So I recently started my new job as a substitute teacher and today got to teach Junior High classes. I put a dice on the end of my Grind Machine and a new pink string on my green whip, and then tossed them in my bag to take with me this morning.
I got to school early and was yo-yoing a bit while waiting for the kids to show up. As they trickled in it was great to see and hear the amazement! They especially liked the 5a, even though I’m terrible at it, and were really impressed by even the simplest stuff. They had all sorts of questions and I got to interact with my class before we started.
Normally as a sub kids hate you and try to get away with everything, but yo-yoing with them first seemed to break down the hate and helped me connect with the students. I yo-yoed for the kids at the beginning of every class and had good classes throughout the day.
Apparently word got around the school and kids were coming in and asking to see me yo-yo.
Yo-yo just makes life better!
