Friday at the middle school. Day two of a two-day assignment. 6th period prep, but I knew I'd be covering an extra period. Until I got the horrible news...
Some emergency/problem/mix-up at the elementary schools, and they needed subs who had 6th period preps to divert. And I was on the hook.
I got sent to cover... kindergarten...
For an hour.
So, I really shouldn't complain. It wasn't that bad. They sort of followed directions.
They had this pipe thing that they spoke into, I suppose so they could hear themselves read out loud. Instead, they burped into it.
They were supposed to get into partners and read something back and forth for three minutes. I timed them. I didn't see any reading happening.
They had a math worksheet. The teacher showed it to me. I went to get it to pass it out, and I couldn't find it anywhere. And it had been right there before she left...
I was to read a Dr. Seuss book to them. We ran out of time before I could finish.
I was so glad to see the end of that day. So glad.
