Since July flew by at warp speed, I’m here with the Oh Boy Fourth Grade Currently August already!
I can’t believe it.
Kind of like McKayla Maroney can’t believe she fell on her @$$ and got the silver. If looks could kill.
BTW- Does anyone think of McDonalds or Grey’s Anatomy when they see her name spelled that way?
What menu item would the McKayla be? A veggie burger? A double meat double cheese? What do you think?
Ok, back to Currently in August.
Well first, I’ve already worked a week at the district office, and I’ll be working all this week at a workshop for the district. SO summer is over. The only blessing is we start around 8am instead of 7am. Kick me now.
We worked on writing GT curriculum, and it is good to have the entire year pacing calendar already ready to go. I know exactly what vocabulary words I’ll be teaching on January 14th! Actually, I just made that date up, but we really did map it out to that detail. Seems strange, but hopefully it provides consistency across the district.
Today I filled out my August calendar and it is packed! Between school PD, running stuff, and doctor appointments I am booked!
I’m pretty freaked out about the skin cancer now. After meeting with my Mohs Surgeon, he encouraged me to meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss doing the stitches. So, surgery is postponed for a few weeks til I have my plastics consult. I don’t know if that is what it is called, I just made that up. Sounded Doctor-like. I’ll be writing more soon about this. I’m still in denial. WEAR SUNSCREEN PEOPLE!
I had to take a break from writing this post to watch the men’s gymnastics floor routine. Have you noticed that a lot of gymnasts are bounding out of their passes with awkward leaps and jumps so they can avoid landing deductions? Well, tonight my goal was to do the funny jump with the men every time they landed. I call it the butterfly. It is much easier than what the women do. I earned a bronze for my efforts.
