    I'm kind of having a bad day today. Truth be told, it has nothing to do with the school or the students. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, briefly thought it was Friday and not Thursday, had a minor medical procedure the other day where I was told to take it easy for the next few days and I have but apparently I didn't fully understand how drained I might feel, yada yada.

    I wanted my students to do a little art project for President's Day. I have some kids that will just mindlessly scribble if they don't have an example, so I used some of my prep to create an example.

    Friends, coloring with broken crayons from the lost crayon box is so incredibly relaxing!

    LOL
    I hope you recover quickly. I hate when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed. It is so hard to shake the mood.

    What a weird coincidence! This has been a super long, stressful week, so for my writing activity of the day yesterday I planned a DIY Valentine Card thing. I made a sample and had a few extra minutes so I decided to decorate it. I used my "varying states of functionality" colored pencils instead of crayons, but you're right, it was surprisingly relaxing!

    I hope you get to feeling better soon. 1x I woke up to a friend pounding on my door. I thought it was Saturday, but it was Friday. I was late to work! It was such a huge school, that an entire wing covered for me. I hate it when days get mixed up!!! lol

    I'm going to try another little art project today.

    Today... um, if I were a better teacher/human being/citizen of the community, I wouldn't actually be at school right now. Things happened this morning that we usually tell the students to stay away from school for 24 hours afterwards.

    But I have conferences coming up and I didn't want to make sub plans.

    I had a room mom show up to volunteer, so I put a good show on for her while she was here and even all the morning, but now...

    Mood wise, I'm all right.

    The things we feel obligated to do as teachers! :) Remember use your sick days. I have so many sick days, I'll never be reimbursed for! :)

    I have a coloring app on my phone that I use frequently, especially on bad days!!
