You know you have a great class when...

1) Your first homework assignment is to write each spelling word twice.
And half a dozen kids didn't do the assignment because they didn't understand the directions.

2) A student asks if they can go to the bathroom. You say yes.
And he goes and stands outside the bathroom door, looking bewildered, for a full minute. So you explain that he should knock, then enter as long as no one says anything from inside the bathroom.

3) You are discussing what they already know about rivers to launch our science unit on the River Basin System.
And one student says rivers have water in them.

4) It takes one student four days to figure out that the student sitting directly next to him hasn't been in school.
And the other twenty three haven't even noticed.

I have more stories but I am sure you are getting the idea. I can already tell it is going to be a very interesting year!

I know you've said it before but you really can't make this stuff up!

Tina said...

Yeah, but rivers do have water in them. Without the water, it would just be dirt.

wow. i'm suddenly grateful for my (apparently) gifted 3-year-olds.

oh, wait. except for the fact that half of them still aren't potty-trained. right.
