Day -4: The One With the Obligatory Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Going back to school means going back to routine. Going back to school means trying to get to bed on time and get a good night’s sleep (twice failed already and it’s only Tuesday). Going back to school means running to Safeway at 7am because you have no bread. Going back to school means peanut butter sandwiches.

While I’ve seen versions of all of the courses this year (huzzah for teaching at an Internationals School), we’ve never had much time to explicitly make connections between courses. We’ve got some ideas of which language functions we can teach simultaneously to support student learning and some ideas for aligning content.

Room setup continues to move slowly, admittedly due to no one’s fault but my own. There’s not a whole lot I need to do since I’m using the same room setup as last year (except the part where I moved my desk to a new location for the third year in a row). I also might be in denial that summer is actually over. On the other hand, I’m actually going to put up the alphabet I’ve been meaning to use for over a year.
