We started state testing today with my kiddos taking their FSA Writing. It is the first time I have seen them in school as they are a digital class, and such an amazing experience to see them together as they talked amongst themselves before we went to the classroom to test. You can see how much they miss being together. ❤

Chicago Tribune: Huge crowd gathers at Rotary Hill near Naperville District 203 offices to demand area schools reopen. Hundreds of Naperville-area parents & students rallied Monday to urge local school boards to bring students back to the classroom and the playing field. Hmm...so all these parents just want to send their kids into schools do die, right? And kill all the teachers and their families too. All out of pure selfishness.
Any ideas for a more fun or interesting way to revisit classroom rules and procedures when the new semester starts? I don't want to just stand up and lecture these high schoolers. I know they hate it!
Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall? I’m not talking about mask usage, hand washing times, physical distancing in classrooms, etc. I don’t think we can expect Ts and Ss to come back and just hop right into academics. Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
How do you manage breakfast when they eat it in class? I feel like my classroom is such a mess before it is even 9 a.m.
I am scared of returning to my empty classroom that sits in a covid hotspot. Its all I want to focus on but I can't...so many great things happened during the spring and summer and they never got celebrated. There's no time like the present!

Right before Labor Day, after 2 months of dating, my guy made us “official” and asked me to be his girlfriend. (He made a romantic event of it, arranging a picnic by the lake). Ever since then, everything’s been great. until tonight. His ex, who he says he broke up with a couple of weeks before we met, called and says she could be pregnant (took a home pregnancy test and is going to the doctor ASAP). I’m full of all sorts of questions and feelings I’m not sure I have a right to. Advice?

I just don't know where to start, any suggestions on good how to books for beginners? What daily news sections should I be reading?
