And yes, of course it still counts if I finished them right before they were due and there was really no choice about whether or not I would finish them because I had to because it is my job and they were due.
The important part is that I FINISHED THEM AND CROSSED THEM OFF MY LIST.
Nod head for emphasis.
So I don’t know about you, but when I have finished report cards, I tend to up the rigor of the learning in my classroom.
We go hardcore.
Above and beyond.
I mean, I make my kids’ brains hurt from the effort and energy we put forth after all the grades are done and nothing from this point forward “counts”, per se.
This week my class has been working extremely hard on this amazing pack:
Yep, that’s me. Free as a bird.

I also finished report cards at the last minute because I had way too many things to finish this week. But hey! I like the way you put it :). I live in Houston and our distrt has 2 days to make up due to our ice days if no school (we didn't even get snow). So I have school Monday. :(. 4 more days then its summer vacation 🙂
Have a great last week!!

Oh my gosh, Kristin! I have caught several episodes of Tori and I must say that I feel differently about her than before. If this is her REAL life then I actually feel sorry for her. First off, Dean is just a jerk. Secondly, FOUR kids. What was she thinking? Like you, I cannot change the channel, but I do sit with my mouth open a little…..just wondering how her life is such a train wreck.
Hahaha… I also opt to watch the kids on the faculty vs 5th grade game day. We play dodge ball against them and they throw the ball really hard. Just sayin'
Teachers Are Terrific!

I haven't watched the Tori show…I still like thinking of her as Donna Martin!

I seriously cannot read any of your posts without a permanent smile on my face and even a snort every now and again. I die!!!! With that being said, thank you for making me laugh after a super stressful day!!! Love you!!!

Reports are sitting here, waiting in the wings…
Have to say it's hard not to watch the train wreck. Just goes to show you that it certainly takes more than money and fame to make a marriage work!
Kudos on your mad softball skills, I mean your mad kid-watching skills! <3

ahhhhhhhhhhhh report cards!!! WHY did you have to remind me?! I am the world's worst procrastinator. Yep. My slideshow is finished but 0 copies have been burned. Also, my husband made me play softball once for his co-rec team while we were in college and still dating and I TOLD him that I don't play sports. Nope, none. I was a dancer. Different set of skills, mind you. I had the same dream as you…it didn't pan out so well. BUT the guys were all super nice and were like "but you saved the game because without another girl we would've had to forfeit and yada yada.." Still, it was embarrassing. I've been banned from all friendly-game-playing since then because my husband and his friends are all way too competitive. LOL I watch the kids too. And work on my tan. But anyway. LOVE reading your posts Teeny! xoxo

OhEmGee. This cracked me up.
I'll confess, I haven't watched True Tori. There hasn't been time. My kids last day of school was last Thursday and mine was last Friday. I think I've slept ever since. Either that or craved food and eaten it!! With that being said, I don't know that I'd stay. I know someone better help the man that gave me a family of four kids within like 5 years and then cheated on me. I'm pretty sure his life wouldn't be so hunky dory! Anyway, congrats on having that slideshow done. I remember when I did one for my K class. It took me forever. Enjoy the end of your year.

Good thing I read your post just now, because I did my grades, but never entered them! They were written on my hard copy, does that count??? LOVE your posts! And now I go to search for True Tori to get addicted to yet another "reality" show. My husband is just going to love me adding another show to the DVR (smh…he HATES these kind of shows).
