Whew! It's so great when the administrators catch you and your class being on task and learning just before a holiday. That should earn you extra points.

I had a similar situation, but not an observation. AP admired some of my students' T-day work as we were hanging it in the hall. AP began to quiz my students about the 1st Thanksgiving and my kids NAILED IT! 1st graders. They told about the pilgrims and why they came to America, who helped them and even the exact number of pilgrims that came and the number that died during the "long hard winter". They were great.

Yay for you & your class! My grade level partner had one yesterday. I think P was trying to get it in under the deadline she had.

phew!


our P sent an announcement out the other day to remind us that he would be dropping in from time to time...blah, blah...

a couple days later he mentions to me: oh, yeah: i did your informal eval that day i came in....

you mean that day i was working with a group at the back and couldn't get more than 1 sentence out and was continually interrupted by the rest of the class (the class that can't shut up or stay seated for more than 5 minutes)???!!! that time when i looked up at you and made a face and just shrugged as if it say: Every. Damn. Day. great.

i said, well, you get what you get.

not too worried about it because i'm too old for such things but also because he knows what an insane group this is! (and just in case he forgets, i keep reminding him!)

I've been worrying off and on since mine was supposed to be first week of October and hasn't happened yet. I figure a few days before Christmas break, maybe???

Whatever. I'm more prepared now than I was in October.

My district has a half day on the Wednesday before Thsnksgiving. We are dismissed at 1:00. One year a P came in my room at 11:30 to observe me. Really?!

I'm sure I'll get that right before a vacation break too. It never makes sense to me.

I'm working on becoming an Administrator and to tell you the truth, I will have my teachers sign up for an observation before I come in on a "gotcha" moment. I always hated admins who walked through the day before a vacation, it isn't fair. They should know that students are not focused during those last few hours before break. If I have to do a walkthough before the holidays/breaks I'll just say "Happy "whateverholidayitis" and then leave. I know how nerve wracking that day is before a break.

Ugh!!!

I know as a literacy coach when I had to do observations, I had teachers sign up for a pre-conference. It was for me to help them plan but also to psych them up that they can do the lesson that they are planning. My goal is to support rather than to nag nag nag.
