A phone that gives you all the answers?

14 Oct

It’s finally the weekend!  Arent’ you excited?  I sure am.  There are football games to watch and walk to…walk in. 

Thursday I finally got to actually step int one of these:

Oh yeah!  Complete with hot water!  It was the best thing ever!  And by the by, my shower totally looks just like that, totally!

School News

Today in guided reading the kids were particularly on point with their comments. 

I have a “phone” available if the kids want to use it while reading.  I know you’ve seen ’em before…

You hold it up while reading so that you can hear yourself, thusly hear any mistakes you make and hopefully correct them.

One of the students had never used one before so I encouraged him to do so.  He seemed to really like it, but after a moment or so he told me, “I don’t think I want to use this anymore, it’s giving me all the answers!”  I about died.  I told him that’s what it was supposed to do.  The seemed to calm his fears and he used it the rest of guided reading.

In my other guided reading group, we were talking about blizzards and the question came up about frostbite.  They wanted to know what it was and what happened once you got it.  Once I explained it, a student asked, “So, is that what happened to Michael Jackson’s nose?” 

Ah exsqueeze me? 

I told him I didn’t know what happened to MJ’s nose and that he chose to have it that way. 

Oh children…
