Thursday, Friday, Satuday....

Zoom, there went the first week with kids.

It felt like a routine is building and that feels good.   Sadly, I have jury duty next week and probably report on Tuesday.   I'm praying not to get put on a jury.  I have much too much to do!

List update:
  • Start screenings from Kindergarten referrals-It's started, waiting for permission slips
  •  IEP monthly calendar to post-I have no idea what I meant. Finish big calendar for wall w/IEP due dates on it.
  • Set up a system to remind teachers when an IEP is due.
  • Adjust two existing bulletin boards over the desks.  
  • Empty one file drawer/day containing decluttered items-I decided 2 drawer/week is good enough.  Haven't yet done one, sigh.
  • Organize file cabinet with articulation and phonology resources, no progress yet.
  • Maybe put up one new bulletin board depending on first kids projects for days 1 and 2, have done!  
 So, Friday, after my morning student and preschoolers I have my assessment block but no kids to assess yet so I got those K referrals organizes and some permission slips sent out.  Then I put up a bulletin board.   My lone Friday afternoon preschooler showed up and we had a good hour.  I didn't think he would work that long but he did.   Of course, my version of preschool work looks a lot like play.   After he and mom left I put up the last two big bulletin boards.   I have one small one to put up and the one to shift a few inches.   Will try to remember to take photos if I'm in next week.

Today I wrapped up my re-organize the yarn project that I've been working on for 5 weeks.   It was supposed to be a one week project!    Might go take a photo of the closet and might not.   I took a big box and a small bag of yarns to a high school teacher who sponsors a knitting club.   She was so happy that most of the yarns were not pastels.   I have another big box to ship across country to a fellow knitter who says that she and her local knitting friends would love to play with the boucles that I do not like, the goofy novelty yarns that I'm tired of,  and as many of the odds and ends that will fit in the box.  Yay.

Then I have a bag for knitters and quilters at church.  A choir friend knits lap blankets for veterans and the quilters use yarns to tie off some of the quilts they make.  Yay.

 Start of re-organizing the yarn project.

I have barely had time since Tuesday to knit on my Mystery shawl.  I'm half a clue behind so need to hop to it and knit but here is what I have done.
