    Tomorrow will be the first day that I'm alone all day with the class that I'll be taking over as a long-term sub. The teacher has not gone on her maternity leave yet, but since she has a doctor's appt tomorrrow she's going to be gone all day. I'm extremely excited to have the classroom to myself, but I'm also a little bit nervous. I'll definitely post as soon as I get home tomorrow to let you know how things went, but cross your fingers for me until then! :) I just hope that the fact that their regular teacher isn't in the building doesn't change their behavior dramatically! haha

    Good luck! I'm sure you will do great. And I bet you the day will fly by. When I first started subbing I was so surprised when I heard the last bell ring. 6 1/2 hours seem to go by sooo quickly!:)

    Oh, I'm sure I'll be exhausted! As it is, I was exhausted all last week from teaching all day and the teacher was still there, never mind tomorrow when I'll be completely on my own! It's ok, though. I absolutely love being in the classroom, so I don't mind. :)

    Well, it's 1:00, so there's only an hour left and the kids are at recess for the next 10 minutes. Things have gone WONDERFULLY! They've been behaving very well and we've gotten through everything we were supposed to with no extra time for them to get into trouble. ;) When they come back in at 1:10 I'll give them their homework assignments and then they go next door for Social Studies while I have the other 4th grade for Science. That class I'm a little worried about because I don't really know them, but it'll probably be fine. Then, they come back at 2:10 and slowly straggle out as their busses are called until 2:25. I'll be back then when the day is officially over to let everyone know how it went! :)

    Well, all in all it was a really good day. The other fourth graders were really chatty and it got to the point where I had to be a bit of a meanie (which I actually haven't had to do with my regular class). Nothing major, though. I'm actually a little disappointed that she'll be back tomorrow. haha I am exhausted, though. Time to relax. :)

    Beth, I'm glad your day went well! Don't be afraid to be a "meanie"...once they see you mean business, they won't test the waters like they were today. I hope the rest of your week goes just as well, even if the "real" teacher is back!

    Beth, you have to be a "meanie" before you are a "nicie". Your class must know that you mean business and they can not get over on you.

    I'm not worried about being a meanie. :) I just haven't had to be one yet with the regular class because they're always so well behaved.

    I'm glad to hear that everything is going well for you! Today there is a sub in for my CT at field, so I don't have much else to do but play on the computer, and maybe I'll do some work that I brought along with me. We have finals coming up next week. *sigh* :(
