My Resident is soloing this week and next. So far, I have entirely prepped out an end of the year project, kept all our plants alive during the heat wave, made a calendar set for next year, and spent five minutes and rather more dollars at an online vintage flash sale. (Let's just say that my vacation souvenir budget has been, erm, deducted in the amount of one fine dress.) I'm always there, and I watch what's going on or take notes/get involved when needed, but for the most part she's in charge.
Next week I will spend the time doing end of year assessment, so today is the end of the semi-holiday. And since it's the second week, I'll be able to focus entirely on the child I'm assessing (as opposed to having one ear open for drama - this is the longest period I've ever had a student teacher teaching solo in my room and it's a test in releasing control, that's for sure).
