Today was my first day of actual teaching. I spent a long time planning so I felt really prepared today. S even told me she was impressed by how organized I was (she is extrememly organized!!). My lessons went well--I did reading stations, a spelling pretest, and previewing a mystery story that they will be working on. Since I'm still not teaching math I took that time to work on the smart board. I made a jeopardy game, some sentences with typos that they will fix, and a game kind of like taboo. We're going to be doing them all this week. I love smart boards!!
I got all of my valentine's from last week today. Lots of yummy candy (that Julia ate most of) and some cute cards.
I made a girl named S really mad today. She had one of those stupid paper fortune tellers and was distracting some of the other kids so I told her she had to put it away. She didn't so I took it from her. I gave it back to her later but she was still mad at me. All the kids are supposed to high five me before they leave but she stormed off. She gets up at 4 every morning to go to day care so I am used to her getting crabby at the end of the day so I wasn't that suprised by her reaction. She'll be over it by tomorrow.
