Thanks for stopping by for Day in a Sentence at my blog! We teachers are in the midst of the long, long stretch between Labor Day and Veterans’ Day. It’s time that we can use productively in setting up the structure and rules of our classroom, create bonds with our new students and create a foundation of instruction which will carry us through the rest of the school year.
Yes, this is all true, but…it is so long. We still have about three weeks left of this time, and I, for one, am feeling the slump. I see it in my students too. They are restless, and not even my best tricks are grabbing their attention much. For this week’s sentences I thought maybe we could think about what we’re doing to take care of ourselves as well as our students at this changing time of year. If you don’t have students, I imagine you may still be feeling the change of the seasons, which is a good time to focus on a little self care. So, having said all that, here is my sentence:
Sleeping a little more, taking long walks along the riverbank with my camera, an occasional massage and daily writing all feed the tired parts of me and help me face each day in good spirits.
Add your sentence to my comments section, and I’ll hold them all until Sunday afternoon when I’ll release them for all to read. Thanks again for coming by and adding your thoughts this week!
