If things go right, nothing malfunctions, the kids are terrific and I end the day non-stressed and happy, does that make for an uninteresting blog entry?
If so, well…too bad!
These 4th graders were fun to be with today. The lesson plan was clear; the kids responded well to direction; were cooperative and happy; and as a result, made a stress free day for me.
At the end of the day, I rewarded them by reading a few interesting facts from a book I found on the teachers desk: “The Truth About Poop”. Even I learned something new today.
For example: Did you know wolverines will poop on a leftover meal to discourage other animals from scavenging it before they come back to finish it?
Me neither! Who knew? I feel compelled to discover more truths about poop and I will get to do just that.
I sub the same class again on Monday! I almost feel guilty about getting paid for today. Note I did say “almost”.
