Small Scraps & Weekend Links

Totally Off-Topic

Guys. I am fearful for the future of our country. What. Is. Going. On. Here? I’m scared. I have so many thoughts and feelings about our Presidential candidates, I just, can’t. I can’t. And the thing that really gets me, is listening to my students talk about the candidates. Clearly they are repeating their parents opinions, I mean, what 1st grader is well versed in politics, but it is still sad. I have students who are afraid of having to leave the country if someone gets elected. It’s sad to think about how unwanted they must be feeling right now. How unwanted their parents are feeling. I’m sad, guys. I’m sad.

This Week’s High & Lows

      • We’re working on a school-wide art-based fundraiser right now, and while I have mixed feelings about it, it certainly does make planning and prepping SO easy. Which may explain this moment:

      • Another one of my students lost a parent this week. My heart breaks for these students who have to experience tragedy at such a young age.
      • I’m at that point in the school year when you start running out of basic supplies, like pencils and erasers, and you threaten your students and their first born child if they don’t respect the materials.
