This has always been my motto. Until today.
So, today, I went to organize my classroom. I counted 7 supplementary books to go with my text. Seven. XII. Is this what it’s come to? What in the world was I doing in 8th grade English class? I certainly don’t remember that many books.
There are Literary Response Journals, Selection Support, Spelling, Daily Language Planners, Write Source, etc. I can’t seem to wrap my brain around the amount of stuff I have.
I took a corner, made a space, and started putting novels up on the shelf. I made a little corner for my stuff, my degrees, my special books. And still…still…
Something about this is scaring me. Perhaps it’s the fact that I have never read the anthology, but I don’t think so.
