What She Wore: denim pencil skirt; white short-sleeve tee; red, cropped crocheted sweater; red and white strappy sandals.
It has been an extremely busy week. We’ve had parent-teacher confrences in the afternoon and yesterday I went to a ninth-grade football game to see some of my old students play on the field and in the band. But, I’ve survived and had one heck of a week. Here are a few little snippets:
We were playing a test review game and the kids were arguing over whether its worse to guess on a test question or leave it blank. We’ve only had the kids a couple of weeks, so we haven’t had the time to brain wash them into NEVER leaving a question blank. One of the student passionately argued her point, "if you guess, you might get a point or two just for trying, but if you leave it blank, you ain’t gettin’ jack!"
We’re thinking of making that our new motto.
Yesterday we were playing a game with a beach ball to help the kids practice working with exponents. The ball has numbers on it. They bounce it around the room to each other and the places their fingers touch become a problem to solve. The rules are simple: if you get out of your desk, you lose a point. The ball was headed right towards one of our tiny girls who gets very excited ab out things. She leaned with all her might to get the ball–and fell straight out of her desk! After we discerned that she was OK, we laughed our butts off.
We didn’t take a point off, though.
Hope your weekend is wonderful!
