For this group I called the teacher and asked, "Are you sending the kids or are you in the middle of something?". She tells me to give her 5 minutes. The kids never came.
I am getting tired of being on the same thing for so long, when the kids don't come we don't get a lot finished. It's also frustrating when the teacher decides that they are going to send work for the kids to finish, regardless of my plans.
Oh well, I guess this is just part of being a specialist brought in 1/2 way through the school year. Hopefully this week will be better.
