While I'm not that big of an 'Annie' fan, the song makes a point. Tomorrow has all the potential of being bright and sunny. Or, if you're an Anne of Green Gables fan, "Tomorrow is always fresh, with no mistakes in it."
If you haven't already guessed, today was not the best of days. It had all the potential of being a rockin' awesome day. I had a meeting this morning that caused me to have to split my class after related arts and into math. When I came back to collect my students, the other first grade teachers raved about how well my class behaved! They were wonderful! They were perfect! They were angels!...
Then we went to lunch and my little angels fell from grace. To quote our cafeteria monitor, "Mrs. Delk, I'm sorry but I can't pick out one student out of your class that was doing the right thing. They were just really off today."
OUCH! Break a teacher's heart!
Now, while I could make excuses for my children, (they haven't gotten to go outside because of the rain, they didn't get to see me a lot this morning, maybe the lunch was spiked...) I won't. The truth is that my students know how to behave, and they chose not to.
So, this afternoon my students spent their recess time doing extra science and then behavior sentences. Tomorrow, they will write our cafeteria monitor an apology letter, along with wonderful behavior during lunch.
Now, on to brighter things. Our fables and folktales chart is coming along. We are filling out the chart as we read our stories, along with the lesson or moral the story teaches.

I love ya, tomorrow!
You're always a day away!
