The last two days have been a challenge with both my own children and my students. There is something about a full moon that causes more energy than normal. The children are more talkative, hyper, and just in general, LOUD!
Today, I had an activity planned that would require manipulatives that I just could not do. The extra equipment would have caused mayhem in the room, and I just couldn't handle the extra chaos in the room. We had to go with a quiet activity in order to bring quiet to the room. The rest of the week will probably not be any better due to changes in routine. Tomorrow, there is a coat giveaway and on Friday, a fire drill!
How I look forward to the weekend this week and starting over again next week!
