In more than one way….1- its the middle of the week. and 2 its the middle of this class. 3. its the middle of all of my classes this summer. So, in order to celebrate, I had fish tacos and a beer, and am about to tackle some fro-yo I pilfered from the cafeteria at lunch like a destitute college student.
So, I am now 2.5 weeks into 5 weeks of classes ( between the 2 programs)- the midway point is a good time to reflect and regroup- you know, “assess”. This is technically formative assessment, with a little summative in there already, because I am just THAT intuitive I am sure I got some of this stuff down.
1- So far ( formative) the class topic is a little slanted/ not as advertised. I have learned I need to be clear in my goals as a teacher to the kids
2- Sitting all day sucks. This isn’t going to change so its Summative. At first I was like, “well my kids are only in their seats for 40 minutes,” but ACTUALLY, No they are not, they are in their seats for at least 40×5 a day- sometimes more. Poor kids. 😦 I don’t just sympathize with them, I empathize with their butts, their brains, their annoyance. (I also just clarified the difference for myself so another victory!) I will need to do something to change that in my classes effective Sept 1 2015!
3- I dunno. I will get back to this list later, I need to go get my sheets out of the dryer!! MOM! I MISS YOU SO MUCH!! ( it NEVER gets old!)
Ok I am back, but I have lost my train of thought, so I will leave you with this note.
During the school year, Wednesday is my funny day. I’m not sure how that happened, but its just generally true. Ask anyone- Even mom: she sees me after school. The humor just spills out of me- I can’t contain myself. Unfortunately, here, in Denver, nobody has gotten a chance to experience my funny sense of humor. I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t get it. Over their heads. But I did crack myself up a few times today so yay! I am already celebrating with the fro-yo!
Also, I just googled as I was looking for pictures of something appropriate to add to today’s mostly boring blog.
I hit the motherload with this one:
Click on the picture! its got great stuff!!!!
Baaahahahaaaaaaaa, so my Wednesday funny is still there! Even here in the Rocky Mountains! I thank John Denver for this.
