We also had a PTA luncheon yesterday. And a quick meeting for "service awards." This made me feel old. Three years as a HS Spanish teacher. A couple years break for my master's. Then at the same school the rest of it. Which has some wonderful students and parents and staff. As much as a change would be interesting it's never worked out. Anyway. I appreciate the thought but what on earth am I supposed to do with it? Same with the stack of books statuette for the Trinity nomination or whatever it is I'm supposed to pick up at Central Office for missing the reception?
But when I got home yesterday I got distracted by a grown up #bookaday. So I missed getting a post done. Oops.
So this was cute. Only how would I get across the idea that it was not to sit and color and then want a "prize" before ever leaving the library? We hand out spirit sticks for making reading a habit for a month. This year I did away with separate reading logs (waste of paper and waste of the time to fill out a second one) and thought I'd use the teachers. Then teachers never sent kids or reading logs to me. I asked once a month for the first semester and then gave up. I didn't mean to add to the teacher's load. Admin said (during my evaluation) they wanted me to reinstate separate logs next year (I could point out I was also asked why with I was using so much paper to copy summer reading fliers from the local public library as well as like B&N, Half Price,etc. Because I want them to READ? And get free books?). I don't really like reading logs but I can't conference with every single kiddo on the campus. So I don't know what to do. Will worry about it later. Just thinking about coloring at the moment. Summer brain already.
I would rather do something like this. Would that fit with the seven habits "lighthouse" goals apparently we will really be working on next year?
Personal coloring. Because I like simple more than the elaborate designs in many "adult" coloring books. Made my hand tired even before I broke my finger. (Oh, wait. There it is again. Old.) She also does some pretty cute planner stickers. One of the places I actually buy from. Most of the time I just use all the clip art I already have.
I like the colors on this one.
We won't talk about how many books were still out. They are getting read and loved. They are getting read and reread and loved. They are not under a bed or behind a couch. :/
