I am currently taking classes as an adult. I like that I get to learn new things. I like that I get to work with other teachers for activities and assignments. I like that I can earn more money if I complete the courses and apply for a new certificate. I like that I can come back to my students and try new things that I have learned in class. I like so many things about being in school. However, there are some things that I don't like. For instance, I don't like that I get a lot of homework and it takes so much time to complete it. I don't like the stress that it brings. I don't like that right after work I have to go to a class and it makes my day really long before I can finally relax a little. But even though there are things I don't like about school I know that without school I wouldn't be able to have the life I want to have. School for me is the key to being successful.
WHAT THINGS DO YOU LIKE ABOUT SCHOOL? WHAT THINGS DON'T YOU LIKE ABOUT SCHOOL?
My Halloween day was fun! In my classroom we did this awesome math activity were we discussed estimating. We introduced the concepts of diameter and circumference. We used this information to apply it to pumpkins. Now, the best part after we really got to bond with our pumpkins, (we gave them names) was that later we were ready to explode them. I know kind of cruel but it's Halloween. We first calculated how many rubber bands it would take to crush them. Surprisingly, it took more than 300 rubber bands for some groups. The suspense was frighteningly fun. Then boom! A blast of pumpkin seeds everywhere. Poor pumpkins we had squeezed them to hard and we enjoyed every minute of it.
How was your Halloween?
