    Well, I got my first assignment for Thursday. I'll be in a 7th grade science class at one of the local middle schools. I've only subbed at this particular school once before. So we'll see how Thursday goes!

    Thanks! I'm going to do a little power teaching on them to see how I fare using that technique. I'm actually excited b/c I love science and have about getting my science certification.

    Good luck stg! I haven't subbed since Dec 2007, so it'll feel a tad odd to suddenly be back in the classroom again! :)

    It was good!! The kiddos were a little chatty but nothing major. The ones that were the most chatty were the honors kids! :eek: Of course there was 23 of them in one room and the rest of the classes only had about 12-15. Oh, and I had boys PE...talk about fun!!! 38 boys in a gym with no whistle. It went okay though. They did their stretches and then split into their teams and played volleyball.

    stg, glad it went well!

    Tomorrow, I'll be subbing for the 1st time in a LONG time! It will be for elementary RSP. I've subbed for the teacher many times before & I know the aide. Tomorrow should be pretty good.

    I'm glad to hear that your day went well, STG! And I definitely agree with seventh graders being chatty.

    I think their chatty up until about 12th grade:)

    Glad to read that your day went well. I would have definitely been out of my league subbing for a PE class...that would not be a pretty sight:(

    I subbed on monday for the 1st time and it went pretty good.

    STG glad it went well. When is your next day? Here you can book with the office sec. So I used to book before I left for the day. That way I never had a day off.

    I tried to do that yesterday before I left, but she was swamped so she said to call her tomorrow (which is today) and see if she can line some jobs up for me.
