After an incredibly warm, mild winter with NO snow our area has suddenly been pounded this week. It seems winter decided to show up after all! We had a snow day Friday and were just cancelled again today. Although I'm starting to miss my students and hate giving up our valuable instructional time I am NOT going to complain about a day off! I am always grateful for extra time to work on things - and sleep! :)
On the agenda for today? Getting my grad school personal statement in line so I can send it on to some mentors to be read through before I hopefully submit it in the next week or two. I also plan to get ahead on some of my planning for school, finish some cleaning I pushed off this weekend, and nap - naturally.
I may run over to school this afternoon, but with 4 inches of snow on top of the freezing drizzle from yesterday currently covering the roads I think I'll sit tight and enjoy my coffee on the couch until things get cleaned off a bit.
One thing I did finish up this morning already (yes, I did still get up at 5 - that's when the district's first automatic call came through!) are my Area and Perimeter posters for our room. We began looking at these areas last week and if we ever go back to school we'll be finishing them up and using them to do some problem solving this week. My kiddos picked up the concepts quickly, so these posters are more of a reminder for them of when to add or multiply.
