Goal of the week: Lesson plans, baby!
Thought of the day: Sick day... good grief.
I promised myself no more. What I should have promised myself was that I'd have a backup plan to teach when I got sick so I could give the kids something to do that was fun and I could sit down and not have to interact with anyone. That would be a GREAT idea for next year... (must write this town).
Ideas for the practical classroom:
* watch a short movie (20 min) and jigsaw a creative project about it to present to class
* crossword puzzles about different things (they love these)
* learning games?
* educational themed tv shows?
* finish a short activity and then sudoku/game time?
