It’s Friday.


February 13th, 2009

You have no idea how glad I am that it’s Friday. This has, by far, been the longest week of the school year. The other kindergarten teacher was on vacation this week. So there was a sub. A terrible sub. It basically sounded like someone turned a pack of wild dogs loose in the next room which meant my class spent the week freaking out because they had to know what was going on over there. Plus it was really warm weather but we couldn’t go outside because the playground was a lake so they were cooped up and mad about that. Then computer class was canceled so they were mad about that. Oh and we had a lock-down drill. That entails squishing the class into a corner of the room and sitting in the dark with zero talking and when it’s over they ask about 4000 questions about WHY we have lock down drills even though I’d already spent 25 minutes answering the same 4000 questions and explaing that is was just a practice. We finally did get to go outside but they had been stuck inside for so long that being safe in the parking lot (on the way to the playground) was not a priority so much of today was spend practicing being safe. Oh and then there was Valentine’s Day. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day at school. We explain the holiday and offer them a chance to make friendship cards but that’s it. Even with no candy and no party they still get all wired and crazy. Tuesday will be better. Because it can’t be worse.
