Isn't it grand when the day runs like clockwork?
Today was NOT that day.
Maybe I needed to have spent more time over the weekend in my classroom getting lessons and materials ready (I thought I was ready). But I really enjoyed my family, a soccer game, time with my friend on Sunday afternoon and watching some DVRed shows.
Maybe I needed to incorporate more play and fantasy into the day. I mean, they are six and seven. What do they do? Play pretend, and if I'm lucky, they learn something along the way. But I had a schedule. And they were not following it.
Maybe it was the rain and the anticipated indoor recess.
Maybe it was the promise of a short week (only teaching 2 days, then the kids have fall break).
Whatever "It" was, "It" threw my plans out the window by 10:00.
Maybe tomorrow will be a clockwork day...
