A Typical Sunday in a Teacher’s Life

This is what my Sundays typically look like…

Last week, we began a new unit – Text Structures.  I had my students take notes all week, so planning was a little easier.  This week, we’re going to hit it hard, so the lesson planning is a bit more intense.  I’ve got to engage my students fully to help them understand the patterns in which authors organize their writing.  As a person who loves organization, this is right up my alley.  Trying to help students “get it” is another matter altogether!

So, while you’re napping the day away, think of me…and all other teachers out there striving to perfect lessons for the children’s brains we’ve been charged with impacting.

  1. I don’t miss those Sunday planning sessions.

  2. Hey girl. Us Principals are hard at it, too. My Assistant Principal has been out for a month. I started work about 8:30 this morning and even skipped church–something I NEVER do. Hang in there, and I hope you are productive. My goals are great for today’s accomplishments.

  3. Reblogged this on Keepin' It Real and commented:
    I love reading blogs by other teachers – and this one in particular are usually what my Sundays are like with Lesson Planning. I had a break yesterday due to a long weekend, having been able to spread it out. But yes, this is a typical Sunday in my life currently as well.
