Random Tid Bits

  1. Today is my last day of classes. I can't complain much, as they were all pretty great students.

    I got thank you cards from two. That's never happened. They are usually in such a hurry to get out of there, and know they'll see me at graduation.

    I had a discussion with a few of my older students how when you talk, it depends on your voice how people take it. If I say in a cheery voice, "F ya" that's going to be taken very differently than saying in a deep mean voice, "F#*#* you". I didn't say the words to them. Well except for, "F ya". On one thank you note it had the F word because of our conversation. I covered it up. It can be left for an inside person like me to understand it.

  2. My kids get done next week. Isaak's beyond ready to be done. He's loosing focus.

  3. I don't think I ever posted about this, but said it on facebook. Isaak's big science fair project was due one day a few weeks ago. We worked on it, since Christmas to try and get it knocked out. I wanted him to review everything because judges go around, and ask kids questions. I know other kids do it literally the night before it's due.

    His teacher gave him 5 different worksheets. Math he didn't understand because he had Strings during the lesson, with Social Studies we had to dig out his book that I bought because he can't bring home the school's book. There were a few other things.

    Then there was this crazy worksheet! This tops all the crazy worksheets he's gotten. The kids had to fill about 14 lines with words that equal $100. A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5 and so on. Who has time for this madness on a night a HUGE project is due? I'm horrible, and google all his busy work assignments. Someone had a page of these $100 words. The guy that made the site went on about how the assignment is a time waister. He is is a computer programer, and programmed them in to create the words for him. I laughed so hard when I read the letter.

  4. I think I finally figured Isaak's teacher out. She was a sub for 7 years before teaching. This is her first year teaching full time in her own classroom. It seems like a lot of his homework is busy work. It's work that possibly a sub would give to students because a teacher is gone. She's stuck in sub land. Most nights he has a synonym sheet. Travis and I both have to look on google to figure out the words. Lots of busy work. Two hours of Isaak working on that in combination of good real homework is too much!

    There are assignments that she assigns that we love. Like look up a word in the dictionary, write it's definition, and 2 sentences on how that word would be used. Math is need, Social Studies I'd love if they could in fact bring home a book. $7 on Amazon to buy a used book was the best money I spent all year!

  5. I applied for a company, and was had. They wanted to chat with me before calling me in to an interview. Well I knew I was had when they put their logo up, and it was stretched. Did they think I wouldn't notice? A big company wouldn't make that mistake. I know someone that works for them, so I FB messaged them about their hiring process. Sure enough they didn't go through the hiring process they way I was. I continued to reply to them knowing I was had. I wouldn't give them any of my information. I just would reply back with crazy answers. Plop up their logo, then the companies real logo, and ask if they saw any difference? Things like that. Have you ever been scammed before?

We have so many snow days to make up, the girls aren’t out until 6/10. Mariah was done May 3, but had to leave on the 5th for a student scientist program in Columbia. She’ll be back next week. I think we’re all ready to just kick back and enjoy summer at this point. I think the Thank You cards were really lovely to get. Kids today are so out of touch with writing hand written thank you notes, so that makes it even nicer that you got 2, I think!

Sadly, I have been scammed. Big time and in a way I'm still paying for, literally, years later. Cool that you got thank you notes!

That makes sense about the sub thing!!
