Over the last few days I’ve finished lesson plans, done the printing, and filled the binders for our next school year.
Last year’s stuff has been emptied off the shelves and next year’s stuff is waiting.
Everything not needed for next year has been taken out of the kids’ boxes.
The dining room walls have been cleared of everything we won’t need next year.
My ELA and Everything Else lesson books are filled and ready.
Laminating has been done and flipbooks have been made.
Work samples have been pulled out of notebooks and workbooks and are waiting to be made into portfolios. Amazing how a full year of school work for three boys can be reduced to such a small pile!
Everything I didn’t save has been thrown away (this is only about 1/3 of what went in the trash).
The first day of the 2015-16 school year is August 25th, nearly 12 weeks from now. Now is the time to enjoy a well-deserved summer break!
