Mommy helper

Today was my first Tuesay to volunteer in classrooms, rotating classrooms every other Tues from 9-11. Today's was Cason's and they have 2 daily works and 3 centers to complete for me to check each kid off. They are divided into 4 different groups based on ability. I work with 2 groups, Ms Lynne takes 1 for reading and Ms Susan ( good teacher from last yr) takes 1 out of room for math.

Cason is in the most advanced group and was first to finish everything and did so with ease. Centers don't have to be finished until Thursday and he was done with all in an hour on the first day. He is gonna need some challenges so he won't get bored!

Very impressed with teacher, you can tell she has been doing it a long time. She was working on vowels and constants and sounds, not just what is this word, and had neat ways to help the  kids remember.

Me on the other hand a little stressed with everyone wanting me to check them at once, all different abilities. At one point a girl tripped over my shoe while one boy dumped the whole glue bottle out all over him ( top fell off). Kids not allowed to interrupted Lynne at reading center no matter what so I had lots of little ones wanting help! Had fun though and neat to see how kids are doing, really enjoyed it.

Not much social time but little they had Cason mostly interacted with Ethan, his friend from last year. Another advanced girl name Clair seems to have a crush on him, was cute. Who wouldn't!":)
