Planning Stages

There is lots of lesson planning and tidying up the house in my future today. 

Cleaning first, then a good long stretch of getting lessons plans together for the start of the school year.

Seems like you are never really done in terms of planning.  There is always a tweak or a refinement to throw into the mix somewhere, to make something more fun or give it more clarity somehow.  I like being able to bring some creativity to bear on a fairly dry topic to make it come alive for the kids.

But never let anyone tell you that teaching isn't work -- it is, even in the summer when you are supposed to be "off."

If I can't get away from planning and thinking about things even  during chemo, imagine what your child's teacher's are doing with their summers, too...

Above is some of the decor in my school library.  Love those stick on wall decals -- so easy!
