I cannot believe it is already 2013. WOW! I have to admit I have been a slacker and it has been WAAAY too long since I last wrote. Like, I don’t even know how I’ve been spending my time. However, here is 2013 and I am looking forward to this new year!!
Isn’t crazy how much students grow and change over our
short break?! I swear they grow inches when they’re away. It’s as if they save all their growth spurts from August to December and squeeze them into one break!! I loved seeing my 5th graders this morning. They all had on their new clothes and were actually excited about school for a whole five minutes! We had a lot of fun catching up today but were extremely bored by the almighty and nececessary overview of expectations. While I know going over the expectations is important- note, I heard from many students today, “you expect us to write how much??” or “how long do we have to read?”- but does it always have to be so darn boring. Does anyone out there have a great way to beat the boredom and make expectations more fun and exciting? If so, PLEASE help me!!
