A.C.E.S. Week 5
So. Today was my last day volunteering at Green Central Elementary School. It was sad leaving, I didn't tell any of the kids it was my last day because I wasn't sure how they would react. The kids switched groups again last Monday, so I went with the fourth graders back to the classroom. It depends on the day, but sometimes the kids are good, and sometimes they are out of control. Today was an â€śout of controlâ€? day. It seems like when they're in the classroom, they get antsy, and a little crazy. No matter what, there is no way your going to get them to listen to you. Probably only 2 or 3 kids are listening at a time. It's not like the other volunteers and I don't tryâ€¦we really do. But they are really rude and talk back and definitely don't listen. I know they are good kids...they just get a little excited sometimes. Anyway, they are starting an experiment that will show them how the earth is a "big greenhouse". It actually is pretty cool. I remember learning a lot of that stuff back when I was in elementary school. I have learned a lot from these kids, they're crazy, but overall pretty fun. I've had a good time getting to know them this semester, I'm sad to leave, but I'm glad I got the experience.
