The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Sunday Post Meme.
Remember, there are free audiobooks all summer long! Get yours each week before they’re gone!
The week following testing. I don’t know how many times I heard “Why do we even have to come to school anymore? STAAR’s over.” UGH. There is still a research unit as part of your curriculum, that’s why! And a PBL to do!
This was the week of everything. Monday and Wednesday we had yearbook interviews for the upcoming 5th graders, Tuesday night was STEM Nation showcasing all the amazing science-y things happening in the district, and Thursday. Thursday was the GT Showcase. Speaking of which, my GT students had EIGHT days – not eight school days, just eight days total – to put together a project to host at some showcase at our high school. EIGHT DAYS. They were pissed. Their parents were pissed. I was pissed. It was ridiculous. Only I and an 8th grade language arts teacher had students there. The other middle school didn’t even represent.
Friday night was the end of year dance, and yearbook needs $$ to send students to the summer training, so we did photos again to raise some money.
I am so thankful the man is off on weekends for now. I get to see his face more. 🙂
And now for some pictures of that project the man worked on with his dad. As you can see, Baby believes it was built just for her. She now lays next to the grill because she knows good food comes out of it!
