I thought I had beaten it. I thought I was in the clear. I figured that there was no WAY I could get the yucky stomach bug that the rest of my family had....four days later. Totally wrong!
I was fine. Until after lunch yesterday. We had a small assembly to kick off our "One School, One Book" program. Every child in the school is getting a copy of The Trumpet of the Swan.
Long story short, I had to leave school early.
It was really inconvenient too. My husband is out of town...on a fishing trip. So I had to leave my youngest son at his grandmother's because there was no WAY I would be able to take care of him and be sick. My oldest was a real sweetheart. He kept saying, "Mommy, if you need anything, just tell me. I'll get it for you." Ahhh..sweet boys.
Thankfully, I was able to return to the world of the living today.
This week we are giving the PALS assessment. I was SO proud of one of my little guys. He is an ELL student, and he got up to the fourth grade level word list!! He KNEW that he had done a great job and was so excited!
On the topic of giving mid-year assessments, I need advice. When you are testing one child, what are your other children working on? The lack of a regular schedule during these days throws my classroom off - me included! I never had to give the PALS in third grade, and I'm not sure the best way to manage it. Any ideas that you have will be appreciated!
I guess that is enough randomness for one evening. Thanks to all of you who stuck it through till the end of this post!
