First week of teaching! After the baby scare, I was not too keen about being far away from the phone. I felt calm though- and the baby seems fine.
I have 102 students this year. It is the first time in seven years I have been in charge of a classroom. Getting used to all of the personalities is a feat. Repeating myself four times in a day without getting boring is even more difficult. My position has me teaching the same thing to four different classes. Change up is not in the cards- since we have three sets of twins.
You should have seen their eyes with Google Earth. It was the first time I experienced a bunch of kids whipping out a pencil to write down information on their own.
Monday we begin a project of finding their vacation spot on a map and on Google earth. They then have to write or draw (or for some art phobia people like me- find a picture) about where they went and where they would like to go in the future. Imaginations run wild- that is the key!
