Did I forget to tell you that I have a four day weekend and it is pretty much starting right this very second? I am already in my pjs, my feet are up, and I am not worrying about a darn thing.
We get tomorrow AND Monday off for Veteran’s Day. That’s all I’ll say.
I’m not going to tell you about our Furlough Days That Are No Longer, and getting money back which is a good thing, but resulted in having to pay back the Furlough Days, and how the school calendar is all a big fat mess, and how I paid one day back in August even though I was super stressed with school starting, and how some people didn’t so now they have to go to work tomorrow to pay it back . . .
I’ll just say, “Neener, neener, neener!” and leave it at that.
Like I said, that’s all I’ll say.
I will also say that we are studying Native Americans in Social Studies right now and it is fabulous. I love Social Studies. I’ve said this before.
Social Studies and me — well, we’re like french fries and ranch.
We are studying Native Americans “in general” and learning that there are all kinds of tribes in all kinds of regions. But we’re not focusing on one particular tribe – our third graders do that.
With that being said, we learned that some tribes used teepees long ago because they were easy to move from place to place.
So we made teepees.
Which were way easier to make than a pueblo dwelling or a wigwam, let me tell you.
