Friday Catch Up
I'm still trying to come to terms with electronic rolls. When the computer runs out of battery life or the program times out on you it's a bit frustrating! Give me a piece of paper any day. As if I needed to prove I'm no spring chicken, paper is my preference. Next week I'll be teaching at least once every day, and the week after that the same, within which I will be planning a sequence of lessons for one learning area. Probably maths or literacy. I'm looking forward to it.
In the meantime I've an exam on Tuesday morning so I need to get studying. I'm getting cranky and frustrated with the whole thing. We've been told to revise everything from week 2-12. Some of the readings are hundreds of pages long....and today we were told if that's too much just reread the lecture notes. ARGH!!! As if an exam proves my ability to implement what I've learnt anyway. All this exam seeks to achieve is to find out how much I can fit in my head and regurgitate on demand. I don't know about you, but there's not much room for extra stuff in my head. The important stuff is always falling out unexpectedly.
OK...getting off my soapbox now. Looking forward to breaky with my dear friend, Rel, tomorrow and the rest of the day putting together another friend's kitchen.
