    15 here, 14 at minimum for me. I have Jury Duty tomorrow. The worst part is that I am supposed to go on a 3 day field trip with my class starting Wednesday. I am hoping they will let me off!

    12 school days. That includes 1 5th grade field trip, 1 honor roll field trip, 1 6th six weeks behavior reward play day, 1 year behavior reward day, 1 spring fling play day, 1 award day, and 1 AR award party day. There are other small things going on, but basically only 6 of those days are teaching days. Which is why I'm pumping the grades in now.

    I have 5 weeks of school left... However, 1 week for state testing, 1 week for finals review (my 6th graders are like JR. high students) and I week is finals.

    So, technically I only have 3 instructional weeks left.

    I know, it's never been this packed at the end of the year. I went to write lesson plans for the rest of the year the other day and just threw my hands in the air and said it was impossible. Instead of my normal table format I wrote a bulletin list for each subject stating what I would get to if I had time. There was no way I could assign things to days. Crazy crazy crazy :crosseyed

    Christy, your schedule sounds as crazy as mine...

    15 days left: 2 field trip days, 1 4-H day, 1 field day, 2 days for Battle of the Books, 1 day for the 5th grade luncheon and graduation practice and 1 graduation day. So there are 7 days where I can possibly teach...but I'm sure someone will try to fill those up with activities, too. Plus, our school is having major construction done over the summer and everything in the room must be packed and wrapped in plastic before May 31st (we won't be allowed back in to the building until August 1st). The administration has given us permission to start packing now to get it all done, so a lot of my class time will be used to get things packed up. Should be a "fun" 3 weeks.

    We have fourteen days left. Ugghh... there are still several lessons that I need to complete this year!!!

    Interruptions include... 5th gr musical (3 dress rehearsals and one performance), a "Character Counts Field Day", 5th grade Recognition, and an all-day field trip to the zoo. We'll be working like crazy the next 14 days even if grades are due in 10 days so that they can be printed and ready for putting in their cumulative files.

    Only 9 more!! However, I am going to have a pizza party next Wednesday. It is kindof a "Hope you have a great summer. Please take all your supplies home today. See you next year! Party." Hopefully, they will stay home the last two official days. Over half did last year.

    I think 16. We have Friday off and Memorial Day. The last day we go to the Rapids water park, there are two plays by various grades coming up. We just had a Cinco de Mayo whole school thing on Friday. Finals are the next to last and last weeks and I have to review with my one middle school class - half of whom are out this week on a class trip. Some of my 5th graders were accepted to a public magnet middle school for next year and they are just beside themselves. I had to ask them not to talk about it at school.

    I'm just desperate to be out. Not the greatest year.

    HOORAY!!!!

    It's almost 3:00, so we now have 8 1/2 days left! That includes an author's assembly, the talent show, track and field day, and bump-up. It'll be a rush to get everything done, but I can't wait to sleep in!

    13 days left, including one class party, one awards day and then hopefully the majority of kids will be absent the last day if I am lucky and I can get all of my paperwork done and my packing done since I get to move back in the building (YEAAAAAAHHHHHH). I can then work on laminating/putting together activities for 3rd grade next year and if the copy machine is working maybe get my first few weeks of copying done.

A teacher asked me today if I would be doing summer school..........I told her no but in my mind was thinking......NO WAY!! I need a break!!!! Hope everyone enjoys these last couple weeks.:)
