I landed a two day job for today and tomorrow in a 2/3 English only split class. I have one student I have to watch constantly but the other 21 kiddos were a delight. So quiet. I sometimes felt like just talking because it was too quiet!
It was my first time with them and we were kind of eyeing each other first. Truthfully, I was a tad bit nervous and I don't know why, but it just happens lol. I introduced myself, told them I had a cat named Checkers, I'm an only child, my likes (they were excited I loved reading!), and then we got to work. I walked over to the teacher's desk to get my materials and I heard a girl whisper, "Oh whew! I like her!" Hahaha. After that, it all went smooth although, holy cow, some of them are slow pokes! But somehow we wrangled an extra 3 minutes and I did Mad Libs.
I don't know what happened, but the other day I had a mad rush of ideas flow through my head and I quickly wrote them down! I'm loving the new unit I'm working on (3/4 of the way done!) Want a sneak peek? Here's the cover:
It's some literacy activities for K-1. I love!!!
I've already got 3 days scheduled next week, all 1/2 days lol. It doesn't hurt that a sickness is going around right now, with a cold/fever/cough/tummy thing. Ick!
