How many left?? 5 weeks??
So another week done... Short week kind of. So having Wednesday off was a nice day off..
Let's start with Monday. Also report card marks due in the morning.. done like dinner
Accounting 10 - work period. not my turn yet..
Math10 - P4 - we covered arithmetic means. They were really chatty. I'm slowly still working with this class. Getting them used to me and my teaching style. And getting to know them. I don't know if they know what I'm talking about or if it's clear to them. I also don't know if they even like me.. i think they still want my co-op teaching their class.. grr.. I think because this is "his class".. Accounting, I have team-taught with my co-op, so the kids know me a little bit. And CCA9, I took over a while ago.. maybe that's why they're used to me..
anyways.. CCA9 - P6 - Podcast editing. Got one group done editing. Rest still workin on it.. Podcast due on the 16th.. Not sure if I'll let the class listen to them though.. we'll see..
Math10 - P7 - Arithmetic series, Covered the sum formulas.. and sigma notation. of which after my co-op informed me that didn't need to have covered sigma stuff.. cause they were confused.. eventually i got them to understand steps.. so hopefully that helped..
afterschool - I think I went to musical practice this day.. it could have been tuesday.. can't remember..
Accounting10 - computer lab.. free time.. working on leftover assignments.
Math10 - P4 - remembrance day service.. it was good.. didn't really flow.. but there were some really good singers..
CCA9 - P6 - working on podcast again.. loud bunch today.. actually told a kid to "shut up".. was I right?? was I allowed to?? I don't know.. did I handle it right?..
Math10 - P7 - review period.. exam on Thursday.. I think I should've reviewed everything with them better.. Like a summary kind of. Allowed to bring in one cheat sheet.. plus they had remembrance day to study as well.. They should have done good.
after school - definitely went to musical practice today.. I was to stay until 7:00 for our girls' volleyball windup at school.. We were going to have a pizza party and a movie in my classroom because my co-op said we could. So at about 6:00.. I was starting to set up the stuff.. projector, getting the pop and napkins.. then.. one of the caretakers sees me and asks me.. are ya planning something? I said, "we're having a pizza party".. he's like "uh, it wasn't on the schedule.. I'm not coming back in here to clean up.. this stuff can't sit until Thursday. (b/c no school tomorrow)".. so at this point.. I was in an awkward situation.. not sure how I could deal with it.. I said "well my co-op said I could come in and do it.. ".. he said ".. well it needs to be on the schedule.. anything after hours.. needs to be booked..".. how the hell was i suppose to know??.. I mean we would clean up everything.. Although I didn't tell him/ask this.. then he left.. I really hate these kind of situations where I'm forced to change something.. So the only thing I could think of was cancel the party.. it kind of sucked.. so the other coach and I called the girls and told them it was cancelled and we would work out another time next week. most of them didn't sound dissapointed so.. maybe they forgot it was happening in the first place.. whatever.. so I went home..
Thursday - short day
Accounting10 - I started Ch7 notes with them.. quite a lot of terms.. used prezi.. lol..
Math10 - P4 - arithmetic series.. again same thing.. they were confused about sigma notation.. i tried to give them steps.. not sure if they quite got it.. we will see..
CCA9 - P6 - working on podcast again.. 2 groups left to finish editing.. everyone else.. free time..
Math10 - P6 - exam.. it was a pretty basic exam.. they should've been able to complete it within the 45 mins.. 5 of them stayed 15 minutes after class..
Musical stuff at 7:00.. fun.. felt a bit awkward since.. I don't do anything.. not sure if I'll continue to go to every rehearsal.. we'll see.. I'll ask the other girls..
Accounting10 - they had an exam.. sort of.. report cards also went out today this period..
Math10 - P4 - review period.. this time I reviewed everything.. Hopefully that helped them get the stuff.. I don't know.. they have a weekend to study.. we'll see..
CCA9 - P6 - last period to work on podcast.. most of them had free time.. but they worked quietly.. so that was good..
Math10 - P7 - I marked their exams.. I felt the first question had some questions that they've really seen in their assign.. so I'm going to modify it a bit.. and omit those questions.. so that should bring their mark up a bit..
- we covered lines and angles today.. pretty basic definition stuff..
That was it.. end of week 11.. it's just going by so fast.. I still have some stuff to do though in the meantime ;
- teacher certificate application
- school divisions applications
- ea intern application
- final evaluation..
Until next weeks.. signing off..
