WHY is it RAINING?
Today is our school walk-a-thon. It is a fundraiser for a neighborhood organization.
Obviously, the walking component will have to wait. BOO!
The walking component is really great, because the overexcitement of Halloween is soothed by the walking and resultant tiredness. Twenty one children in costumes on a rainy day does not excite, particularly since I haven't slept much this week and I'm still sick. BOO!
Well. We do have pumpkin muffins to make and bake, and half the class did string art while the other half did crayon shavings, so we have some art to do. I've got a phonics sort that is Halloween-themed, too. And we can check in on our water cycle experiment.
Or maybe it will magically stop raining, PLEASE.
I have a lot of Donors Choose boxes right now, but three of them are filled with unassembled furniture. So "Open the Box" would not be that exciting. We do have a few more thank you notes to bust out, though.
I cannot remember any rainy Halloween-observed days in my youth or during my teaching career. At least it should clear up this weekend. I have liberally passed out my address to students at my school (since I live a couple of blocks from it) as part of our household campaign to Restore Trick or Treating to Urban Areas.
