Where would I be....

Where would I be without my students!

I love each and everyday with them because it is always new and exciting! Some days they are so sweet and others they want to test me!!

On Tuesday, one of my students brought me in the most beautiful flowers ever and they smell incredible.

I love them and I have enjoyed smelling them all week!

Some of the things I have learned this year teaching third grade I want to share with you! I should have kept up with these things through out the year! I will try to do better

Lesson one: If you tell them something, you better follow through or you'll never hear the end of it.

Lesson two: Pennies often gets misspelled as: penis. I laughed for a long time at this until I was used to it and we learned to spell it correctly.

Lesson three: Sometimes you need to just shut you hears as a teacher and pretend you don't hear what they are saying. One of my boys told another boy, "You have a one eyed snake too."
Not sure what that was about, but I choose not to address it.

Lesson four: It's never to early or late to ask you what being a late bloomer means. UMMMM.. no answer for this question.

Lesson five: ( A personal favorite from the year) I gave a OPEN book Science test over water and the water cycle.
The questions asked: Precipitation might be _____, ______, _____, and _____.
Simple enough one might think.....yet the answer I received was:

Precipitation might be hell, shit, swom, and water.

I about fell out of my chair laughing!!!

Those are the funny things I can remember at the moment! I will try to do better and post more often about these things. I love each and everyone of my students and thank God for them each day! I couldn't have a better job!
