wow

From time to time an assignment comes along that just makes you spit your coffee all over your desk.  I have a policy, unbeknown to the kids, that if a homework assignment makes me laugh out loud, they get 100%.  This would be one of them. 


another good 6th grader story

One of the PE teachers told me this story on Friday, it had us all rolling on the ground with laughter. 

My co-worker, Annie, had all the students seated on a flight of stairs outside. 

Annie: Everyone sitting behind Jacob, get up and move to the field. 
Crickets and blinking eyes.
Annie:  Everyone behind Jacob, get up and move to the field. 
Jacob stands up and moves.
Annie:  Everyone behind Jacob, get up and move to the field. 
More crickets and blinking eyes. 
Annie: Akljdf asdlfjal laksjdflkaeiojcf laksdjlfkjasjdf  sdfowiejflkas.  (Very loudly in pure gibberish terms.)
Kid in class:  WHOA!  She speaks Chinese!

Whatever it takes to get their attention…
