I have been stewing myself steadily since a rather disastrous Friday at school. There was a highlight of a logistically perfect science experiment lesson. But everything else was rotten, hijacked, poorly done, messy and unproductive. A little blessing of the principal forgetting an observation time meant that a poor reading lesson was not seen. A lot of it had to do with it being a Friday, when children tend to be a bit more likely to be uppity, and a Friday where I was rather exhausted and rather aimless and underprepared.
From end of class to now, I have been pretty quiet and haven't applied myself to the task of planning.
