Drumroll...I taught science today! Woohoo! When I announced that we were FINALLY doing a science experiment, the kids actually cheered. It made me so happy :) Anyways, we did a short and sweet lab to practice applying the scientific method by checking how many water drops fit on a penny. I love science. It can be crazy at times, but it is so worth it seeing the kids get completely wrapped up in excitement. And it was even more worth it today when one of my kids exclaimed, "Miss Teacher! I noticed that this dropper is a little different than that one! That might make some pennies have more water drops than others!" And me saying, "You're right!! But shhh!!! Let's see if anyone else figures that out too!" I teach for "my kids are actually thinking, learning, and excited about school" moments like this.
On the other hand, I had to call the office today because one of my kids flipped out and pelted his stress ball at the wall in a fit, and then another kid dropped an f-bomb at a kid...sooo quite the day all in all!
For the first time, though, when I left school right away for autism therapy, I didn't come back after!! I actually left with all my things and went home after. I decided I needed an evening off. :) Definitely worth it...
Is it bad that I am DREADING the Halloween party Friday??
