And.. here is my Five for Friday, I have linked up with Doodle Bugs Teaching who hosts this great linky!Click on the image to head to her blog and see all the other folks who have linked up.
# 1This was me on Sunday, and then Monday, and Tuesday, and Wednesday; even though I only felt a little better I dragged myself into work on Wednesday. Made it through the day with the kids but could not last through the 3 hour professional development time. I went home, fell asleep and feel better today. Have any of you gotten sick yet this year? I fear it because I got really sick last year and missed 5 days :( of work and some people (not saying who..) complained to the administration about my absences. I was so upset, I felt bad enough missing days and feeling so sick... I was almost in tears in the office discussing it and asking why a sick teacher cannot stay home and get better.
#2 The Massachusetts teacher evaluation system.. it has totally changed and is very complex although it is better than it was before. I was busy reading pp. 1-65 of a packet of info about it last night. I am still confused about a bunch of things. Eek!
#3 It wouldn't be a 5 for Friday without.... a pic of the pooch. Here's one from the other day. It's hard to be a big dog. Doesn't his head look ginormous?
#4 I was cat sitting this week too and I brought some papers to correct. Here is Jack attempting to prevent me from correcting and pay attention to him.
#5 Hopefully tomorrow I (and the class) will be done will all of the back to school tests and assessments - DIBELS, MAZE, 4 part math test, writing prompt... thank goodness. Sigh of relief! How long did it take you to finish all the beginning of year assessments with your class?
Have a relaxing weekend everyone!
