Patience, patience, patience. Kids can be so disrespectful and ornery. But I like working with them anyways. This internship is going to be fun I think. I really like my teacher. Today I got to read a story out loud to the class. Luckily I had read it yesterday while I was waiting for my teacher to come back from an errand, otherwise I would have gotten caught up on some names probably. It was about an “egyptian cinderella” and had several Egyptian names in it including some of the gods and pharoahs etc. I’ve always been fascinated by Egypt, and studied it pretty intently in 5th grade, so I know alot of those names already, but reading a book out loud is intimidating already let alone doing it cold. We’re having computer time, and the kids are looking up stuff on mummies. I just got back from making copies. My teacher is doing well at keeping me involved, but there’s not a whole lot to do really. I need to start thinking about what I’m going to do when I should be in charge of the class. Luckily the days are short and we have a good structure going already. Reading and writing till 10 then computer time for a half hour then math till 11. I think I’ll probably use a Chinese theme. Things are kind of thrown together here, but the kids seem to be learning some good skills. Anywho, right after this I go work a double at the Bluegill. It’s going to be a busy day!
