This was me last Tuesday.
Sub plans. Does anymore really need to be said? And not only 1 day of sub plans...let's try 3 days of sub plans. For a pre-k classroom. This is a task not easily met. Especially for someone like me who, we all know, cannot sit still for more than 5 minutes. Who, when forced to sit still for more than 5 minutes, will find exactly 5,267 other things to do. Like...decorating my Chick-Fil-A cup from lunch... who cares that it's just me in the classroom. It needs my name...you know...just in case. One can never be too careful.
Or...going on a treasure hunt to fill up sand and water center. In Louisiana we have roughly 2.5 days where the leaves are actually fall colors. I had to take advantage. It was out of my control.
Or how about hanging up work samples..that soundrd like something important. So what if these work samples are from August. Doesn't August work deserve equal rights. I'm sure August work wants to be displayed too. I had choice, but to take the time to display them for everyone to see.
Now..onto sub plans. I could do this. I had this. ::worried look on face:: No...I really did not. I did not have this. By 4:30 here was my progress....
I mean..at least they were decorated. That counts for something..right? And I had made lists. That's progress. After 45 more minutes of staring into space, organizing my desk drawers, and making playlists (older generation: see explanation below) I gave up. Threw in the towel. Procrastinators unite! I am the president of club procrastination. I thrive under knowing a deadline is approaching. And by approaching I mean within the next 5 minutes. After all...it was only Tuesday..I had still had all of Wednesday to get this done.
(playlist: putting your favorite songs onto a list for a specific purpose. Ex. the songs on the list titled Songs-to-sing-while-driving-on-a-sunny-day list would be completely from the songs on the list titled Songs-to-sing-while-cleaning-the-house. Now..all of you who are of the older generation..I have helped you become a tad more techie. Use your new knowledge.)
