First, I gave a little survey to my kiddos at the beginning of the year to give them an opportunity to tell me a little bit about themselves. (Excuse the incorrect punctuation and spelling at times...just keepin' it real! :)
One of the questions said:
Is there anything else you want to share?
Yes that I'm looking forward to a great year!
(love her enthusiasm!)
Another response:I have 6 people in my family. I have a big black dog. I wanted you to be my teacher. Love, N
Another question asked:
Do you have pets? If you do, tell me about them.
I have 4 dogs there all crazy but not our old dog Happy. 2 cats that KILL ME for food and my humble hedgehog.
(I had no idea hedgehogs could be humble. :)
Another funny quote came during a work time as the kiddos were working at their tables. Somehow the conversation at one table turned to talking about God in school and who goes to church.
Boy: I don't go to church.
Girl: Well that explains a whole lot.
(Haha. Can you tell it any more like it is?!)
When grading beginning of the year pre-assessments for math, one of the questions stated:
Explain how you solved Problem 5c.
Out of pure nervousness!
(Gotta love the honestly.)
