The Final Monday!

Yes indeedy, today was our final Monday of classes in the 2009-2010 school year. Of course, that is because we have a holiday next Monday -- Memorial Day. We unfortunately still have TWO more Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and for us teachers, Fridays.

But they should just fly right by! (insert choruses of "Yeah, right.") Tomorrow is Career Day -- which my kids see on the calendar and pronounce as one who cars -- a carrer. Wednesday is Field Day, at least the latter half of the day is. Next week is an awards day.

I was incorrect about one of my comments on the last post. I did not have 3 kids who scored a perfect 100 on their math tests. Those 3 actually missed one. Always hard to tell when the scaled score is out of like 832, and it's not liner, so each question doesn't count for the same amount of points. Oh, and apparently one only needed a 58 or so to pass the reading test this year. Wow.

We will spend a lot of our class time this week decorating our hallway for the International Festival on Friday. My kids have made hockey players (for Canada) and palace guards and bobbies for England. Currently, we're working on bulls for Spain. I showed one class a video on youtube of the running of the bulls, and they laughed and laughed whenever someone got trampled or flipped by a bull. Kids these days.

Still, as little time as we have left, I find myself jealous of teachers who are already out...

That sounds like a fun way to end the year.

We are finished too--only three more "teacher hours" tomorrow morning left!! The end has been tough--all of third and fourth grades are switching classrooms. I will begin my seventeenth year in a portable classroom after being in a really big in-the-building room for fifteen years.

I love the festival of nations idea. We do Field Day and Awards Day by grade level, but no big school-wide event. Until this year, we've had a third grade talent show on the last full day. It has always been such fun, but this year's kids are just evil, so we didn't do it. Enjoy the last few days, and then (cue Alice Cooper) SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!

Sounds like a fun way for students to end the year. Hope your last few days FLY by!
