Monday to Friday:  I will be honest to all those that read this.  The past weeks have been a complete bust as far as adhering to my curriculum.  My classroom, the auditorium, has been used by so many different parties other than my class that I have had to totally re-adjust the curriculum that I had planned.  This week is no exception.  I will do the best I can with what I have and hopefully get to the lighting portion of my curriculum but I do not hold much hope to do this.
