So what's mind-boggling this Monday? I'm afraid that it's the weather again! It has been so cold...
We only had one day of classes last week! Granted, Monday and Tuesday were scheduled off days, but Thursday and Friday were good old calamity days, not for snow, but for cold, like -30 degrees cold! The week before that we missed a day for snow and then had Friday as a scheduled off day. Can you sense a pattern here... missing lots of days. We have used EIGHT calamity days since Christmas break! It is difficult to get a routine going.
So what's a teacher to do when her mind is so boggled? Have her students play Boggle, that's what! Boggle is a great morning work activity, it's good for brain breaks, and even works well for indoor recess. Haven't tried it yet with your kiddos? Here's a board to download and project for your students to play. They will think it's a game, while you know they are practicing word skills, AND while they are PLAYING, you can catch your breath and plan ahead. WIN-WIN!
