After being off all last week, (and having a sub the two days before last week) I got the call yesterday that we are having school on Monday. And we are going ahead with all Halloween plans. Sounds like a complete nightmare to me. I was kind of hoping that we could just skip Halloween and go back Tuesday. But, nooooooo. So I had to go in today (Sunday) to put all the stuff back on every lower shelf in my room which was put up for the storm. Of course they were filthy, so I had to dust. I got out all the party stuff and rearranged the desks, made up goody bags, filled Halloween cups with trinkets, filled Halloween file folders with theme-related worksheets which they will do in the morning, and added to my decorations in the room. It looks adorable - a small bale of hay with scarecrow, fuzzy bats on my white board surrounded by tiny orange lights, spider web strung across BB, ceramic pumpkin with candle inside, etc. We'll do Halloween Mad Libs, too, and play pin the tail on the cat and a ring toss game. The room mom will provide pizza and 3 different Oriental Trading crafts for the afternoon. With a tiny class it feels like putting together a party for my own kids! I do miss the little buggers. I brought home a stack of work to correct. Good thing nobody was there to hear my curses when I saw that the kids had scratched my white board when they had the sub. At least I hope it was the kids. I feel better knowing I can just walk in tomorrow morning and relax and enjoy the fun. How does your day look?
