It's been an extremely busy week for me both inside and outside of school, so I fell a bit behind with my personal work goals.  The kids are used to getting their grades updated every day or two for my class and their papers back just as quickly, but it's taken a bit longer than that this time, not by much but still noticeable for the kids.

I'm going to try to keep things on the shorter side for awhile since I've got a few plans I want to start working on in preparation of our SOL review that will start in May.  I also have a few new sites I want to check out in more detail to see if they'd work in our math classes.  If I am actually able to keep these on the shorter side (I've said that often and then still end up with an quite a bit), I still welcome anyone who needs clarification or has questions to feel free to email or message me at anytime.

It's been a crazy month for us here in Central VA! There was no WCS posting last week (only a quick email and Edmodo messages to the kids) since school was closed to students the entire week and teachers only went in that Friday for a work day. This week, we at least got three days of school in before more snow put us out again Thursday and Friday, so we all tried to pack as much learning into that time as possible.

Aunt Kimmie's taxi cab service is running this afternoon, so I'm trying to get a head start on this week's update (and keep it short if I don't get too long winded again) before my niece and her friend come looking for a ride home after school.
