Division was the challenge yesterday. Today, the challenge is fractions. To be perfectly honest, I do not understand moving on from one new thing to another at that kind of speed. I remember spending days on division. I remember spending days on fractions. Whatever you were learning, you had ample time to digest it before moving on to the next thing.
Because William was anxious to go home, he simply sat there passively, biding his time. It was frustrating. It was supposed to be a short day, but it ended up being the regular length of time because he was being stubborn about his assignments. (He does have an appointment to begin the process of being tested for ADHD next week.)
Meanwhile, our first grader cheerfully did his work. When it was time to tune into his zoom meeting, he did so. Grandpa was supervising him. I walked out of the office to make sure that he was 'zoomed in' properly. Tim was standing next to me. I listened to the teacher speaking, to see if they were doing anything which required supervision.
Very suddenly, the man standing next to me made a very rude toot.
I looked at him shocked, He smiled sweetly, just like he always does.
"Um, Tim? You do realize that when he's in a zoom meeting, the teachers can hear that, right?"
Long pause as the smile slowly faded.
I went back out to the office to keep William focused.
