one of my kiddies (who has some emotional issues) was very upset mom had to drop him off and leave for the day- I'm talking screaming and crying (so loud that we couldn't really hear anything). :-( Not one of my students gave him a funny look. Not one of them complained or got annoyed. Not one of them thought anything different or bad about about him. They just walked by and give him a pat on the back and said things like, "It's okay" or "I wish my mom could stay too." Seriously, completely unprovoked, this is what they said. And not just one of them. This was like four or five of them. How could you not have a good day after witnessing that...?!?!
Of course, then these conversations occur, and I am wondering (as sweet as they are) WHAT?!?!?
Student A (frowning and very clearly distraught): I have the hiccups.
Me: Oh no, honey. Go get a drink of water. They'll go away soon.
Student B (to Student A, after they've walked away): Do you know can die from hiccups!?!?!
Student A: What!?!?!
Student B: Yeah...
Student A (running up to me): Am I going to die from the hiccups!?!??!!?! (very worried, as though these might be her last moments. Her life was probably flashing before her eyes...)
Me: No sweetie, the hiccups will not kill you. I promise.
In other news, I'm working on getting my very first unit posted on TpT. (I guess I need to finish it first, right)- I'm on it today! It's a Love Monster Antonym Activity pack with some great activities for your kiddies to practice antonyms.
There are also some great giveaways going on! Check out:
Have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND!!! :-)
