Life and Therapy goes on

I went to the doctor Saturday and found out I had an ear infection. Guess that's one reason I have been feeling so bad. After taking antibiotics and ibuprofen for a few days, I am feeling somewhat better. I am feeling better about the job, too. Even though it is always changing. One child that had not shown up since the beginning of school suddenly showed up Friday, so he is added to my list.

I am struggling the most with my kindergarten kids. They are not as easy to control as the preschoolers but don't have the attention span of the first graders; There are so many of them that it is hard to give each child what he/she needs; and I am getting them during naptime and some of these kids miss their naps. Some things I am going to try: more hands-on projects, having part of the class 'play' while I work with them individually; and pulling out some of the kids that need more help for another day. On the plus side, I found this kool Mr. Potato head set--it's a big Mr. Potato head jar filled with four individual potato head people. The little ones are gonna love it. Plus, I found a tub o'Playdough that includes stuff to play with in the playdough. And I ordered the stuff I was wanting to order from the co-op. It's the little things that make me happy.
