most likely my least favorite day of the week since i do have to wake to an alarm clock for the first time since the friday before, but my teaching monday is quite a nice ease into the week. each monday we have late start which means that i don't have my students until 10am, so between 7:30-9:30 we have collaboration meetings, pro d times, and team planning. i am not usually fully awake yet, but it's a good deal for me. i don't have to immediately be "on" and can wrap my head around the week before diving in. i teach for a few hours and then we have lunch. after lunch i teach thirty more minutes before my kiddos are off to music for an hour and a half and then the last thirty minutes of the day i read aloud to them. it's a sweet deal.
today was a bit out of sorts as i am attempting to get organized, but it's been slow. i am using google docs for my lesson plans, observation notes, calendar, etc. i have not gotten all the standard things put into my lesson plan spreadsheets, so when E arrived to do word work i stood there saying in my brain, "oh no! it's word work time and i don't have the new sorts ready for this week." i quickly walked to the computer and made it happen. voila! situation of disaster avoided.
