Mac is learning how to read. They're using a program called Fundations. Mac said he doesn't really like Fundations. I don't really care about that. He seems to be knowing letter sounds, spelling words out with the right sounds, and recognizing some words in print; so that seems good. There's a cute owl called Echo and the teacher says the kids like his spinny head. Mac says he likes him and makes me repeat some letter sounds like "f, fun, fffff." Fundations is new this year. Let's be honest, I'm sure it's just ffffine.

But, I have to say, I don't like the name of the program Fundations. When Mac's teacher told me about it, she said, "I feel so silly saying 'FUNdations."

"Yeah," I agreed. "Just because you teach Kindergarten doesn't mean you're IN Kindergarten."

"Exactly," she said.

And, similarly, just because I teach middle school doesn't mean I'm IN middle school; although I still do like fart jokes.

I think I teach middle school because I truly am IN middle school :(
