So I got a bug up my butt today in the form of an idea for planning/organization for next year. It took me about an hour to complete, mainly because I had students to attend to at the same time. I was one tracking horribly though. Especially since I had to have my classroom "parent ready" - which means we cleaned our desks & I cleaned tables. my classroom was looking sharp. mike jones impressible. Right after lunch, our author party started. Parents started showing up. Kids started reading their books. (We've been working hard - blood, sweat, and tears for some - for the last two weeks to get these bare books ready.) Parents looked proud. Pictures were taken. There was about 10 minutes left, when I finally looked at my whiteboard. The date - said June 20, 2007... still. that was great two days ago. Today's the 22nd. I felt like an idiot. If parents noticed, I don't care. Or I can't care, cause it was too late! Nice Jones, nice.
