I am happy to report that life is good!! I finished my report cards...comments and all. I wonder if parents that aren't teachers realize how much work report cards are? I can't do it at school because I need lots of quiet, uninterrupted time. When I write comments, I always want to be careful to think about how a parent would read the comment. Sometimes I think that comments are harder than conferences. At conferences it is clear right away if a parent doesn't understand or has questions, but that is not true with comments. I always strive to send a message that is both positive and true about each student. I like to include a goal whenever possible too. That's all to say that I spent about 9 hours this weekend working on report cards. I'm thankful that I had the time to do them and I'm glad they are done!
My card was made on a night when I was determined to ink up ALL the stamps from my December Kit of the Month from Unity. I'm happy how it turned out. There is actually no color on the wings of the bee...they are all glittery! I had so much fun that night just going with things and stamping up a storm!!
I hope that life is good for you right now!! It doesn't look so great for my Bears!!
