I swear, February is the most exciting month to teach school. We have Groundhog Day, followed closely by the 100th Day of School (a big celebration nowadays). Then there is Valentine's Day (and all the fun), and Presidents' Day (the kids love learning all about the Presidents!). Plus February is Black History Month (we learn a lot of history!) and Dental Health Month too...what could be more fun than a free toothbrush that is shaped like a whale? LOL. And we have our Super Citizens Beach Party tomorrow to boot. What a fun, exciting, and busy month.
I am enjoying my student teacher too. It gives me a bit of a break, but I also get to see things from the sidelines...and, oh, do you see things when you are sitting there! LOL. It'll help me be a better teacher too.
