"Today is a combined day."
I found these words on today's lesson plan. I couldn't believe my eyes. I rechecked, and sure enough, the date on the lesson plan was for today. What a wonderful surprise.
As a sub, many times I go into a class not knowing what to expect. I must be flexible. But today I was covering for a teacher I had subbed for many times, so I had a fair expectation of what my day would be like. I knew that the students would be mentally gone already. I knew that the lesson plans would be adequate. But I expected to be there until 3:15.
It's nice when I get one of the good surprises (I sure get enough of the other).
In case you're keeping track, there are two more days left of school.
