Next week is the last week of this semester. I have had a wonderful time working with the students from various schools in the New Orleans area, but the schedule has been grueling for this full time mommy and wife. I will be able to breath a little easier after finals.
Out of the three groups that I had to teach (P.E., Math, Language Arts) this was my favorite, because I love to engage children in good literature.
We did a whole unit on the fable about the six blind men who wanted to find out what an elephant was. One man grabbed the tail and said an elephant was like a rope. One man grabbed the leg and said that an elephant was like a tree etc...
During this clinical we read, discussed, did activities, wrote newspaper articles, and completed some worksheets. I have compiled all of this, some photos, and a copy of the story into books for the students to take home and share with their families.
I am glad that my work is almost finished, but I am going to miss the children.
It's ok though, because now I'll be able to spend more time with the child that I have been missing all semester.
