- My student teacher came to observe for a few hours.
- We had a student council meeting and I'm the faculty sponsor.
- We're approaching the end of the quarter and I was assessing in multiple grades.
- I just put up Halloween decorations and kids needed a few minutes to adjust at the beginning of EVERY class.
- I was unintentionally wearing two VERY different socks today.
- My coffee didn't brew properly today... didn't have any to bring to school.
- All morning was non-stop where kids just needed help and needed instruction so that I had no moments to stop and breathe (and with no passing time between classes that meant that I had 3 hours of nonstop classes with a new group coming in every 25 minutes).
- I am preparing programs with 4 of my 6 grades.
- We had an assembly that cut into my lunch, my PLC, my plan time.
- I had to set up sound for the assembly.
- Nonstop teaching after assembly. Meaning no bathroom break.
- New contacts and they've been moving around in my eye all day. Blurry vision and squinting!
- TORRENTIAL rain all day. Don't tell me that kids aren't affected by full moons, low pressure systems, etc. They're like little barometers... and man, were they ON today!
... and when I got home I got a call from my Alma Mater asking for money... wrong day to call!
WHAT A DAY! NOTHING TO DO BUT POST A FREEBIE!
On a different note, I recently decided to make some bright and fun signs for my classroom. I wanted to take my favorite teaching quotes (those things that I catch myself saying over and over again) and put them into a poster/sign that I can print off and post up in my room. I cannot take credit for any of these phrases, but instead I have heard them come from the mouths of some really fantastic teachers that I've observed or been mentored by. I made these signs a week or two ago and I'd been holding onto them thinking that I'd eventually think of more stuff to add or more quotes to include when I had some free time. But, it's days like this that make me think that that free time in the future might be a long way off.
So, instead I just posted the freebie on my TpT site. Here's my thought. Instead of waiting to fill this up and release it when I have 10-15 favorite sayings, why not put it out there now. You can enjoy the freebie and think of YOUR favorite quotes and phrases as you do. Email those sayings to me at MakeMomentsMatter@gmail.com and I will happily include them in this file and then update it so that everyone can have a bright and sparkly copy to reference in THEIR music rooms!
