Last year was hard. I have said many times that I spent the whole year trying to re-invent my lessons to engage a group of very quiet 4s and a group of VERY boisterous 2s… but this year is going to be the one to ruin the rest of my career.
They love everything. Level 4… loves everything. The 2s who went on to 3… love everything. The new 2s… love everything.
They think my jokes are funny.
They think 10 min FVR twice a week is relaxing and stress relieving.
They think stories are fun.
They love Internado and Gran Hotel…
Yesterday Spanish 2 was excited to do their written retell of Martina’s Oktapodi movie talk.
At first I thought it was just that they “seemed easy” because last year was difficult. Or that they were just waiting to show their true colors…
But they’re all.really.happy.
What am I going to do when I have a normal year again? A year with mostly happy kids and a few grouches? A year with students who don’t laugh at my dumb memes? A year when someone complains about everything?
I’ve decided I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. For now, I am going to THANK GOD and plan some great social justice stuff for these guys! 🙂
Hope your year treats you well and that if it is a hard one, next year is like this for you!!
