My Sabbatical is Over!

Wait, I was on a sabbatical?  You mean you thought I'd fallen off of the face of the blogosphere?  NEGATIVE!  I won't go into the myriad of excuses I could conjure up because I think we've all been to Overwhelmville.  And my blogging wasn't the cause nor a contributor.  However, I can say it was certainly missed by me as a creative outlet getaway escape from reality.

SO, after a terribly challenging day from school related events/people/(mis)communications, I'm back.  :)  And BOY did I need to be.  I packed four, yes FOUR bags of things to bring home tonight because I had every intention of taking a mental health day tomorrow.  Because that would show those colleagues, wouldn't it?  Take the day off.  Let a sub come in and teach my plans.  Hope for the best.  Because the only people who have paid the price for said colleagues' (mis)communications so far are the children and my inconveniences (and of course, the poor trees that died in vain).  Why not take the day off, right?  Grrrr, teacher guilt kicking in in 3, 2, 1.

After deciding that the children have already paid a high enough price, I decided to finish something I've started (CHECK) and I'm glad that I did.  If you missed my previous posting with Amy Benjamin's video, I recommend you check it out.  Regardless, I finally finished creating posters that have the basics of her teachings of Parts of Speech.  They are available to you for FREE (my favorite type of printable) below:
A Verb is
An Adjective Is
An Adverb Is
A Preposition Is

LOVE your posters!!! I can't believe I only just found your blog - I've been "repinning your pins" for a while now. Can't wait to "follow" your journey ...
