Wednesday I played "librarian" and the teacher came in to review the plans. She had no voice and was coughing a lot. As a sub, I don't have any control over how CLEAN (germ free) the room will be when I arrive. When a sick teacher comes in to go over plans, I get really annoyed because I usually end up sick! Yep, it happened last week! I have asthma, so I am a major germ freak from October to March especially when I am subbing.
Here are a few random things I did this week when I was teaching.
I helped students use an index to find weather facts.
I also talked about how to take notes from the almanac.
Christmas around the Word
Grade 1 students learned what children celebrate in Italy.
I had never read this book. I loved it!
Basket full of math problems.
Students took turns working out a problem.
I can see this as a game for a math review.
Sample Problem below:
What I woke up to one morning:
It was so quiet when I took these.
More snow coming this week!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I was planning on finishing my holiday shopping... no such luck. I will not be subbing tomorrow. I am taking one more day to rest and get better.
Happy Reading everyone!
