Hi!

I am writing this the morning of Open House because I will be much more =
tired later tonight after smiling for 2 hours and teaching all day. =
First graders are painting today with tempera for the first time - 10 =
minutes to paint 20 min to clean up - ha ha!

One thing that I do that really helps keep me from falling asleep =
driving home is doing all my planning and developing lessons in the =
summer. I plan out every week and all the plans are in my planbook on =
my desk. Also I have each month's plans written out in chart that I =
carry with me to and fro. I can look at January now and know that I am =
doing my Black American Artist unit the 2nd week in Jan. for 3 weeks. =
It saves my plan time for hanging work, and getting supplies ready. I =
am much calmer knowing what is coming up next. I started doing this =
because I have a woodcraft business and I have about 2 craftshows a =
month on the weekends - sometimes more in the fall. Although I teach 3 =
1/2 days, I need the remaining days and evenings to make product for my =
business. I cant't be worrying about what am I teaching next. We, =
district art teachers have had a local foundattion grant each year for =
the last 4 years - this year Native American focus, so started planning =
in the summer. Yesterday we ordered some books for resources with some =
of our money. I am starting my unit mid Oct for about 4 -5 weeks. We =
did set up the grade level focus by regions of the country and will =
begin to plan out the lessons. This is really the only lessons I have =
to write and develop - everything else is in place. The planning helps =
the stress and energy level for me.
