Teachers on the other hand, have to show up on Monday, at the usual time and be bored to tears all day. At 2:09 today, they sent out an email that said this:
On Monday we will have an all day training on Personal Narrative in the library from 8:30 – 3:16. Please bring your Write Tools Binder. It is requested that you bring 2 sets of student samples if you have them available as we would like to quickly review writing strategies we used last year. Also, please check and let me know if you need a personal narrative insert for your Write Tools Binder.
At 2:09….. and school gets out at 3:10.
One of my favorite sayings is, “A failure to prepare on YOUR part, does not constitute an emergency on MY part.” Heck, they knew we would be doing staff development last spring.
And I just have oodles of FINE examples of Narrative Writing from my kindergarteners that have been in school now for lets see…….TWENTY EIGHT days. Some of them can even write their names. Wanna bet, they don’t have anything else planned for the kinder and even the first grade teachers? What a stinking waste of time Monday is going to be…….
