Today is Martin Luther Jr. Day and a day off from school. I have come to the conclusion that all weekends should be three-day weekends. Saturday to get caught up and run errands, Sunday to relax and enjoy, and Monday to prepare for the upcoming week. Especially those of us in careers that take a lot of “at home” work before we are actually ready to go to work!
This weekend I have written my lesson plans for the next three weeks, figured out how to use Do Ink (green screen software), set up Google Classrooms for six classes, prepped for tomorrow’s in-service day, came up with plans to teach Dash and Dot to my second graders, Lego WeDos to the third graders, and author studies for kindergarten and first grades. I did a big grocery shopping, organized the pantry, helped both kids clean their rooms, and managed to eat healthy and stay “on plan” with Weight Watchers. I EVEN managed to go to a yoga class and have brunch with a friend! I’m on fire! I don’t even remember what I did on Saturday! That was all just yesterday and today!
Seriously, all weekends should be three days. Two days just isn’t long enough in the education world. :) Although…. maybe we need a rotating schedule because the kids don’t need three day weekends!
