Then I took my son, Ryan, driving for the VERY FIRST TIME. It actually went really well. I was a lot calmer than he was and once he figured out which pedal was the brake and which was the gas, the ride got a lot smoother. We went up the street, turned around in the cul-de-sac then came back up the driveway. I think I'll let his dad take it from here. After all, I taught Ryan how to walk, how to talk, how to ride a bike, how to use the potty, and pretty much gave him life....I think teaching him to drive should be dad's duty, don't you?
Anyways....on with A Peek at My Week!
Teaching wise, this will be a very light week due to five days of state testing. Blahh...
While there is nothing that can really be done to "study" for the test, I feel my kiddos are ready. As a little motivator every day, I found these fun postcards at Technology Rocks. Seriously and will leave a different message on my kiddos' desks along with a piece of candy every morning.
Aren't those fun?
Also, on Saturday I will be presenting my inquiry project on using mentor texts to revise writing at the UW-Milwaukee Writing Project's Conference on the Teaching of Writing. This is the highlight of our summer institute and I'm looking forward to seeing all of my writing friends again.
Now it's your turn! What's going on in your world this week?
