I know it has been awhile since I have been on here. My intentions were to post at least a couple times a week, but I did not realize how bad teaching can get sometimes.
I have always told other teachers, after I left the field, to journal things that happen in their classes. You think you will remember the funny things that happen, but not all of them. I have been wanting to journal some of the things that happen to me, but I find myself doing other things (facebook, haha).
I am amazed how working with boys can be so entertaining. I am used to them because I have three nephews and one son. It’s all about poop, burps, and toots. So crazy!
We have been studying planets in science class. I made my students each choose a planet and write a report on it. They actually had to talk about their planets in class. Well, one of my students had the planet “Uranus.” I am sure you can see where I am going with this, but the whole time he mentioned “Uranus,” the class would giggle. The sad thing is that the poor boy did not have a clue, being that young, I do not think he even knew why it was so funny. He must have mentioned the name about thirty times, and every time that happened …. giggle. I tried to keep a straight face, but by the tenth time, I too lost it.
On another note, my son just asked me how people get babies in their tummies. He keeps asking that more and more these days. I am not going to put this off much longer.
