So, for those of you who do not keep a blog or who do not use Blogger, well. Blogger recently changed their interface, and I'm not so sure I like it. Change is hard. This may take some getting used to.
Life has continued to be crazy busy, but for the most part I am doing well. You may or may not remember that there was a "typhoon" on Monday that cancelled classes for us. That was awesome, except for the one part where it meant that I wasn't able to get all the testing done that I needed to do in my elementary class. We will continue testing tomorrow and will hopefully be able to get caught up to where we need to be in another day or two.
Speaking of my elementary class, there is some good that comes from voicing concerns and complaints about students. Starting tomorrow, two of my students are going to be transferred out of my class into a brand new class that Gerald is creating. Sara (lucky girl!) gets to teach this class; I hear it will have about students in it. This change should make my class a lot easier to teach. I hope.
Also happening tomorrow, we will have three rotations in AK instead of 2! Currently, we have 20 students in AK which we've been splitting into two groups of 10. With this third rotation, we'll have two groups of seven and one group of six. I am also moving to a new section tomorrow and will start teaching Self and World Exploration. I better take a look at my lesson plans in the morning, because I've already forgotten what I was planning on doing... pray for me, yeah? I'm pretty nervous about "starting over," but at least this time I already know all of the kids. I'm also glad to be done teaching games. Kitchen wasn't so bad, but I think it will be good to get away from that one, too, for a while.
And now, this. For Halloween, the school is putting on this big production. I need to dress up, and I also need an activity (or two? I'm not real clear) to do with several different age groups. Any ideas? I'm drawing a total blank here. Halloween is totally not my thing.
