Polar Express at school
I subbed in Kindergarten few days ago, and it was a Polar Express Day. The school’s PTO organized this event for the students every Christmas season. The children loves it. They get to wear their favorite pajamas to school and bring their favorite pillows or stuffed toy (lovey for the younger ones). Then they get to watch the Disney animated movie Polar Express while eating popcorn and having some chocolate milk delivered room-to-room by the PTO members.
It was indeed a special event for the students. Their excitement was to the roof. In fact, almost all of the children in the class I subbed kept asking me when will the Polar Express gonna start. 🙂 They’re so adorable. They can’t wait for Christmas.
What a week. Since I started going back to work, as a substitute teacher at my daughter’s school, my house has become unorganized. I had two pending Balikbayan boxes which I just shipped out this Saturday. Then I have more stuff left for another box to be shipped out to my family in the Philippines before my nieces and nephews go back to school in June. School is out end of this month so they will be in summer vacation starting April 1st.
I started as a substitute teacher at K’s school February this year. I subbed in a few classes in Kindergarten, in First Grade, and in Fourth Grade. The recent sub position I took was for the Librarian Aide. So I worked at the library for three days. It was fun and a little busy because it was testing week at the school. The testing was conducted in the computer laboratory so the computer classes were joined other classes at library times.
Next week is Spring Break and I can’t wait for our trip to Beaver’s Bend State Park in Oklahoma. My darling daughter is excited as well. We’re going to explore the park again. Right now, I am finishing a few house chores and will go to the playground later.
