The past few weeks since we have returned to school from Winter Break have been full of hilarious/ridiculous moments in my classroom! Here are a few of my favorite examples (some of these are from today alone!):
- Overheard last Friday
Girl 1: "What are you doing this weekend?"
Girl 2: "I'm not really sure, but I think I might write a vampire novel.."
Haha! Well, I do love her ambition! :)
- Having to ask the class, "Who wrote 'Peanut Butter Jelly Time' on our Learning Objective poster?"
- Having to answer the question from a student: "Am I allowed to meditate in the classroom?" without laughing!
- Having this class discussion:
My instructional assistant: "What would be a good type of fabric to wear in cold weather? I'll give you a hint, it starts with the letter F." Student: "Feathers?"
HAHAHA! Um, that is not even a type of fabric and who wears feathers?
(My assistant and I were trying to get them to think about FLEECE, since many of them still insist on wearing t-shirts even though it is FREEZING outside! The wind chill has been below 30 degrees all week! Ugh!)
--- Helping a student clean out his desk and finding an assignment from the THIRD week of school that all along he insisted he had already turned in and that I had "lost" it.
--- Trying to explain to the kids why we weren't taking the Bolt Bus (a charter bus company) for our field trip into DC tomorrow (only about a 20-30 minute ride), and one kid said "Aw man, no free Wi-Fi!" Seriously, who are these kids?? Hahaha!
That's when I had to break the news that there would be NO electronics on the bus anyway so it didn't matter that there wouldn't be free Wi-Fi...
-- At the end of the day today, one student said "I'm SO glad today is Friday!" And two others said, "Yeah, me too!!" That's when I had to remind them that today was, in fact, Thursday....I do hate having to be the bearer of bad news! :(
My kiddos certainly make life interesting!
