I have only a few days left here in Rexburg, then I will be moving home for a while to earn some moo-la!!! Being the end of the semester there is always a ton of things to do and you always feel a bit overwhelmed. I will tell you about each of my classes and how they are going..
Home and Family Time Management: Well this class is pretty easy I must say. I just have to give two presentations before Friday. Not a big deal though one is only 2 minutes and the other like 30 sec. or something. For the 2 minute presentation I just have to talk about a research paper I already wrote, and the topic is on stress. How fitting for this point in the semester. I learned a lot from this class, but I will not be sad to see it in the rear view mirror, hip hip hooray!!
Science, Origins of the Universe, The Earth, and Human Life: I have honestly no idea what I was thinking when I signed up for this class. I have to take 3 science classes for generals and this is one of the options, so I chose it. Needless to say I will be more alert the next time I sign up for classes, and do a little research before registration. For this class I also have to give a presentation, it is on the vikings, it is a 10 min. group presentation and I cannot wait to get it over with, I think that my group goes tomorrow, thank goodness. This class has been a living nightmare, it is so unorganized and I can honestly say that I didn't learn a thing. Oh I almost forgot, I have to take a test by Tuesday, hopefully I do good on that.
Doctrine and Covenants Religion Class: Religion classes are my favorite, they are the least amount of work and I get the most out of them, who wouldn't want that right? I love my teacher he is pretty funny, sometimes I literally lol but no one else in my class does, I just want to slap them and say "hello that was a real joke it is okay to laugh!!!!" Sometimes people are so dense. For this class the final is a practicum. Basically you choose a part of your life that you need to improve on and you write about it. I chose praying. I need to be better at saying my prayers in the morning and not being to repetitive. So that is what I am working on.
Motivation and Management: I LOVE THIS CLASS!!!! It is basically the best class that I have ever taken, I have learned so much and it will help me out so much when I am a teacher. This is a class about how to manage your classroom as a future teacher. We learned about different theories and then we applied them to what we know and we made a discipline plan for out final. And I took pictures of it for you!! yay!!
 This is the cover sheet, I just chose a class that I might be teaching in the future since my major is Family and Consumer Science Education.
 Table of Contents
 Philosophy of Discipline page, this is where I talked about preventing bad behavior and the seating arrangement that I would like in my future classroom.
 Professionalism: I wrote about the rules that I have for myself as a teacher.
 Class Behavior: We want a class that there is a sense of community.
 Rule, procedures and possible consequences. I decided that I want my students to help create some of the rules so the will be more likely to follow them.
 Extreme Misbehavior procedure
 Communicating my Plan. First day of school
 Front and back page of the parents newsletter!
It looks so nice, I'm so proud of it and I can honestly say that hard work pays off. I looks so professional. I took to our schools copy spot to have it printed on nice paper and they also put it together with a spiral binding. There is a clear protector cover on top and also a hard vinyl piece on the back to protect it. I hope I get an A that would make my semester!!! :)
English 201: The last class to write about is my english class. I took it online and I'm glad I did. You don't wast three hours of your week going to class and you can go at your own pace, for the most part. I am already done with this class. I finished on Friday when I submitted my final paper. It was a 13 page argument paper. I wrote about the negative effects of divorce on a family. I think I will score really good on it. I am anxious to see how I do.

Overall this semester has been a good one and have enjoyed my classes. I worked super hard and I know that the hard work will definitely pay off. I cannot wait to see my awesome grades!!!!!
