Has someone invaded my students bodies and brains? They do not remember our classroom or school procedures at all. These haven't changed since the first day, heck I had some of these kids in PK and K and my rules haven't changed since then!!! I mean we still walk with our hands in our pockets or behind backs and we don't talk in hallways so we don't interrupt anyone.
Aside from that, I got a new student yesterday.
Getting a new student is like eating with a blindfold. You never know what you're biting into.
It could be delicious sweet cake with gooey chocolaty icing or a bitter pickle! Guess what I got?
When you're departmentalized you don't have a true homeroom. Friday we have early release (and parent/teacher conferences in the afternoon) and my homeroom students are soooo excited to spend the whole day with little' ol' me.
Today, we played a review game. I printed out 5 sets of questions, cut them up and labeled them 1-8. Then, I put them into gallon baggies. I took my kiddos to the gym, numbered them off 1-5. Then, each group got a dry erase board, marker and eraser. They sat at half court and when I said go, one person ran to get the #1 out of the baggie. They took it back to their group, read the Q and wrote their answer on the white board. Then, I called for answers. All groups with the right answer, got a point. I did this with 3 classes, 15 groups and NOT ONE student ever figured out that it didn't matter how fast they ran! haha. Every group cheered their runner on like they were running a marathon. I didn't care who was first or last, I just wanted a correct answer!!
This Little Piggy is OUT of ink, again!
