Yesterday was parent teacher conference day! Thats the day when the parent (me) sits down with the teacher (uh… that would be… um… me) and has a discussion about what weve been doing, how it is going, and what is upcoming in the next few weeks and months.
For some reason the past several months Ive not been taking my hour or so a week to really prepare and orient myself on our upcoming lessons. Because most weeks we are just doning the “next” thing in each subject, I can mostly wing it once Ive plotted things out initially. Still, too much winging makes my wings sore, so it was time to plan! Certain aspects of our schedule needed to be shifted to accommodate the increasing number of subjects being added, but I kept not finding the time to puzzle it through. I also needed to get printouts and copies done up in advance rather than doing the “morning of” scramble. Id always been on top of it before and done a week in advance, but for some reason got off track and needed to get back ON!
