Well the end of this surreal week of state testing and Into The Wild is over. I wore my overalls as usual (no one appreciated them) and did art with my students all day. My principal basically said, um, well, you're gonna have all the kids that aren't taking the HSGQE for science and, um, well, you're gonna have to keep em till half day at least. I said great, art day. When it dawned on me a couple of weeks ago that my kids didn't know primary, secondary, or mixing colors I made them a color wheel and forced them to do it today. They could choose the supplies, pastels, paint, crayons, colored pencil, watercolors. They fought it, but then they gave into the colors. After finishing I opened up the flood gates to working on Mod Podge boxes, painting, drawing, coloring, or blogging. And I'm so glad I did, I got some great work today!
At the end of the day I made a list of what I wanted to do this weekend. I'll type it up for you, It goes as follows:
-plan out next week of class
-Finish SPED Class Assignment
-Finish EDU610 Thematic Unit
-Don't have a cow.
-Return Napoleon Dynamite
-Scout Tundra for Nature Walk next week
-See the Northern Lights
-Record two songs that don't suck
-Make Banana Pancakes
-Recharge calling card, again.
-Talk to Randall
-Call Tacoma Subaru for tune-up
-Make apartment less disastrous
-Smile at someone randomly
-Watch "Easy Rider"
-Try not to cut beard into sweet Dennis Hopper mustache (just joking, I just added that one now!)
I wonder if I'll get all that done. (Already recorded a good song and I haven't seen any cows). Well I hope you all have a really __________ weekend (insert type of weekend you need into the blank). I'll be attempting at lest 23% of the tasks listed above. Peace friends!
