Positive Fridays - Week of October 8th, 2012

Wow, yet another week has flown by.  I have had another great week of subbing so let's get started!

Friday I had the opportunity to sub in 2nd grade for my friend in the morning and 3rd grade in the afternoon.

  • The secretary and office clerk are always so welcoming with a smile on their face!
  • A 4th and 6th grader saw me and waved and called my name, which makes me feel extra special!
  • When I opened the door to let 2nd grade in one student was at the door with her mom and she came right up to me and gave me a hug and a big smile.  Her mom told me that she was so excited I was subbing for them for the morning and I was all she talked about the afternoon before!  So sweet, what a way to fill my bucket first thing in the morning!
  • I enjoyed teaching them about Columbus!
  • It was great to see my wonderful friend who left me with easy plans.
  • The kids told me they wished they had me the rest of the day, so sweet!
  • 3rd Grade was a really easy day because I picked them up at lunch, they had a restroom break while I read The 39 Clues one of my favorite series of books, did a little bit of Vocab practice, had Junior Achievement come in for an hour, recess, and time to pack up and go home!
  • I didn't get much time to bond with them, but one girl did tell me shortly after I arrived that I was the best teacher ever so sweet again!
The next day I worked was not until Wednesday.  Yet again I had 3rd grade, but this time an hour away and I will have this bunch again on Tuesday next week!
  • The secretary was very kind and welcoming, as was the office staff up front!  It made me feel good coming in to a school I only had the chance to sub at once last year.
  • This was a lively group of students who were filled with laughter at times.  I love hearing kids laugh!
  • One girl asked me how to spell my name and then gave me a cute picture of a Pineapple and she had such a huge smile on her face as I thanked her.
  • The children worked hard on a Math Test, reading, and plant review to help with their test the next day.
  • They did an excellent job of helping lead me to different areas of the school as I am still learning how to get from point A to B!
  • The teachers, including their teacher was very welcoming and supportive!
Thursday, I had the chance to sub back at the school I was at on Friday, but this time in 4th grade!  4th time at the school this year as well.
  • As always I was welcomed into this school by the office clerk and secretary both happy to see me!
  • The children came in and one remembered me from last year and was so cheerful and happy to see me and gave me a hug, a parent who dropped his daughter off was so kind and wished me a great day and weekend, another child came in who I had actually taught in 2nd grade and she was so excited to see me and immediately hugged me.  These two girls were so well behaved all day!
  • The children worked very hard on Multiplication, Spelling, Reading, Latitude and Longitude, and Food Webs.
  • They were respectful and polite to me.
  • I saw the 2nd graders and helped take them to lunch when my friend had to help a student in her class and they were so happy to see me again!
  • The 4th grade teachers, ESE teacher, and speech teacher were very supportive, kind, and helpful.
  • I came home and had a call for an interview, which will be Monday at 9:30am at a school 20 minutes for where I live for an instructional assistant position.  Prayers are greatly appreciated as this could lead to a regular teaching position in the future.

Thanks for hoppin' by Hopkins' Hoppin' Happenings.  Keep on smiling!
