Class News Sign

So technically I'm on vacation. I should feel relaxed. But I guess my mind isn't on vacation with the rest of me. I just can't turn off the stream of school-related thoughts! I think it's because the year is winding down--and quickly.



Plus I made the mistake of flipping through my calendar to review the major events for the rest of the year and completely freaked myself out--it's a scheduling nightmare!

I knew there was only one way to calm myself down. Make a sign!

So this little sign will be on display when we get back, along with our calendar of events and any important information the students need to know (test dates, fieldtrip forms, project rubrics, etc.). I know, I'm bad for not doing this all year, but wall space becomes taken up quickly by so many other things! I'm hoping this will help my students and I stay on track in the remaining seven (SEVEN??--where did this year go?!?) weeks.

I hope some of you can use this too! :)

  5. Hi Kristen:

    We have seven weeks too!
    I think I cannot turn off my brain because I am so busy planning things for NEXT year. (Too bad there are about 35 activities that I still need to plan and carry out THIS year)

    I hope your mind will find its way to a bit of your vacation too...

  9. Dear Kristen, How are you? I love the sign you made. I was wondering if you could help me out? I have a question, which I know will sound silly to some. My son wrote a homework piece about the Emu. The teacher corrected the spelling (several times), from emu's, to emus. To the best of my understanding I always thought that any plural form of a word was spelt with an apostrophe and then an 's'. Can you please help me? Thank you, Kerrie

  12. Thank you! I have had your sign above my laminated calendar. Now I don't even need to switch my month signs every month. Less work! Thanks again. :)
