last friday i had my first ever substitute teaching assignment. bigla kong namiss ang classroom. bigla kong namiss mga bata. anyway, 2nd graders ung nakuha kong assignment that day. kakatuwa. ang kukulit, pero maayos na makipag usap kahit papano.
Patrick: Ms. P, i'm reading a third grade book and i'm on chapter 3. no one else has a third grade book.
Me: Good for you Patrick!
Corynn: Welcome to our school (then hugs me)
Me: Awww.. thank you sweetie.
Corynn: You're a nice teacher.
Me: Thank you. I try.
Me: Okay boys and girls. Today, we're going to write about carousels--what you felt when riding a carousel and what you saw around you when you rode a carousel.
Students' responses: food! monkey! zebras! bunny rabbits! people walking around!
Me: you guys see animals when riding a carousel?!
Students: yeah! at the zoo!
Me: I don't think they have carousels at the zoo.
Students: yeah they do.
Me: Oh okay, maybe they do.
Me: Okay so what did you feel when you were riding a carousel?
Students' responses: fun! happy! joyful! excited! peaceful! excellent! dizzy! vomiting!
Me: Wow, such big words boys and girls!
natutuwa ako pag mga bata ang tinuturuan ko. nagpa-power trip kasi ako eh. utos ako ng utos. gustong gusto kasi nila eh. nag-uunahan pang lumapit sakin. hahaha!
wala lang. i jotted this down to remember my first day subbing. fun stuff!
