In Korea, English teachers often have to desk-warm on student holidays. The regular teachers don't usually have to be at school, but the GETs (Guest English Teacher) do.
The janitor and a couple of the office staff might be there. And you.
I have had desk-warming 3 days this week. On Monday, it wasn't fun because I didn't have any electricity. I had heat, which was great. I didn't mind the lights because I have a lot of windows in my office. But I sure did mind the electricity because I couldn't use the computer or anything.
It finally got fixed in the afternoon after I complained.
So what do I do during desk-warming?
On my school computer, I watch Netflix. I have already watched (again) every season of Toddlers and Tiaras. Am I the only person who liked that show? It's such a train wreck, and it made me want to smack some of the moms, but I still loved it.
I have also watched several movies, including all those great tear-jerker family ABC family Christmas movies during Christmas.
Now, I am on a Bones kick. I love that show and have seen every single episode. So starting at the beginning again has been a real treat, back when Bones and Seeley weren't together. Love it.
While I'm watching TV on my school computer, I am working on items for my Teachers Pay Teachers store. These are some of the goodies I have been working on lately.
|Match-Up Puzzles - mental math division|
|Match-Up Puzzles - fractions and decimals|
|Match-Up Puzzles - place value whole numbers expanded form|
|Mix & Match Math Choice Boards|
I sure wish I knew what grade level and subject I will be teaching next year, so I could get a jumpstart and start creating games and activities. So instead I am just creating things I would have used in the classroom in my previous years of teaching. It keeps me busy during all those desk-warming hours.
Just curious...what would you do if you had desk-warming hours?
