The kids were especially energetic today. One boy even got his foot stuck under his chair this morning. As my co-teacher taught, my paraprofessional circulated, I calmly instructed him to remove his shoe, moved the desk, he shifted a little and his foot was free. How did that happen? Who knows! You gotta just act first and then smile later sometimes. I'm learning that working with six graders is a lot different than the usually over-age seventh and eighth graders I'm used to teaching.
That and I was asked to write a recommendation for a girl. She wants to join the school's esteemed robotic club. Two claps! (That's one of the props my co-teacher and I use with our classes.)
Okay, time for happy hour and dinner.
