So it's October now. Wow those last weeks of September went really fast.
So the followup. Of course after I give them a really fun thing to do, we must go back to the old boring drill and practice. I think they kind of knew it too.
My problem apparently is that I keep talking to the front corner. And I realize it is a problem. I mostly talk to this corner because they are more talkative and they are right infront of me. I actually ignore the rest of the class. Complete failure. What am I doing?? Why am I doing that?
Today, my goal is to talk to everyone. I know it's going to be boring, but I'm going to try to stick to my objective/goal. I should really start practicing my lessons before I present. And doing the assignments. God I have so much stuff to do. Everytime I think of a task, I forget it later. Knowing that I have something to do later. Darn it..
They were really chatty yesterday too. I need to know what level I find appropriate for chatter and a level that is too much that students cannot do their work. These are all little things I need to improve on. Ahh.. Second thoughts on teaching again. Darn, right after my amazing day/observation.
So today, I taught my battleship lesson to the other grade 10 math. They didn't seem as energized as my kids were but they did the activity. Maybe because it was before lunchtime.
Memo.. I really like those Accounting kids.. Funny kids.
Other stuff, It's Friday! Volleyball game on Thursday. Yesterday we had such a good practice. They are totally getting better and better. Yesterday I also went to the Sir Ken Robinson talk thingy for an hour. I sat right infront of a column/wall. Not really a good seat. Plus I was annoyed by the people beside me cause they saved seats. I couldn't even see Sir Ken. :(.. I heard his stories tho..
