A is for Absent... Almost

The high school helpers that were going to help at the pre-school I wrote about yesterday were supposed to be at the school at 7:30, and then the kids at 8:00. When 8:30 rolled around and nobody was with me in the library, I was thinking yeah, so much for that apple!

Kids eventually came though, and between the time of 8:30 and 11:00 there were 25 people who attended. There were about 7 high school kids who came and read to the children and I was really excited because the community adult volunteer came. He's a volunteer teacher at the other high school in town, and he seemed like he had a good time. It's so much better to have a willing partner in these projects!

The schedule was obviously way out of order, but that's not that big of a deal. We did our calendar time, practiced the days of the week, and covered the letter A, and of course had snack!

All hesitance of this project is basically gone. I'm really excited about all the different things we can cover in our classes. Next week we're moving on to B, so definitely going to make monster bubbles.
