i am an aide in a fourth grade classroom since i could not get a teaching job for this school year. i was thinking of starting up some kind of after school activity to boost my resume. i spoke with the principal and she said she was going to contact teachers etc. this week regarding starting such programs. i don't know any details or logistics about starting one within the school as yet, but right now i am trying to think of some ideas. the main reason for this is so that, if i don't hear anything by the end of the week, i'd like to go to the principal and come to her with some ideas i have. there are generic things like arts and crafts and what not, but i would like to think of something fun and educational, but not TOO crazy. any ideas? right now i'm thinking of suggesting doing something with comic books. any other ideas? thanks!
