School Tidbits...

Yesterday a student thought it would be smart to plug in his phone with a charger that was in pieces, wires sticking out all over, and it shocked him.  He seemed surprised. Strangely enough, he had a scab on his elbow, and the scab came off and blood started coming out his arm. I asked him about 900 times if he was okay or did he need to go to the nurse, and he said he was fine. It made for a great story the rest of the day. And left a blood splot on the floor.

A student was making a poster, used a black permanent marker, and it bled onto the tile floor below. You could read the words on the tile. She was mortified.  The custodian laughed.

Answers on Chapter 7 of Great Gatsby Quiz...funny, but funnier if you've read GG.
  • Gatsby is sharpening his ax at the end of the chapter because he is going to brutally murder Tom and Daisy. 
  • Why did Myrtle probably run out into the road? Because she needed to get to the other side. 
  • Who killed Myrtle? The butler in the kitchen with a wrench. 
  • Who killed Myrtle? The chicken she was following kicked him and made him fall.

This is the time of the year when kids realize their grades aren't what they want, and start begging for extra credit, asking for extra work when they've slacked off all year long. Makes me cranky with them.

Apparently I'm getting a student teacher again next fall? Sign me up.
