10 More Days...

10 more days until summer break
9 more evenings to set my alarm (although the birds wake me up before my alarm)
8 more days that I will meet with my high school class (besides the Saturday lunch)
7 more days to make sure I have lesson plans written for
6 more mornings to meet with my middle school students
5 more chances to practice for the semester exams
4 more chances that my high school students have to improve their writing pieces for their portfolios
3 more farewell parties for my elementary students
2 more exams to grade
1 more chance to welcome students to school during my last hallway duty of the year
0 chances to wish for more time to learn or to grade or to teach: SUMMER IS HERE!

  4. I love the countdown idea! And I guess I didn't realize you taught all grades... WOW! That is truly amazing. Enjoy your last few days. I only have ONE! :-)

  5. I love this Jana! And I love what you said about revision, revision, revision! My 7th graders and I realized this year the their projects must be read ALOUD to someone BEFORE they go to final draft...when you read them aloud you find the mistakes and the "I" instead of the "it" and all of that type of thing. Bravo for you and your busy school year...enjoy your summer!
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. I like the idea of counting down. So many interesting ways to integrate numbers with writing structure.
