This has been a __________ week! What would you fill that blank in with?? Well this sister says "exhausting!" We had PD on Monday so it should be a short week but....yes there is always a "but." But my mom had to have surgery. I am sure most of you can relate to a family member having surgery. It is truly the most scary, stressful time....and add on to that I am a worrier. Can any of you relate to that as well?? I worry, worry, worry. Today was surgery day so I took a personal day. Taking time off is not easy when you are a teacher but being with my family during this time is #1 on the important list right now. So I made sub plans and prepared for a few hours to make sure everything was ready to go so my class was in good hands. I am so thankful today's surgery went well and my mom is resting. I decided I am also taking tomorrow off to be at the hospital...didn't totally plan for that but that is the only place for me to be SO....ENTER emergency sub plan pack! I absolutely love posting things on TPT that give ideas to/help others but wow when it helps me out and I realize just how useful something is, I am double happy! Tomorrow my kiddos will be working from our Rainbow Fish Emergency Sub Plans. They can be found here. The best part is all I had to do was provide a book and all of these activities from my sub tub and tomorrow is a GO! The second best part is we are learning about the "theme/message" in a story and this is a GREAT story for this!! Perfect. Time. For. This!
