10 Day Count

Florida does something known as "The 10 Day Count", basically every school reports the number of physical bodies sitting in a classroom and then decides if teachers should be added or taken away.  Well......., 2nd grade is low in bodies so I was told yesterday that I would need to pack my room and I would be placed in a school with high numbers.  As of today I still haven't received a phone call telling me where I will be placed or what grade level-----UGH

I am so frustrated and exhausted that I decided to stop thinking about school tonight and focus on something fun  :)  This is the sample Christmas Card I made.  I think I will make them for this years list.

Years ago "somebody" (that couldn't have been a teacher), came up with the open-classroom concept and then realized it was too noisy and distracting, but there just isn't a good way to fix it.

Until now---------------I bought a shower curtain to use as a decoration in the classroom and  by accident decided it would be better as a make-shift door.

The students love to open and close it, and it does provide the much needed blockage from the distracting hallway.
