Procrastination. It's something we all tell our students not to do; yet here I am. I am procrastinating reading Cry and creating the curriculum for it. I think I'm just a little overwhelmed and not sure where to start, which makes sense. I know Common Core isn't that different from the State Standards, but everyone is making such a big deal about it, I feel like this unit has to be perfect! :/
I also feel a little bit of guilt about being lazy and "not working"...but then I justify with "Isn't that one of the perks of teaching? Getting the summer to take a break?". But I do; I feel guilty for not working on the school stuff. [Well if you count looking at Pinterest and other blogs for teaching ideas, then yes, I've been hard at work.]
Anyway...what are your thoughts on working over the summer? Should I feel guilty? Everyone's sitting around and I'm relaxing and reading fun books, looking at Pinterest, etc. Oh, and blogging, that keeps me distracted ;)
Have a great day!
