I feel like I've been on the go non-stop for the last two weeks! Last week, especially, was a crazy week at school. Even though it was a short week, I was gone on Wednesday for a PBIS conference and Thursday morning for CPR training. There were other meetings, practice and paperwork during the week... AND worst off all, I only had one prep for the entire week! I feel like I'm still catching up this week.
To make things a little better, last week I started a Maerchen (fairy tale) unit with my German 3/4 class. It's one of my favorites! There is a lot of grammar, culture and history to discuss. We ended the week by watching The Brothers Grimm. I think it will end up being a five-week unit and hopefully, the kids (the majority of which are male) enjoy it as much as I do!
On top of that, Chad's basketball team has been playing in their regional tournament (which they won last night!). I've had the difficult job of keeping book, which is really just to help me watch (pay attention to) the game. The dance team and I have also been hosting our annual Kiddie Camp at the elementary school. I've been making the rounds between all three schools in our district!
I've also managed to stay up-to-date with my training schedule. As the weather has been cold and snowy, I've been running inside and making use of my gym membership. I've been trying to keep a pace of at least 10:00 miles on my training runs. It might seem slow, but my fastest half was at a pace of 11:30. Since I'm only training eight weeks, I thought I should try to pick up the pace... we'll see how that turns out.
So, here's to a relaxing weekend!
