1. I pulled a price tag off a book and stuck it on my shirt to throw out later. Two periods went by and my fourth-graders came in. "Mrs. M-C, why do you have a price tag on? Are you really only worth $3.00?"
Another one chimed in, "I have $3.00! Can I buy you to do my homework?!"
2. My littlest newcomer is in 1st grade. She says "yes" when she means "no." She is the sweetest little thing. One day this week, she shouted out in the middle of class, "Oh My GOD!" When I rushed over to her, she just looked up at me, smiled, and said, "Ok, yes!" I still don't know what happened, or where she learned that!
3. I have my 3rd and 4th graders in with my 1st grade class to do Guided Reading. We're slowly mastering walking in line and standing in line at the bathroom. One of my first graders was behind my 3rd and 4th grader, but ended up out of his spot. The two newcomers knew something was not right, and the 4th grader just reached around to my little boy, pulled him up by his shirt collar, and placed him in his spot. It was like a mama cat dragging her kittens. I said, "No! We don't pull the kids!" My fourth grader said, "I sorry," and my first grader was fine, and here I am still laughing about it.
4. I needed something to help my students understand the relationship between the 5 senses and adjectives. Click any picture to grab it from Google Drive.
Have a great weekend!
