Do you ever have days when you just aren't prepared for the day of lessons? I've been having those on lots of Mondays. We have also been slacking on Fridays...so I end up having them finish Friday's work on Monday, while I write plans, then I have them each type their own lesson plans which gives them some typing practice.
I own three printers, two are out of ink and the third is not the best printer and it's kind of packed up. So I need to pull that out if I want to print anything. We do a lot of printed worksheets and stuff. And I'm sitting here typing on cafemom instead of getting to work. Today is Veteran's Day so maybe we will just talk about what that means, do a little math and some spelling, and then I will head to work. I also have to leave for work at 11, so I don't intend to get a whole bunch done anyway...but I will leave some reading for them to do this afternoon.
Please just reassure me that it's ok to do it like this. I kind of feel like it's going to be like this until after the holidays. Is that really ok?
ETA: Fridays are a half day! lol. I keep it light, math and spelling and finish up whatever they need to from the rest of the week (usually some history reading or an art project). Thanks for all the input though, I am not stressing over it-we don't have to show much at the end of the year so as long as they are learning I'm good with it. I just don't want to slack so much that they think they never have to do anything lol.
