Ben - Nearly there

One more day, and then semester ends. Granted, I have a four week prac after that, but frankly that'll be more fun.

No more being judged on how good an essay I can write on "How to teach reading"; I get to be judged on how well I actually teach reading.

I'm going to be teaching a kindergarten class. The headaches are going to hurt; I got one after visiting the class for less than an hour. On the other hand, I can dust off jokes that no-one over the age of five hasn't heard. And you don't have to be so careful about what you say as you do with the older kids, because so much of it just goes over their heads anyway. And when you're reading to the littlies you can overact to your heart's content, and I do so like to overact.

Great stuff! Dante picked up a page of jokes from a magazine at the Dentist's surgery yesterday. His latest joke:
Q: What medicine do you give an ill ant?
A: Antibiotics!

Even though I've heard the rest of them at least three times each I'm not quite able to recall them exactly.

Have fun!

Do Kindergarteners know about dinosaurs?

Why do dinosaurs paint their toenails red?
So they can hide in cherry trees.

How do you make Stegosaurus chili?
Take it to the South Pole.
