Even in your greatest attempt to keep you classroom or lesson plans organized, things may not go as planned. Things are going to be forgotten. Many projects will be a flop. Kids will not respond the way you anticipated. The weather will be stormy for that outdoor, walking field trip. Your markers will dry up… It isn’t the end of the world. The best-laid plans are often abandon. Try to take things in stride. At the end of each day, look around you. Do you have smiling, happy children! Did you loose anyone? (Hopefully you answered “No” on that question). Don’t get to caught-up in the little details. DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. You will walk away at the end of the day a happier person if you can let some of those details go.
