Back to School Teacher Meme's

Wow, seriously wow.  The first half of the school year is over and the second half has just begun.  It is day four and already I am feeling the crunch and stress of the amount of work ahead of both my students and myself.  To combat this, I decided to do a round up of funny teacher meme's and relate them to my classroom with a couple funny stories for you!

THIS! Literally when I realized on Sunday that I actually had to return to work on Monday I was so upset.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time off with my family and kids and I know how hard it is to have everyone readjust to being back in school.  Case in point:  The tiny peanut has been fighting bedtime like crazy and tonight told me, "mama no work". 

I mean obviously!  This is actually a huge pet peeve of mine.  Yesterday as my students were fully engaged in our conversation on sleep and homeostasis, I asked the class to raise their hand if they thought they had a "biological cock...CLOCK, I mean CLOCK."  Yes I had a freudian slip of epic proportions and they were all listening very clearly.  Take that day 2 back.   

My students are working on a really cool unit on our online platform and I am a super explicit and clear teacher when directions are given (ok like 95% of the time).  In addition to the directions be typed out step by step (with screenshots!), I also go over the directions with them...still kids refuse to read when they have tuned out...This is my literal face. 

Typically my kids get to choose their seats...its day 4, I have chosen them for these little minions.  Dear me, let's hope that the rest of the year goes smooth.  

Regardless, this is a fact and although I am exhausted, my students are wild, my husband is sick and my kids miss the heck out of our time, I love what I do.  In addition, Jason now has weekends off starting THIS weekend!!!
