How appropriate that it is called March Madness!! I’m not referring to the NCAA tournament, but the final weeks before Spring Break.
My calendar is incredibly full this month with IEPs, PT conferences, the end of basketball season and the beginning of baseball season, Tweedle Dee’s 13th birthday, orthodontist and doctor’s appointments, and a few other random meetings. I am double booked on some evenings and am not really sure how I am going to work that out. One day at a time, I guess.
Just 9 days of school (plus one in-service day) until Spring Break. I don’t have any big plans over break, except for a Cavs game against the Celtics. The weekend Ian was in the hospital, we had had tickets for the kids’ first ever Cavs game. Sadly, Ian and I did not get to go.
This Friday, we will be kicking off our own March Madness unit in the Resource Room. Another Language Arts teacher and I are recycling/revamping this unit from past years when he did it in his 8th grade Social Studies class. To get started, I found this great Prezi presentation and have created a March Madness Scavenger Hunt for my students to complete. This is a good simple introduction and very well done by the creators.
