Well, I have selected two read alouds (Hundred Dresses and Sideways School) and the first literature circle novel, Walk Two Moons. They won't get to choose this time because 1) there are only 7 kids in class, and 2) we'll probably get to see a theater production of Walk Two Moons in Nov. We had Back To School Night last night (didn't get home until 9pm) and I had to go to the dentist in the middle of the day today, yuck, so I got out late today. But I am ready for Monday and the kids. You really have to stake out your private time, leighbball. It is really bad in the long run to be a martyr. I'm going to try not to take on much tutoring this year. I dread it all day when I have it to look forward to.
