Well, today was the dreaded first day of school. After 12 weeks of summer vacation I definitely wasn’t ready to get back into the “school mode.” Overall though, the first day of 8th grade wasn’t terrible.
I’m a mentor at my school for the 5th graders (since they are the youngest.) We started off the day but helping them with there lockers and such.
From there I headed to the 8th grade meeting, where we have to go over behaviour expectations and rules about our computers.
After all the meetings we went to our first hour class. I have science first hour, and we went over the syllabus most of the class. Then we worked on a worksheet that told our science teacher about our strengths and weaknesses.
In my 2nd hour French we went over the syllabus and then we talked for the rest of class. (We’re pretty good at getting off task.)
During 3rd hour I have social studies and of course I’m in the back row like always. Once again we went over the syllabus and then we worked on a project telling our teacher about our favourite things.
In 4th hour I had study hall. I decided to go organize my locker and my binder since they was nothing better to do.
5th hour I have reading class with one of my old 5th grade teachers. We worked on an assignment called Textual Lineage. We talked about how we learned to read over the years.
6th hour we had recess. It was 90 degrees out! We also have lunch during the second half of 6th hour. We had assigned lunch tables and we had to sit with our homeroom.
7th hour I have english class. In English we went around introducing ourselves and making name tags.
8th hour was math class. My math teacher is leaving for Bulgaria in a few days so we won’t have her the first few weeks of school.
Finally 9th hour came. I have gym class 9th hour and today we opened our gym lockers and went over rules and expectations.
Overall, today was pretty good except for the fact that teachers seem to love syllabuses and that it was super hot in our non- air conditioned school.
