>It’s That Time Again….
Hey friends! I’m just posting a short little thing for now…we’re in the process of getting ready for open house at work. Things we normally do slowly, over a period of a few weeks (changing out artwork, changing bulletin boards, regular cleaning, etc.) has to be done more quickly because it’s as if we’re doing two classes at the same time-the old and the new-and we have to make them both welcome and ‘at home’ without either of them feeling like they’re not part of the ‘group.’
On top of that, we have staff on vacay, maternity leave, out sick….and the floaters are spread pretty thin…so we can’t just do the ‘teacher’ stuff anytime we want cuz somebody has to be interacting with the kids!
So, to help keep us on track, Co-Teacher has stayed much later than her 3:30 clock out time and I’ve brought stuff home….
Plus, I’m trying like crazy to find out about my class orientation….so far without any luck. Hmmm.
However, the deep sea creature theme has been a massive hit. The book of pics is a fav and the two vids I downloaded yesterday were blockbusters. The kids screamed and exclaimed and yelled and pointed the whole time both of them played. They were thrilled to see fish that glowed and flickered and that were scary looking. They were even more excited that they recognized many of them. Thanks, Laughingwolf! I found out there’s a 12 foot spider crab species that lives off the coast of Japan. I got to see if I can find that vid again.
So anyway, all this to say that it’s an insanely busy time right now and I will get caught up on everyone’s blogs during the weekend.
Hope you’re all having a great week and take care! See ya soon!
