So yeah back to the grind over here and nothing fun about it. It might be more fun if I wasn't being yanked from my class all week (aka at the most prime time to be in my classroom) to administer the DIBELs test to my friend's classroom. Obviously we cannot be trusted to administer a test to our own students. Please! I'd rather see her kids do well than mine because I know how much she's kicking her butt to improve the literacy skills of her low group of kiddos. But, obviously teachers are selfish people right? Anyway, it's more fun this way because then I get to say to Eric, "I'm DIBELing Kathy's kids tomorrow" and he gets to laugh at home ridiculous that sounds. Yes DIBEL is a verb people. Anyway, enough about teaching, now that I actually post on my teaching blog you can go there for that :)
But I do have some good kiddo stories (teaching is not the same as kids, kids make great blog material... so I think anyway).
E: Ms. She Wears a Red Sox Cap, did you go anywhere over the vacation?
me: Yup, I went to Florida.
E: Oh, so is that why we had a vacation?
me: so I wish my friend, so I wish
IMAGINE the travel deals i could get if the vacation days revolved around my life :)
And another good one. As I'm DIBELing Kathy's kids today I'm trying to make conversation so I'm not just some mean scary teacher who has no sense of humor once the timer starts (which is actually the truth of me but anyway)...
me: so, your name is Michael, I love that name.
Michael: me too!
me: is your dad's name Michael too?
Michael: no, his name is just "Dad."
Hehe. So good. So good. See why I couldn't teach college? College students do not make such funny comments. Okay fine, I really can't teach college because I don't have and will probably never have a PHD. Oh well.
On an entirely different note, for you Barney Butter fans- you can win a year's supply of Barney Butter just by liking them on facebook! Might as well try, right?
Tell me some fun stories about how to make a Tuesday into a Friday. Now, GO!
