So, what do I do for fun some nights???? Well, I watch my crime shows and type of lessons to compliment reading passages.
No, I don’t have a fever.
No, I don’t need to have a drink.
I seriously enjoy making lessons. The students I work with could attest to my joy as I present them with an activity sheet. They think I’m a cross between corny and crazy, but at least I am helping them conquer whatever new skill they are learning.
The same applies for when I am doing an activity with my son. It may be silly or corny. It may not be perfect, but I AM SO PROUD of it and it shows. My son knows he has my full attention and knows I love him and what we are doing.
The students think I’m corny, but they know that I created this lesson/activity just for them. They know I am thinking of them and want them to be successful.
Don’t get me wrong…I still like to sit down, watch my shows and drink a glass of sweet wine. Nothing better than that to unwind after a long day…but if I don’t make the lessons, who will?
What about all of you? Happier working or relaxing?
