In at seven to check that the multi-activity room was ready. Chairs out, microphone one, laptop connected. Back to the classroom to discover that we were six people short. Eh? Six students absent? How did that happen? Well, it appears that when, on Thursday, I said: Do NOT be late. Be early! Some students took that to mean something totally different. In the end, five people made it in, and we were just one (Alejandro) down. A quick run through the changes necessary, and we were ready.
And nothing went wrong.
That’s the wonder of the audience not knowing what we were doing. Absolutely nothing went wrong! Arrrrrrrrr!
And everyone went home at the end. Well, I say everyone and I mean everyone, except for six boys. Having spent Thursday explaining that if anyone was going to be in school on Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday they need to bring something to do, it was a total surprise to discover…that no one had brought anything to do. In case anyone is wondering if they will miss anything if they don’t make it into school, let me assure you, you won’t.
We did the Maths Bee:
1st – Guillermo
2nd – Valerio
3rd – Ivan
And then we watched a bit of Fantastic Mr. Fox. After Spanish, we watched a bit more of Fantastic Mr. Fox. After recess, we watched Spain v Honduras.
Tuesday: If you are planning to come to school (and Sr. Martinez, your son does not have to come into school tomorrow, I promise you, he won’t miss anything), bring something to do. A game to play. A book to read. Something to do. Please do not spend the day asking me: What can I do? I will be in school at 6:50am, watching the Mexico v Uruguay match. If you come early, you can come into school and join me in the classroom. Please note, at 9am the match will finish. You will need something to do. Oh, you can also wear La Verde as well (or La Negra).
And the slideshow is here:
Oh, and if you go to the school’s website, there’s a survey that the school is asking all parents to fill out. Please go, and say nice things about me. Or, if you feel you need to, go and say bad things about me – it will help me improve as a teacher.
