I had had it today. Things didn't go as planned this week. My letter writing unit will have to carry over into January to give kids the time to do quality work. My inferring and predicting unit is far from over and four days with delays, field trips, and snow days are not helping. And to top it all off, I'm tired of kids losing work.

Today, my talker couldn't find his practice. I told him, "If I find it in your desk, you owe me." What he was going to owe, I don't know, but all I knew was that I didn't want to find it in there. As I began scrounging through the desk, he said, "I don't really care about losing recesses, I only care about learning."

After that comment, I couldn't stay upset. He melts my heart!
