Yesterday was an unexpected challenging day. It was essentially the wake-up call that we're into the next layer of the end-of-the-year-schedule--children are tired, hot, and ready for a break. Their typical zest was mostly missing and the temperature outside and inside didn't help. I like the rhythm of the our unit study and project work, and now we're mostly done with all of that and there isn't time to start something new since we have so many shorter, but important, events scheduled.
Today, with all this in mind, we'll start with a good meeting. Prioritize the work that's left to do, and leave time for reading, writing, and math practice. Students will rotate from class to class too which will give me a chance to finish portfolios and do end of year clean up with each group. Onward.
