I am suppose to be working on some RTi papers for tomorrow morning....but what am I doing? Pinning, reading blogs and making files of activities for my "Grinch Day"...I know, I know..RTi should come first, but let me tell you about this case...
It all started in Kindergarten, I believe this poor baby was kicked out of a private Kindergarten situation in Indiana..then somehow they end up in 1st grade at my school, over 1,000 miles south!
In 1st grade this child made a name for themselves, you know "THAT kid" the one who did EVERYTHING wrong for their teacher...got mad, kicked kids, broke pencils, pushed desks over, cried about having no friends...yes "THAT kid" is in my 2nd grade class and needs some attention. Can this kid read? Yes, but hates to.
Can this kid 'do' math? Well. er..kinda!
How about writing? Oh YES you should see some of the things they write...(enter sarcasm)
How do I handle the "Situation" you ask...well I talk (a LOT), we walk , we eat, we hold hands...we try to trick them to read and like it...sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't...thank goodness for computers and centers and Pinterest for finding me MORE hands-on activities and craftivities!!! (Now you know the truth, I pin to keep sane)
So instead of compiling all my data, instead of making sure I have things lined up..I am playing around on the computer? guess who is going to be up L A T E tonight?
(Seriously, I DO have most of it done, I'm just procrastinating about putting all my data into a folder and all my RTi "forms" in a nice row)
Have I mentioned lately that Girls On The Run ends this Saturday with a 5K...I still need to e-mail about that, I have a few running Buddies that did not register for the race yet..um hello it is Saturday at 7:05 am, we have to leave here at 5:45 A.M...can't wait for that! (exit sarcasm)
