Lazy Days of Christmas

I know that the song lyrics are talking about summer, but lazy is where it's at here in Krazy Town.

Teachers, you know what I mean. The last week before Christmas break really takes it out of you, doesn't it? All that excitement, culminating in a fun party! (Can you smell the sarcasm from where you are sitting, LOL!)

I tried to keep my sanity by keeping the kids focused on work until the last day of the week. It was a half day for us, so we "partied" all morning. First we finished up some work. Then we colored Christmas cards to send to a local nursing home. Next we watched a video - "The Muppets Christmas Carol", one of my favorites. Then we ate, and then we got ready to go home. As the kids left, I handed them their presents from my partner teacher and me - a Jingle Spirit Stick, a Smencil, a candy cane, and a handful of candy, all tied up in a favor bag. They were thrilled.

Our gift from the district was to leave an hour after kids were dismissed. However, I still had some paperwork (Yay! Paperwork!) to finish before I could depart, so 3 of us went to lunch (yummm, caldo  de pollo!) and then came back to work. I was finished and out of there by 3:00.

Then I got a haircut and went home and collapsed. I slept 10 hours Friday night and took a 3 hour nap on Saturday. Saturday was pajama day, hence the lazy as in the title of this post.

However, this week is shaping up to be busy - birthday dinner for my roommate's Mom last night, Christmas dinner at our house tomorrow, Game Night with dear friends Wednesday, blogger meet-up (!!) Thursday, and Friday morning I wing my way to Alabama for my nephew's wedding on New Year's Eve.

I am working on a post to show you a project the kids did for common and proper nouns, but I'm too lazy to scan in the student work for pictures in the post.

Maybe later. After a nap.

Merry Christmas to all of you in Blogland.

    P.S. I am NOT a big fan of the week leading up to holiday break (or the few days before either!)

    Surprisingly though, my kiddos were pretty good (shocker!)
