Snow Days and Make Up Time

We were recently out of school for nine days which brings our total to eleven days. Of course the question is how can we make up those lost days? It really does not make sense to tack on the days at the end of the year, I mean testing is over and I and the students just want to go home. Okay, so what makes the most sense--increase the instructional day. But please make it worth the teacher's and the student's time. Thitry minutes is not enough time to really teach anything. Let's have at least forty-five minutes, and I'd really like an hour.

Extended Vacation

Although it has been my intention to keep up with posting on this blog, time has gotten away from me.
In January, the focus was on preparing students for benchmarks and the state writing test and then we were out for two snow days.
In February the focus was on completing the Disney Planet Challenge and preparing to complete our StudenTreasure books for publishing and what happens, we are out an additional nine days for snow. We will be returning to school tomorrow.
