I began to adjust to this new system a round the time of Thanksgiving break. I still struggled with all the commenting that our class had to do, but I was getting used to it more and more every day. I started to embrace the new way of teaching when we returned from winter break. The writing was surprisingly easier than when I left on winter break. I began write smoother, and cleaner sentence and paragraphs. I have also noticed that I am having an easier time getting my thoughts down on to the paper. It used to take me about an hour or more to write a two paragraph piece, now, it only takes about 45 minutes to write and proofread two or three paragraphs.
There was more than one type of growth this year.
As some as you may know, I am staying for next year and I am super excited. It is going to be an awesome year. We all thought, all the kids that are staying, that there was going to at least 40 kids, but the total is about 30 or 32 kids. Another decision that has been recently made was the fact that we all need to get IPads. This is bad for me because I have a brand new windows PC; which wont sync well with an IPad. The Ipads that we need to get are about $725. That is including "apple care" and other protections. Comment 'staying' if you are stay for Ninth.
On the way home from school today, I learned that we have ONE MONTH left in school. I feel that this is crazy. I can't wait for 9th grade. It is going to be the best year yet.
