There are never enough vacation days to do nothing, just like there are never enough school days to build the life skills of reading and writing.
5 more full school days, with several final exams and some movie periods built in, plus 2 mornings of only exams. Then 2 "records days" to churn out grades. Finally, 3 staff development days because we're really focused on professional learning and development during the last 3 days of June!
Wrapped up the portfolio assessment today. One last independent reading assignment this week: write short book review and post on TweenTribune.com (great classroom resource!).
