Over thirty kids showed up for extra help. At least five were not mine and no matter how adamant I was about only helping my own, I did not turn them away.
We accomplished quite a bit. We went over an entire regents with lots of extra stuff thrown in. The kids know that any time I hand out a worksheet I yell, "Red hots, get your red hots here" so they come in asking for the red hots. Today, they got red hots with extra onions and relish.
As for clocking in, I didn't even know where to get a time card. I took Schoolgal's suggestion and used the back of my regular card, but I don't think that is valid as there are no days on it. Oh well, the money would have been a nice bonus. My husband wouldn't have looked so surprised when I told him I was going to be working four hours, but what's done is done. This wasn't the first money I threw away and I am sure it won't be the last.
I'm exhausted but I feel good. Hopefully the cram session will pay off and they will all pass. And I know that they learned some math and not just the bare minimum needed to get through the exam.
