Have you ever been so tired that you physically cannot stop yawning?

Well, today was that day…and what did I get to do? Reading Assessments!

Normally I don’t mind reading assessments…in fact I like to do them as they give such valuable information. They were a bit rough on me today though, as one of my kids sat and took 15-20 minutes per question to think of a response…and then his response was ‘I don’t know.’ That makes an exhausted day a whole lot longer and a whole lot harder to stay awake.

I am thankful, though, as I am getting the assessments done fairly quick-ish-ly, and my kiddos are pretty self-reliant while I’m at it.

But…for the sake of my sanity…I am going to grab a short nap before the night’s activities.

Here’s to more energy tomorrow! 🙂

    I’m in the middle of reading assessments, too. It can be mind numbing at times.

  4. Wishing you lots of rest!!! It’s hard to concentrate and be at our best, as teachers, when we’re tired. Hoping for a restful night tonight!
