Morning updates

by stryson

Today is international peace day… or maybe tomorrow is. Both are marked as such on my calendar of holidays. Oh, well! I think an extra day of peace can’t be a bad thing. In any case, today is also World Alzheimer’ Day and World Gratitude day. So – don’t forget to be thankful!

I know, that was a terrible joke. I couldn’t resist.

I should be able to finally start teaching my sixth graders today, though my fourth and fifth graders are not yet done testing, so we cannot begin yet. I feel like the testing is never ending, but I know it seems that way every year.

Things will get more interesting around this blog as my classes get going. I’ve also been looking into some new educational games to share, but I like to play them through before I link them. Look for those to come.

I’m also open to recommendations for books on a fifth or sixth grade reading level. What did you really enjoy reading at that age?
