Want to know the biggest problem I have with my students??????? They want to discuss everything!
Not a bad problem to have! In fact, I welcome it. I have found that my students this year (most of them, anyway) would rather be late for lunch or recess so that they can talk more about our books and how they relate to the skills we are learning. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed and under appreciated Thursday evening about school related matters. By Friday at noon, my students had given me a rejuvenated spirit and feeling of purpose. I walked out to recess (late, mind you) with a smile a mile wide simply because of my students.
These great people that I have the honor of spending time with every day, make such intelligent and thought provoking comments daily. They amaze me. I make notes at the end of each day to capture the best student comments heard. Below are my top ten picks of the week. I hope you get a kick out of them! (Students: if you see a quote from you, join in the discussion by commenting below)
Isn’t it ironic that Katniss chose Rue as an ally because she reminded her of Prim, but she ended up being more like Katniss?
Mrs DuBose, I didn’t think you could help me spice up my writing at all but I’m starting to sound like a real author. Want to blog about me?
Mrs. DuBose, can I go to the writing table and write a story?
