    I feel your pain ancient.
    We have 19 left with kids.
    They think they are finished now though because they completed state testing on the 25th. One of them even asked today why they had to come back after the test. Where some of them are concerned they might as well not have been there today because their behavior was terrible.

    25--that means I should have at least 25 more fits and fights! This is one group where there are more I won't miss than those I will.

    19 more days sigh. I know it's not that long, but when the kiddos decide that school is over with, each day is like pulling teeth. One student asked today why we can't just go outside and play now that the BIG test is over.

    Surprisingly, we did manage to cover everything in math and grammar already. I want to get the 3rd grade math and their lesson plans and start that. We'll see.

    23 days left............oh me oh my!
    After the state test...today was WILD! I am just like the students wondering what we do after the test. A veteran teach clued me in, and said just tell them this is stuff they need to know for 6th grade and you are getting ahead of everyone else.
    We shall see how it works out.
    :D

    19, but we have short days every Wed. and one on the last day of school (5 total). We also have a pool party on the Thurs. before we get out so that's another day down. I have a list on my board of everything that has to be finished before the end of the year and my kids are taking things pretty seriously so far. I know that won't last, though...

    YUCK!! I was feeling bad having 48 days left, but you have it worse. I am not to sure how I would feel about year round school... I would like the longer breaks but I am not too sure about having to work over the summer. How long of a summer break do you get?

    25 more days with students. We're on a rotating A/B block schedule, so I'll only see students about 10 more times in class and then once for final exams.

    Our last day with students is June 4th, and our last contracted day is June 5th.
