I initially started this blog so I would have a record of our day to day adventures in second grade. I don't keep a diary or journal, so blogging seemed like a good option.
Also, I'm pretty sure this is the best class I will ever have (I'm talking super sweet, good-hearted kiddos) and I don't want to forget it (because we've all had that class that maybe we just want to forget...I'm just saying...) I want to make sure to recognize all of the little stuff that make our job so amazing. It's also nice to know there are so many amazing teachers out there in blog-world sharing similar, silly experiences. I've tried to share these things with the hubby, but if you're not a teacher, I don't think you really understand (or care). So thanks for
So...here are few silly things from today:
1. One of my kids tried to sell me stuff on the playground today. Kind of like the black market I guess.... By the time he had gotten to me, he had already made $1.25 (all in quarters) selling buttons and Halloween bugs. Apparently they're a hot item on the primary playground.
2. Another one of my kids got his hand stuck, yes, really stuck as in couldn't-get-it-out-to-do-his-math, in his button down shirt. His hand was lodged between two buttons (not sure how this happened, but whatever) and I had to help him get it out. I almost took a picture of it, but I didn't want to make him feel dumb or anything...
3. And finally, another one of my kids was caught rolling through the hallway on his way to speech. Rolling kind of like you would roll down a hill. Fun, huh? I found this is a very interesting way to get around to get around school, since we are an outdoor school, and pretty much you don't see anyone rolling through the halls. Ever. He said he was pretending to be a spy. How can you keep a straight face at this...?
This all pretty much has nothing to do with teaching or learning, but it sure did make me laugh. And when I think about it, stuff like this happens all day everyday when you spend your days with 22 seven year olds. :) Do you have any funny stories???
