Just can't get a blog done each day. Since today (Day 18) hasn't officially started, I'll save that for later. I think a weekly reflection (aka the MTBOS blogging challenge) might be a better goal for me.
Things have been very interesting these first few weeks. Like I've been saying 5th grade is so much different than what I've been used to. Also, my homeroom is full of the "high-needs" kids which I think is also wearing me out. I had two boys suspeneded yesterday for fighting in my classroom before lunch. Ugh. Not a out and out brawl, but one boy bumped into the other by accident and then hands started flying. Luckily all I had to do was yell "STOP!" and they both looked like they were going to cry.
Last night I had over 10 inches of my hair cut off, and I'm thinking of going in today and telling them I am Mrs. Nehila's mean evil twin sister and then acting the part. We'll see. Not a great actor so I don't know if I can pull it off.
Lots of good and bad stuff going on with the math so far. I need to blog more about that and especially about the bad stuff.
One thing I'm having massive trouble with is getting my 6th grade lessons in with only a 45 minute class. I do get a double block with them on Fridays, but I feel like I am just playing catch up.
