Today was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. My students were out of control. It was mostly my fault. I did not have a good plan for today. I also realized that my first unit has been pretty useless. I haven’t really taught to the SPI, instead spending way too much time reviewing things they should already know, like adding fractions. I’m pretty sure that’s a 6th grade standard. But I’m going to wrap up the unit and move on, coming back to this later. I need to get out for my own sanity. Start fresh. Tomorrow they can’t keep me down, because at 7:30 pm I am getting on a plane to NEW JERSEY.
