Yes, I tell my 5th graders not to wait until the last minute. I tell them to work a little bit on their projects each night and not to leave it all until the night before it is due. Yet, here I am the night before we go back to school after having almost two weeks off and I still need to write my lesson plans and my class newsletter. I still need to grade the book reports handed in before Christmas break and enter the grades from the spelling and math tests.
So, am I ready to go back tomorrow?
