Weekend Coffee Share: Beginning to Wrap Up

Join us for some coffee time!If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the weather for the last week has been perfect – not too hot and not too cold. This morning the air outside is refreshingly cool and has the potential to be hot and muggy. By then all my chores will be done and I will be able to do a little bit of relaxingΒ  and reading.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am taking things slowly in class. I have finished the curriculum and all the planned activities that will be reported on in the report cards. Now what I will do with my class are fun learning activities. During this upcoming week three of my students are leaving before the end of the school year to go on vacation and I am therefore getting all their work together so that it can go home before they leave for their planned trips. We will also have the class party a week before I normally would hold it as I want to wish them all well for the upcoming year – as well as give them their gift.

In addition to gathering all of my students’ work, I have started taking down things from my walls and putting items away in the cupboards. I was told on Thursday that my classroom will be used during the Summer for a Summer camp so it is important that the room be tidied and ready for another person to use by the 29 June. The downside to this is that my task needs to be done in 2 weeks; the upside is that I will be forced to finish on time and not linger over the tidying in the first week of our break.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my family is missing the father of our tribe. We managed to speak to my husband last night and it was nice to see his face and hear him laugh. Sigh … another 2 weeks and then we will all be back together again. At least for a while.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I am going to have a busy week. My report cards will be returned and I will make the corrections; the school concert is happening; and I will be tidying my room. The children are excited that the Summer vacation is almost here – and the teachers are looking forward to the break and the chance to rest and connect with their families. There is quite a buzz in the school at the moment.

I wish you a wonderful week ahead. May it be filled with sunshine and smiles.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Good luck with the end of the school year and all the work that goes with it. Meanwhile, glad you have good weather because Cincinnati is currently in an oppressive streak.

  2. Hi Colline. So it is true that there is no rest for the wicked or for teachers… You sound very busy…
    But it also sounds like you are in your element and your students likely love you. I always enjoy reviewing your weekly shares. I had a great week of healing and reading (4.2 books this week) and hope that you do get some down and recharge time. All the best always.

  3. Our schools have been out for three weeks already. Sorry to hear you have to go so long into the year. They were working toward having school all year here in Illinois — with about 4 breaks between terms — but with all the financial problems our state has now, that’s all been tabled for a long time.

  4. Congrats on the end of the school year! I hope you have some awesome summer plans. I remember how excited my classmates and I were when it time for summer break. We were slightly unruly and a bit intolerable, but I have to admit most of the teachers handled us quite well.

    1. I always plan to complete most things by this time of the year as all the children want to do is spend time outside. Who can blame them when it is cold here for most of the year.

  5. Transitions are so filled with conversations and important tasks and planning! I hope that you enjoy the extra time that the tight schedule supplies at the end. Things are a potpourri of activity and planning, here. I look forward to July, which is not populated by any commitments at all…right now, anyway. πŸ˜€
