I’ve been SOOO busy the last several weeks. Ugh. School is back in session.
the students are great, and it is so nice seeing them again. They are SOOOO stressed and distracted!!! For good reason, I guess. Big cloud of uncertainty hanging over every day of class. Lots of kids not handling the pressure well.
I am making sure I’m meeting them where they are, emotionally, and bringing them along. Modifying instruction and my schedule of curricular materials to accommodate their new speed. They can’t handle too much too quickly anymore.
Gotta slow it down sometimes, give them another chance to understand the concept rather than making them take a bad test grade.
Showing some understanding, and some fun inspirational dance music doesn’t hurt either!!
Thankfully, there is bourbon, beer, tacos, and doughnuts for us teachers to get us through the teaching and extensive planning this year.
I just hope I get a chance to wear a dress in public again before the snow flies!!! I don’t have any free time anymore!
it’s good to catch up with you ladies in the evenings, though. Be well my lovelies!!
