So, I had my first observation today. We did a trial run of the game I was going to play with their vocabulary words from the story we are reading before my professor arrived. I think it helped but some of the students didn’t want to play the second time around. I gave her a side note about that. I hope that everything is going to be good. I had a couple of the better students testing me big time. Mrs. C was not happy about that at all.
Since it is Friday, students get free time at the end of the day. I wish that I could say all of them were able to go out and play but those few who didn’t bring back their homework had the opportunity to stay in with me. One kid had to clean up the crayon shavings he shaved off his crayon onto the floor. Another wanted to wash all the students’ desks after he washed the crayon off his. The spelling test was very interesting. Mrs. C had left the room to do something quickly and by the time she came back, I had taken 5-6 tests from students who were talking. I had a bunch of kids fuming at me today. I gave them plenty of warning and they continued to talk during the test. For some reason, I am really tired today. This week hasn’t been too bad but I’m just dead.... I think it’s time for a nap!
