Wednesday News

I've realized that I must make a more concerted effort to write in this blog on a regular basis. I really do want to, and when I have time I find myself choosing something else to do. I'll work on getting better :)

I'm not subbing today. No sub job yesterday either. I have been working 4 days a week for the last three weeks and it's been great! I'm disappointed no phone calls came this morning though. I do have two days lined up already for next week - I guess this is just an off week for work. My plan is to go to at least two more local schools in Seminole county today to drop off my substitute i.d. number and see what comes out of that. It's always good to have options! I had a great kindergarten class on Monday... definitely one of the best behaved group of kids I've experienced. They were so adorable! The more I'm in the classroom, the more I want my own so I can have routines and procedures run the way I'd like them to. I also want to decorate my own classroom! Maybe one day soon...

Spring is just a couple days away! I have been in a spring decorating mood lately. I bought flowers for the centerpiece on our table and some spring scented candles. I've also been working on spring crafts. Since I didn't babysit Saturday, I took advantage of the time to be creative and try out some projects I've seen online and in magazines. When I finish them, I'll post pictures. They're real simple and fun - I also feel productive while I work :) I would like to work on them some more today because my dad is coming into town this weekend on business and it'd be nice if he could take them home to my mom as a "Welcome Spring" gift. I told Matthew we need to take a spring picture and send it as a postcard to family... we better do it soon!

I'm positing a photo of me and two of the students I tutor at a Harlem Globetrotters game. I have 5 students now! It certainly makes my nights busy each week... the money is good because we need it and it is over the end of May. I was approached by another tutor with the opportunity to attend the Harlem Globetrotters game over at UCF for free. We even got to sit up in a box/suite! Matthew came along with me and we picked up three of my students for the event. It was a lot of fun and the show had a lot more humor than I expected. The first photo is of a brother and sister (K and 2nd grade) that I see every week. They fell in love with the Veggie Tales "Cheeseburger" song I had in my car... and we listened to it well over 5 times. The funny part is that they wanted to sing it just like Matthew did, all crazy and loud. I got it on video :) The other photo is of Matthew and the kids walking to the game. The child that's cut off is one of my other students - poor guy just had braces put on the day before and was a bit sore. Matthew was a great help all night and patiently endured the brother and sister's endless chatter, questioning, and mocking. It was great!

Cute pictures! That's funny about the "cheeseburger" song! And definitely post pitures of your projects - I'm curious now! I could use a couple projects myself for my days off. *smile*

You're tutoring sounds like it is rewarding! And I know what you mean about the classroom thing. It was so relieving to set up routines and procedures that worked for me! Can't wait to see your craft pictures.
