At the end of this week, it has not been too bad. The weather has been cooler and then warmer, making it hard for the students and teachers to concentrate. Mrs. C has been a ‘whiny girl’ and not taken the kids out for recess because it has been so warm.
Back to School night went well. We had six families come to visit the classroom. It was very different to see the students in the classroom late in the evening. The parents, aunts and uncles seemed interested in what their child was doing during the day and they asked the children a lot of questions. Mrs. C brought up a couple test scores if the parents asked about them. There was some strategic talk about homework and getting reading scores higher. Other than that, people came in visited and left. That hour passed quickly.
Classes from BSU have been going ok. We have a lot of information that is given to us at class that makes sense because we have been in the classroom experiencing them first hand. I think that helps us understand more about what’s going on in our classes. It’s Friday and that is always a great day of the week!!
