Haiku Friday

nine more teaching days
i think i can make it through
kids are energized
major stress headache
two motrin i hope will cure
and lots of water
analyzing my
emotional reactions
where do they come from?
anger and control
come from other emotions...
what is really wrong?
figure it all out
fix the core issue, move on
be happy, love life
Ok, that's all for today. My head is pounding and I can't imagine how I'm going to cope with the noise of my 28 third graders today....given we're having a big graduation party for my student teacher. Yikes. Wish me luck. Then....leave a comment about how much you loved my blog, think I should quit teaching and become a full time writer....NOT!
But seriously, please go visit Playgroups are No Place for Children and send blogger love all over the place. There are some pretty good ku's out there and Jennifer's is hilarious today!!!

Oh, the kids are so crazy. I'm not sure why my 2nd and 4th grader are even doing this last two weeks of school.

Hang in there!

It's gotta feel good getting so close to the end of the year! I loved the last part of your haiku - easier said than done, but it's always the right thing.

Sorry for the headache...hope it gets away soon! Try to relax...and slow down a bit.

Sending you happy thoughts!

Oh how I loved and dreaded the end of the year! The kids were always so much more rambunctious!

And thanks for the kudos on today's 'ku!

I know a few teachers who are counting the days until summer vacation. LOL!!

I'd like to invite you to take part in a new meme about children called "Silly Monkey Stories." It starts on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend!!!

I so feel your pain. The kids were insane the last few weeks of school. Enjoy your well-deserved two months off.
