I agree with what other people have said.
You can study Korean or prepare for your next lesson.

If you are teaching in elementary school, you can also go outside and play with other students.
I think most kids would love it when you come into their classroom during their break, or play with them outside.

Learn how to design a website?  Read a great book.  Do what you always wanted to do.  Get better educated on a subject matter you've always been interested in.  There's always facebook, bored.com or other time wasting websites but I would be productive doing things that I've always wanted to do or learn about.  Perhaps write? 

Hope this helps,

Bored.com is always a good way to burn some time. 

I would suggest doing what you've always wanted to do or learn.  Personally, I want to learn how to design websites and learn how to use the full functions of a camera.  It's up to you.  Learn a new skill, you never know when it's going to come in handy. 

Good luck.

-Learn Korean, learn new phrases
-Make future lessons, and if your lessons are already done make them better. Add to your powerpoint and make it more fun.
-Learn your student's names.
-Learn your co-worker's names.
-Make a list of things you want to do in Korea
-Write emails/blog entries about your experience in Korea so far

forgot to add that you could also spend your time daydreaming about switching to an AfterSchool program where you're not used as a human tape recorder, don't have to deskwarm, and your paycheck is performance-based (i.e. you only get paid if they actually learn English).

I bring my guitar to school because my students love to hear me play and sing songs (no matter how bad I sing them heh). When I'm just sitting around, I typically play my guitar. I also have the luxury of having my own classroom so... if you don't play guitar, read books!

I bet your boss loves to see you messing around on your guitar while on the clock.

Who's desk warming this time of year?  I want to be them.  My schools let me go home when there's desk warming to be done.

Sometimes I have cancelled classes for various reasons.

Ahh, not full-blown desk warming then, just a free period here and there.

Hows the desk warming going?
« Reply #498 on: July 24, 2012, 04:21:52 PM »
With School holidays upon us Public school Teachers I wonder how the desk warming is going?

My Co teachers have been playing Scrabble and aside from some light lesson planning nothing much is going on. There are no lessons for the last 3 days of school. So there is only light lesson planning going on. The hard core desk warming starts on Thursday.

P is pressure
V is volume
n is number of moles
R is the gas constant

For people who answered "Don't tell anyone, but I'm not actually at work," I want to know: how do you get away with it?
