So, I went to the Orthopedic surgeon on Tuesday and received great news. I tore my anterior miniscus and did NOT fracture my Tibia! The surgeon told me that ER Docs are notorious for misinterpreting X-Rays.
I was happy to hear that my leg wasn't broken, but I am not happy about the cheesy insurance my district has. I can't wait for the bills to start rolling in! Anywhoo.......I need to keep it iced this weekend as I really overdid it this week. Speaking of which, my students were very productive this week! On the Ancient Egyptian front at School #1, the paper mache' mummies were basecoated with student's choice of gold or silver tempera, the 3-D tombs are coming along nicely, the Egyptian Oasis Gardens are finished and the mummy case paintings and the Cartouche projects are ready to mat with black paper.
At School #2, the Digeridoos are complete, the X-Ray critters with color switcher markers are INCREDIBLE, the boomerangs are okay, could've been brighter, and the Tiwi Island fabric designs will start stamping(printing) next week. The crayon/paint scraper critters just need their punched dot borders to be added next class.
Poor School #3, the little country school with 4 combo classes! I have introduced all of the Northwest Coast projects, but they have missed two Mondays due to scheduling and Labor Day so there is not much to share.
I hope all of you out there in the Blogosphere have a relaxing, restful weekend!
