Terrible Blogger

I feel like I've been a terrible blogger lately!  These have been the craziest few weeks ever.  In a span of about 2-3 weeks I've had to write 10 IEP's, go to 10 CSE meetings, set up and attend 3 parent meetings, write 40 progress notes, fill out forms for my midyear evaluation, and do a write up about how my yearly goal is progressing.  Throw 2 grad classes, an observation, and tenure paperwork (including compiling a 3 year portfolio) in there somewhere too!  Luckily, everything but the grad classes and tenure paperwork is done now!  

On a different note, my fifth graders REALLY do not get cause and effect relationships.  As I was thinking of some activities to help them with it, this came up on my Pinterest feed: 

I love pirate themed anything and it's FREE!  Go grab your copy at Pitner's Potpourri (click on the picture to be taken to the post).

I am feeling your pain! If I can get through midyear testing and begin teaching this marking period, I might actually get my kids to learn something! BTW...Pirates rock :)

What is in your portfolio?? Can you do a post on that? I am currently building mine and need all the help I can get!

I am glad to hear things are finally settling down for you!

Hi Becky:
You are NOT a terrible blogger--your life just got in the way of your blogging!
When I read your list of have-to-do's, I felt SO bad for you. That sounds just AWFUL!

I am glad things have settled down a bit, but WOW! You have a lot of your plate.

Hang in there. The weekend is not far away...
