Day 2 and Day 3 of BIG TEST – The natives are getting restless

And I swear they are planning a rebellion on Friday. Shudder in fear all you teachers!

The new boy as well as five of my most hyper boys and two of my most absent-minded girls are testing my patience sorely. They got several good talking to today, in private during class time and during recess. The speech started out as “I understand you feel tired and restless, but you still have to follow the rules yadiya.” Then, as the day wore on, the conversation turned to, “I don’t EVEN need to to tell you why you’re here with me. YOU tell me why you’re here.” Predictably, they are dead-on for why they are having the discussion with me. That’s clear expectations for you.

We are having great fun playing with the tangrams during math. Didn’t miss a single session of physical education, otherwise known as “jog off that excess energy”. The only problem is our language arts program must continue on as scheduled.

  1. I don’t envy you. My school finished up the testing last week. Boy, am I happy! I also love physical education when they get a little unruly.
