New School Year – Day 37

I couldn’t get the projector to work. Generally aiming the remote at it from the teacher’s desk is sufficient. One Kindergartner jumped up and came over and said, “You have to stand over here!” and he went to the middle of the carpet directly underneath the projector. Sure enough – that worked – I thanked him and gave him a high-five. Who says 5 year-olds aren’t smart? Not me.

Today I started with only half a day of work, but I’m thankful that I was asked to stay for the second half as well. Monday I had to take off for personal reasons, and Wednesday through Friday the schools are closed for Thanksgiving, so at least I got one full day. And – it was a good one.

This teacher is super-organized and it was a delight to work in her room. The kids were very cooperative (as far as 5-year-olds go) and I enjoyed teaching them. Last week, the song “Five Little Bluebirds in the Nest” popped into my head and I taught it to a class – so I taught it to this one today as well, and later on added – you guessed it – the “Pizza Hut Song” too. I’m thinking that the subtitle to my book about subbing should include something to that effect. 🙂

Have a blessed Thanksgiving everyone! I watched about 5 minutes of a Macy’s parade with the kids (it was shown in their music class) and I thought: one of these years I want to go downtown and see the Detroit parade again – just for old times’ sake. Apparently, since Hudson’s is no more, it is sponsored by Art Van Furniture.
