This was the first week back in the swing of things since spring break, and it seems like it has been forever since I saw the kids. I got to work with the same kids that I usually work with again this week, although the team leader switched. I really enjoyed working with the new team leader, Katie. She was really good at working with the kids, especially those who clearly didn't want to be there. She kept them very well under control which gave me more of a chance to have some one-on-one homework time with the kids as opposed to having to work on keeping them under control the whole time. I worked with one student, Cardell, this week who has always been difficult to work with. He is generally well behaved and doesn't really talk back, but at times he doesn't really talk at all. I got him to work on his homework for a short while, but towards the end, he completely shut down and wouldn't respond to me in any way. Thankfully, however, Katie had an activity for the kids. We watched a movie about the Raptor Center here on campus and the students had to fill out a worksheet. It kept them all in check until it was gym time, and it was pretty interesting (I thought). In the gym I helped twirl the jump rope, as I usually do, but then Julia and I (another volunteer) started to play along with the kids, and I think they got a kick out of it. They are all really great kids and I love working with them... most of the time.
