. I feel your frustration. I teach fifth grade writing and some days do not go so well. Hope tomorrow brings better things.
