Anyone else have a hard day today?
It started with me driving to school. We got snow last night-this hardly ever happens here. But it did today, this was the worst the roads have been all year. (I nearly called school today and said that I couldn't get there and needed a half day sub. But I didn't because I had student #25 coming for the first time today.)
Then my morning started with a jewel throwing a tantrum and having to send her to the office before she got physical and hurt someone.
Then they had PE-THANK goodness for specialist time!
But on the way to lunch one little guy got physical with the little jewel from earlier in the day. So he got to eat lunch in the office and visit with the principal.
After lunch jewel from earlier in the day decided that instead of doing her work she would use the computer. The second time that I went over to turn the computer off she actually spit on me. GROSS. So to the office she went again-this time for the rest of the day.
Oh I left out the student who I caught drawing on my floor with a marker today-apparently she was mad at something but she wouldn't say what.
New student was super easy-fit in with the class, completed work, was quiet (HOORAY!), feels like he has been there all along.
I was missing a few key players today. Hopefully when all 25 are there it will all work well.
We talked about Leprechauns, the president and the alphabet today. Sounds random but it all worked well.
My kiddos are loving learning sign language! We have learned our colors. We are now working on the letters and the months. I love watching them try so hard to make their hands copy what I am doing. ( I wish they were getting to have the kinder experience I did with getting to communicate with a deaf student. That was definitely a huge part of my education k-4. I loved it!)
Sorry for the rant. If you made it this far you deserve an award. Not a funny post today. Tomorrow I am determined to participate in "What's Not Wrong Wednesday."
I hope everyone is having a great week! I am off to make my April calendar pieces because if construction paper flowers can't put a smile on this face then we have serious problems :)
Oh and if you don't read Journey of a Substitute Teacher then you should because she posted a poem today that made me feel much better!
