The "wonderful" Moroccan bath left my pores open and Ive been congested all weekend.Even so,I pressed forward and vowed to have a good day. Besides, we had measurement activities today and I was too interested in how that would go.
Walked into assembly. "wow,we have a class full today". Simultaneously I noticed the Arabic teacher wasnt there. Had a feeling she wouldnt be if she wasnt there by now as I was late to assembly. I told the VP I would be good but would take her up on her suggestion to come to her if I needed to.
Today was a pretty good day,for the most part things went well and even if there was a mess in the room the class was pretty cool. These are the things that happened,lol:
- "frisked" the kids today after magnets "disappeared". me:"MAFI MAGNETS,MAFI SAHA!!" Only then did he tell me with with a smile that they were in his bookbag.
- water was aaaaaaaaall over the floor as I introduced the water table today.They had fun though
- They broke the globe.The one we JUST got for our science kit supplies.Cant find the piece to put it back together. I cant believe them!
- Everyone was quiet today on the carpet for about 15 mins after I changed the tone of the room. "HABYBI (whole class,long I in middle),FIIIIIL HAAAALIIIIIIKAA AHLAN! 1,2,3. SHUUU HAATHAAA? (points to floor all over classroom). CLEAN UP THIS ROOM.MAFI CLEANUP,MAFI BAYT! and it was probably the fact that my voice is more raspy with this congestion so they knew I meant business,lol.Maybe they thought I would keep them forever.MUCH,MUCH more effective than asking if they wanted me to call their parents!
Possible field trip tomorrow. I hope to get more things accomplished than I did last week. They love learning and when we have a productive day I can go home knowing I did a good job and have a nice smile on my face.
