So, we had no Social Studies and no Math, but we did make sure to get our spelling pretest in :)
It was also a melancholyish day. My students had no idea what was going on, so I didn't bring it up. I'm more than willing to answer their questions, but I'm not going to go out of my way. We learned, we joked, we practiced sarcasm-all in all, a normal day in 4th grade (which is all I ever want for them). There was an air of sadness that I felt hung around the teachers and the school-but I think most students remained in the dark.
I did have one friend upset after recess (when I thought they were all going to find out), and I asked her if she wanted to talk, but she said she didn't. I did remind them all that they can talk to me about anything.
This week we are rushing to finish up all our units, so nothing get carried over break. As it stands right now, I'm giving 3 tests on Friday (I know, horrible teacher-but our party is on Thursday :)
Black Shirt: I honestly can't remember- either JCPenny or Kohls most likely
Here's hoping to a smooth & calm rest of the week.
Smiles and Sunshine,
