I am so thankful for such a wonderful class this year. You all made Teacher Appreciation Week really special with the most thoughtful treats! I've been enjoying reading the cards each student wrote, the flowers (though more of a dried bouquet now!) are still by my desk, and I'm drinking coffee courtesy of all of you! I'm resisting the urge to shop online at Exofficio for some great clothes for my Africa trip until AFTER my boards are over! Thank you so much :)
-My final due date for my year-long National Boards project is May 31. I need to be finished before then, however, to avoid possible uploading traffic and complications. Though I'm mostly done, I still have quite a bit to do. I had planned to be finished at the end of April, however,once a deadline worker always a deadline worker- I guess! I'll will be done soon :)
-Young Author's Day is Wednesday. Students have selected a piece of writing to feature this year and will practice reading today. I know they are in need of volunteers and I encourage you to help. It is a really cool day and amazing to watch kids of all ages sit together and share their written work.
-We are totally wrapped up in our packaging design right now for PBL! Our guest expert last week, Lauren McFerrin gave us a great checklist to follow and was able to "consult" with each toy designer :)
We will settle on a date for the Exhibition this week! Stay tuned!
