I am so glad it's the weekend! I know it was only a 4 day work week, but ohmyword, my kiddos were in rare form.
Tuesday was an okay day. We just switched our guided reading groups so I got a group of kiddos I haven't had yet (I have an associate teacher who takes half the class and I take the other half for guided reading). I had some tests to do with my new friends, so I let the others read. Well, in the other guided reading group, one of my kids refused to go to the group. Insisted on standing and not joining the group. He then proceeded to start talking to my kids who were picking out books. I felt like I was in the twilight zone!
Wednesday was okay, but they lost their recess. Here's why:
They are absolutely silent in the morning (for the most part) while they eat their breakfast and do their morning work. Well, we had a big report card fiasco and the principal came in to ask me what ended up happening with them. I'll be darned if my kids didn't start talking to one another and whatnot while the principal was in there! I mean, they weren't being crazy loud or anything, but that's not the point. When I'm talking to an adult, that is not an invitation to do as you please. So, they lost their recess. Now, in all honesty, if they had done well the rest of the morning, I probably would have let them go out. BUT, they didn't. I don't really recall too much of what happened, but needless to say, they got a stern lecture by yours truly and had to put their heads down.
Let's fast forward to Thursday morning. I was talking to someone at the door (same time of morning) and they started acting the same way again! So (you guessed it), they lost recess again. Don't even get me started on my Thursday. It was crazy! I definitely needed a drink when I got home. I was more than ecstatic when the hubby suggested we go to Los Reyes. Yum-O!
Friday was much better and when I spoke to someone at the door, they were quiet! Lesson learned :) After school, I went to happy hour with some coworkers and it was lots of fun and it's always nice to have a chance to talk to some of the adults I work with! Especially some of the ones I never get to see. You know, the ones who don't have rooms near you and you don't have lunch together. I must say, I am totally jealous of those of you who have a duty free lunch! I can only wish...
Last night we watched Never Been Kissed. Oh Michael Vartan...that's all I have to say I'm sure...Then, we got sucked into Law Abiding Citizen. Have you seen this movie? We saw it a while ago and were surprised it was only rated 1.5 stars. It's a really good movie, albeit slightly disturbing. Then today, we used a gift card and saw Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. It was really good and just brought up all of those emotions from 9/11 that I don't think will ever go away.
Hope you're enjoying your weekend. After not going to bed until after midnight last night, I'm pretty tired. Plus, the hubby is watching C-SPAN coverage of the election from today. Yawn. I'd much rather be watching Home Improvement (which was on earlier). LOVE!
