Got a late call today. Waterford called at 7:45 and told me one of their 5th grade teachers had been in but had gone home sick and could I please get there as quickly as possible. So I did.

The day was crazy, because 1) Mondays are D.A.R.E. days, 2) they were having a Storybook Parade in the afternoon, and 3) I didn't get to the school until right after the first bell rang, so I didn't have time to go over the lesson plans or anything.

The upper grades at this school switch classrooms for certain subjects, so I had 3 Social Studies classes. We went over their worksheets. One of the sheets was a wordsearch, and the kids were supposed to answer 6 questions to find out the words they needed to look for, then find them in the search. Clue number one was "Two spices used in the medieval ages to preserve food." The answer is pepper and cloves. In the search, the word "cloves" was backward.

Clue number six was "The science of determining a ship's direction and location." After I collected the papers, I saw that one kid hadn't finished figuring out the words, but he HAD circled all the words in the wordsearch, presumably by copying someone else. Next to number six, he had written, "Sevolc."

One kid...I wanted to kill him. The entire day, I was like "SHITHEAD*! Stop talking. SHITHEAD! Turn around! SHITHEAD! Stop kicking Quiet Girl* under the table!"

Also, I saw the twins today. I didn't talk to Twin 1, but Twin 2 asked me if I was going to help him with his math or reading today, and he gave me a big hug. He's the sweetest kid ever. He was dressed as some sort of military police, I think, and told me that next year he was going to be a "scary ghost."

Anyway. YAY it's almost dinnertime!
