I can see the finish line.. almost there..
So only 7 days left of full time teaching.. It's taking forever.. grr.. October and November just flew.. but this week is taking forever.. anyways.. I must update my week so far..
Acct10 - Review period for their exam.. Only like 6 of them actually worked.. I dunno.. My co-op was also in the room again. I didn't have the heart to tell him to leave..lol.. So he stepped in like 2 times to tell these boys to start working.. he totally noticed that I wasn't going to say anything.. like i said in a previous post.. there is a reason for it.. moving on..
Math10 - P4 - I booked the library so they could work on their 2nd draft. Only some of them could go on the computers. It's kind of ridiculous.. They need more computer labs in this school. Either that or a certain teacher should not be able to hog the lab for 4 frickin days!!.. like god.. during my period.. whatever.. They worked somewhat well. Considering it was the library. It felt really awkward.. since not every group even had a computer. Some were talking.. some were socializing. .some were working.. it was a complete gong show.. whatever.. Never again..
CCA9 - I introduced the new assignment to them. They were to research what makes a good website vs a bad one. Had them answer some questions. I also helped out a fellow intern/colleague with wordle in the computer lab beside me.. so that was fun.. and my class totally worked well.. it was good..
Math10 - P7 - I booked the computer lab.. for the last time in case most of them didn't have their 2nd draft done.. And I was right.. so we all headed up there. It was good.. most of them worked.. and all of them handed in their second draft. two of them were annoying me.. since they really weren't doing anything.. whatever.. I reminded them about 4 times.. to bring stuff so they could work on their poster.. tomorrow..
Monday.. was not a great day.. since I said whatever alot in most of the periods.. I really didn't give a care for some reason.. i dunno.. it just wasn't a good day.. whatever.. oh there I go again..
Acct10 - I gave them an exam. They were so annoying that day. They kept talking during an exam. Like what the heck?? Whatever. I'm still working on my classroom management..
Math10 - P4 - I gave them a work period on their poster. My fault.. I didn't tell them the day before to bring stuff.. I thought I could get a computer lab.. Nope.. totally did not.. so I told them to start drawing the lines onto their posters.. Most of them did that.. some of them told me that they were doing their project at home.. some of them said that their group member wasn't here.. grr.. so I kind of blamed them for not working well.. when it was my fault that I didn't tell them to bring stuff.. Anyways.. I told them that I was starting the new stuff on Wed.. and no more work periods.. we'll see..
CCA9 - P6 - gave them the website design assignment.. They had to each choose two pages to design for the school website. They worked so well.. none of them were playing games.. it was awesome.. Then the idea at the end.. I would combine them as one page.. So I hope this works..
Math10 - P7 - work period in the class on their poster.. All I can say is.. amazing.. 3 groups brought stuff to use for their poster.. the others didn't but they worked really well regardless.. One group.. I was so proud of because every person in the group had a job/was doing something.. So they definitely were getting more work periods.. cause they deserved it.. One of my intern/colleagues was having projector laptop problems.. so I helped her for a bit.. so I left for like 5 min.. and came back to a class that was quiet and working.. amazing.. really..
Oh yeah!.. during this math class.. another math teacher came in that is a friend of my co-op. he was wondering what my kids were doing in class.. he looked at my project assign.. and took a copy of it.. asked if I could teach it.. I found that funny.. since I am so tired of teaching already.. yeah right I''m going to teach another class.. I just gave him a copy and I'm guessing he's going to use it.. YES!!.. other teachers taking my resources!!.. I have completed another goal in my internship..
I also had a talk with my co-op about how the last weeks are winding down especially in my full time teaching. He asked me if there areas I could improve on in this last week.. that I could work on. I said that " I'm working on being more decisive" meaning that I tend to not stick to my word.. and let the kids make the decision.. I have no idea why I do this.. I think it's cause I like to take a majority poll to see what the class wants to do.. I also should work on my classroom management which I'm totally trying to do.. He just doesn't want me to regret not doing/trying things during my full time teaching.. Well.. I'm just trying to focus on getting through it rather then what I could be doing with my full time teaching.. whatever.. oh there I go again..
Acct10 - we were in the computer lab for notes.. two of them were annoying me.. they were repeatedly kept talking after I told them to stop talking.. They eventually stopped.. so that just took a while.. My notes were super short.. so yeah.. that was it..
Math10 - P4 - started a new chapter.. on polygons.. they worked well on the text assign.. but they talked me into giving them a work period since.. they didn't know that they were suppose to bring stuff.. (which was my fault). so i'm givng them a work period.. reminded them to bring stuff tomorrow.. so hopefully they do..
Lunch time.. - i had an intern meeting with our supervisor about the final evaluation and what to do before we leave.. like I need to get something for my co-op.. which I need to go shopping.. leave something for your school.. no idea what to do for that.. since I'm just a math teacher.. whatever.. and then we need to find another intern at another school and switch for a day.. so that'll be fun.. That reminds me since it's getting closer to the end.. I need to fit in that fave teacher activity..
CCA9 - they worked on their assignment.. one kid was not doing anything though.. I stressed to him that he's going to get a zero.. he did say he had a stomach ache.. so I tried to ease up on him.. we'll see about tomorrow..
Math10 - P7 - work period again.. amazing again!.. this time.. more of them brought supplies.. I love this.. okay.. I'm tired..
btw, the final evaluation is due on Dec 1!! that is crazy fast.. right?? my to do list is crazy long.. okay.. i need to stay at school longer more often.. I got so much done there then I do at home.. stupid couch making me sleepy.. night world.. I'll update Thurs and Fri later..
