Regardless of being sick or not, I’m having a ton of fun teaching. I’m not accomplishing nearly all that I want to, but we’re still cranking along pretty well. This week we started teaching our WWI unit that incorporates literacy and Common Core State Standards. I think it’s going really well. The kids are understanding the cause of WWI, are engaged and learning new vocabulary that falls into the Tier 3 range. We’ll see how they do with their first summative assessment on Friday.
Otherwise, I’m plugging along and looking forward to a two-week break over the holidays. It’s really beginning to dawn on me how hard I’ve worked in the classroom. I’m worn out.
I also need to start exercising. I’m hoping tomorrow I can start running again without coughing up a lung. I’m over a week of not working out, but I’m also letting the body heal. I’m still coughing up a storm and don’t need that headache while exercising.
Until Next Time,
