Writing bit by bit today to keep sane
Thursday, November 29, 2012
I have the Thursday blues. Too tired to think straight and ready for the weekend. I'm trying not to panic about the Geometry class, I already have noticed that the teacher that was going to help me has already fallen down on the task and isn't in a position to help me. The materials she was supposed to give me for tomorrow and Monday I don't have yet and she tells me this morning today is not a good day to get it from her. I literally need about 3 sheets of paper that are probably sitting on her desk. We are all supposed to start a new unit on Monday and I need the lesson plans from the teacher last year. Doesn't look like I'm going to get it. I found a web site that has a power point for each topic and so I'll stick to the Chapter 1 work I've been doing with the students this week and use that until someone decides they have time to catch me up. If I can teach them some skills, practice with them, give them independent problems and then homework every day; I'll be golden. I also borrowed a Geometry workbook from an Algebra teacher that I will use for homework sheets. There seems to be one that matches each power point I found so that might make things okay. The power points also have practice questions embedded in it. I might be saved for a bit longer.
