Short weeks!

October 20 - In-service day
October 27 - In-service day
November 3 - all day field trip
November 10 - PD day -

So that's 4 Fridays in a row we don't have class. 4 short weeks. Absolutely ridiculous! I've had to cram 5 days worth of ELA lessons into 4 days for a month! It's not like I have so much extra time to kill that I can easily fit 5 days worth of instruction into 4 days!
Ugh. We have one Friday, then Thanksgiving! 3 full weeks of school in 2nd quarter.

I hear you! We had a 4 day week this week, a 3 1/2 day week next week, and then the following week is conferences so half days all week followed by the week of for Thanksgiving. I might as well not teach in November...

If it's a 4 day week, I teach for a 4 day week. No matter how they cram them together, or space them apart, we still have the same # of days to teach a year (180 give or take...). Why do you feel you have to cram 5 days into 4? I wouldn't put that much pressure on yourself.

Are you supposed to do that cramming? Is it weekly story dependent or something that you have to cram the five days into four? Otherwise, I would take eliza's suggestion. If you have the three days before Thanksgiving, you can make up some time there.
