today i laughed. my second graders are really funny. sometimes i forget that i love them, so i am always grateful for days like today that remind me to enjoy my students. we started a new theme in reading called "talent show". all the stories in this theme will be about talents. trying to build some background i asked my students to share with a neighbor what their special talents were. here were some of my favorite answers:
- i can pop my thumb knuckle
- i can burp the abc's
- i ride my scooter until dark (i don't think he understood the question)
- i can tell jokes and dance
- i do my homework
- i can ride my bike up to 1 mile an hour (i had him repeat this just to make sure i heard right)
they seriously crack me up!
