Today I had about ten minutes to kill before another teacher was going to come teach my class a lesson. Being the world's best teacher, I always have something productive planned for my students, just in case we ever have down time. ... not.
Considering their previous behavior, I asked them to fill in the blank:
While Mrs. Smith is in here....
here are some of their answers
...I will not pick my nose
...do not punch her in the face
...do not throw a banana at her
...do not act like we are acting now
...raise our hands before talking
...no eating pickles
...do not embarass Mrs. Howard
This activity went over with such astounding reviews, I lead a similar activity at the end of the day. It was called give a tip. Here are some tips from the smartest 12 year olds on the planet.
-don't try to sneak up on a skunk
-don't put a lite fire cracker in a beer bottle
-don't take a shower with your cell phone
-don't forget to do your friend's homework
-don't scream into the phone when your mom calls
-don't eat pancakes naked
Yep. My job is interesting.
