Well, it is truly the end for the year. All districts have officially finished (well, one has a 50-minute day tomorrow, but that’s beside the point). My last day of work, and only day this week, was Tuesday. I was a little stressed from my organic chemistry class the first time I subbed in that classroom and because of that had one of the TAs complain about me, but Tuesday actually went fine. I just let the TAs do the teaching- nothing I agreed on, but the one just automatically did the lessons. The lessons were only in the morning mind you. The afternoon was a rescheduled picnic. When I arrived, I saw that last Wednesday was the scheduled field day with the picnic scheduled the following day. When I read over the plans I found out the picnic was that day since it rained Thursday (and Friday, and Saturday, and… well you get the point). Besides the picnic, with a regular fourth grade class- the class I was in was a self-contained special ed class with six students- with games all afternoon, the class watched a movie off of hulu.com, Fudge-a-Mania, based off of Judy Blume’s book, which was a sequel (published nearly 20 years later, and it’s not even the most recent one!) to her popular Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing book. Interestingly enough, Florence Henderson and Eve Plumb played mom and daughter in this movie. Of course, the movie was from 1995 so Eve’s character had her own children who were the focus of the movie. Nope, none of the rest of the bunch were in it.
So, what do I write about now? Well, at the moment it’s kind of up in the air. I do want to write a longer piece on my new computer, which will probably appear on its own page so another site can link directly to it. Aside from that, I don’t know. I will probably do at least a couple of camp writeups as well at the end of the month, and maybe some preview from my last few years before I leave. Well, enough for now. Good night.

I liked Tales From a 4th Grade Nothing and Superfudge. Never saw any of the movies, but that would have been fun too.
