Spoiled Students

My summer class is small enough to get my baking leftovers! We're about half way through the summer course right now. The class meets every day (Mon-Fri) and I'm starting to run out of ideas to stay perked up during the class since I see them so often. I try to bring in a little math puzzle for us to talk about half-way through the class to break up the lesson and homework monotony. Having a lesson and then having them work on worksheets or homework in groups isn't giving us enough variety anymore. On a positive note, I'm starting to leave the office much earlier now. I'm only getting paid for teaching one course, but I was staying and working in my office for half a day...way more than I was getting paid. Not that I care much about the hours vs. pay, but I have so much things I'd like to do at home.

The cupcakes are from this recipe.

I didn't know you were teaching a summer course. When is your last day?

Yeah, it's June 1 - July 22. It's everyday (Mon-Fri) from 9:30-10:45. Only 8 students! It's great. They are all mature and attentive.
