Today was the first day of summer school. I was so flippin' nervous as I didn't feel as prepared as I would have like to have been. You see, when it comes to teaching, I have to be organized and ready with plan A, B, and possibly C. Today, I barely had plan A figured out.
I am used to working with 4th and 5th graders and this summer.. I will be working with 7 year olds ... going into 2nd grade. I didn't know a single student, as none of them were from my school. But, as each an everyone one of them walked into my room, I felt ready and at ease. Plan A went completely out the window. It wasn't worth losing sleep over! The kids were ready to learn. All of them are so different, all 8 of them. They all have their different strengths and weaknesses, so it will be a challenge to group them for reading groups, but I look forward to growing with them over the 6 weeks of summer school.
After the kids got on the bus and I left the school around 11:40, I headed to the gym. It was my intent to run 30 minutes, strength train the legs/core, and then swim a short distance. The gym was packed. All those lunch time workouts. So, I was only able to grab a treadmill for 15 minutes, and made the most of it with some speed. I had to call it quits after a mile because the guy next to me reaked. Honestly. Then I lifted and did some core workout and hit up the pool. I was very slow/tired/sore in the pool. Overall, the workout went good, but I was completely exhausted this afternoon and ended up taking a 2 hour nap! Geez!! What's up with that?!
