i just taught three elementary school classes in a row. it's going to be a challenge to keep the first and second graders engaged, but the older kids are great. i dont know if i will have to do any more today, probably just one more? my powerpoint presentation about myself, the showing of maps, american money, post cards, a stab at the game of telephone and an additional introduction of rock, paper, scissors in english took up barely the entire class period. so i need fun things to do with these kids. i can see how this is going to be exhausting, especially with some of the more extroverted, outspoken older kids.
i heard obama is supposed to give a speech on health care in like a week. good for him. if the smartest person in the entire world can't effectively get a plan to cover all americans through two congressional super majorities, then there is really no hope for any of us at all.
my feet hurt from karate, which is ok.
