WOW! Can I just say that changing grades at my age has truly kicked my b^** ( I was not allowed to say that word as a child so I feel a little funny typing it for the world to read! LOL). I forgot how hard first year teaching can be - since it has been 23 years ago! Add to that a little dose of chemo, radiation, hormone therapy, night/day/all the time sweats and you get one tired, mixed up, tuckered out 3rd grade teacher!
Don't get me wrong - I LOVE my new job, but the "ole gray mare just ain't what she used to be"!
So, we are out for Christmas Vacation - let me hear a WHOOP, WHOOP - and my hope is to reconnect with my cyber buddies out there to see what's been happening with you all since school started. I for one have been trapped in a tornado and have been fighting to find my way out. Maybe the second semester will be a tad easier... yeah, right?!
Just for fun - and to remind myself that I CAN be creative (I feel like such a novice right now) - I have remade a few documents that you all have been asking for. So sorry that I haven't responded to ONE SINGLE email, but I did read them. I also apologize that these are Christmas activities and obviously we are no longer in school.... It's a shame I didn't have the forethought to use a widely popular graphics program when I first started making games. Who knew?
