I always have a love/hate relationship with Spring Break. I love it because I don't have to wake up to an alarm clock, I can sit at home and watch talk shows and TLC shows, and, best of all, I can wear sweatpants and t-shirts everyday (or even pajamas!). I hate it because it puts me into "Summer Mode," but only for a week, even if there are only 39 school days left until S-U-M-M-E-R!
Anyway, I might head in to school tomorrow afternoon. If I don't, I know I will have a mountain of boxes from DonorsChoose to open on Monday morning. I had 4 projects fund in the last 2 weeks! And each one was for a lot of items. My secretary already teases me, asking if I'm building a city in my classroom, or if I'm stockpiling for a war! This time, it will be very bad! I'm getting a whole order of vocabulary games, activities, and notebooks, a large cubby system to keep everyone's school supplies in, all of my organizational items (those giant rubbermaid tubs and other boxes to keep things in), and a whole bunch of books on CD and 4 copies of each book to read along with. All of that has shipped and should be sitting in my classroom. See why I need to go in on a Sunday? My kids, and other teachers, would flip out because of all that stuff!
I'll take a picture of my mountain of boxes before I open them so you can see all of the wonderful things DonorsChoose has sent me!
