The last two weeks have gone well. Today everyone and everything seemed to be out of sorts. One of my high school girls never got into the classroom but had major behavior issues and ended up being taken back to her room and not participating at all. The two elementary kids were even more difficult than usual. Fortunately my middle school kids were wonderful! We treated them to a special snack that they made for themselves. Graham crackers spread with Nutella, then covered with mini marshmallows with raisins for eyes made credible ghosts! They loved them. We then had a social class with the kids playing fun educational games with each other and the adults.
I will be doing lots of work over the weekend to get caught up but will also sleep and relax in between. Our county and state have had record numbers of new cases and an increase in deaths. It is still pretty low but heading in the wrong direction. Our geography helps a LOT because it keeps people widely spread out. Mountains and valleys along with small towns and few bigger cities really reduces exposure. I am staying safe and practicing sensible precautions.
Everyone have a blessed and peaceful weekend!
