    ...but I can't wait until it's over! My lesson plans include:

    -Making gifts for parents
    -Making 3 class cards (custodian who is retiring, Junior Achievement volunteer, PSA)
    -Finishing Junior Achievement
    -An all-school assembly
    -Classroom holiday party
    -Gingerbread cookie decorating (I have to bake 3 dozen cookies)
    -A presentation from the Dairy Council
    -Preparing for MAP testing, which is the week that we return from break :huh:

    Not to mention I work Monday and Tuesday nights at my 2nd job, which means my week begins with two 14-hour work days.

    Our break begins at 3:20 on Thursday. When does yours begin?

    Today is kinda crazy. It's the kids' last day of classes, so they're in full Christmas mode-- lots of home made goodies for lunches, lots of presents being exchanged, way too much sugar.

    But in classes we're reviewing like crazy for the trimester exams that run through Thursday.

    So I'm in my Christmas sweater, but will teach bell to bell. And I love the excitement in the air!

    We have a full week this week. In my English class, the students will be working to finish up two short writing assignments and one art project (relating to a book they read). Thursday afternoon we'll decorate cookies (I bought pre-made gingerbread men). On Friday, we have an assembly in the morning and then a dance in the afternoon for grades 6 - 8. It's going to be a crazy week, but we'll throw some fun in there as well!
