So anyway, today was easier than yesterday as I was in a room with other teachers today. I got more kids in today but not by much. Sooooo...
M is quiet and listens to the teacher, even when she wants to do something different. You can see the internal struggle with what she wants and whats going on at the time.She is also orderly and straightens things without much prompting.
I have a couple boys who I was so proud of...yesterday they wanted to go home after a couple hours but managed to control themselves and listened to me regarding not being able to go home and not being able to leave the room and run around. No tears and, though they got bored,regrouped with various manips.
M is a sweet boy who always smiles. He is used to school and seems to be independent and very friendly.
And Y... my sweet little Y. I met him last year when he "joined" my class last year. He just refused to go to his proper class and I took him in. Luckily Im in kg2 this year because yesterday he was crying and went home. Today I see him in the hallway and try to get him to the gym to no avail...I then asked him who his teacher was and he pointed to me. I gave him a hug and kiss and we went to the office and he is now in my class. Now If I could get him to be independent by the end of the year and he will be on point. He made my day today and Id like to think I made his,lol.
I worked a bit on my new room.Still have no idea what is going on with it or what they have to do before we can move over.By then, I hope they are used to a routine. So, as I type this, Im realizing that this is a blessing in disguise.
Tomorrow is hump day.So far so good.
