circuit bugs (from Steam Powered Family's blog) with my 4th grade class. The cost was about $100 for enough supplies for my class of 28. I'm hoping that we can get them done in the next week, in time for Back to School Night.
4. STUDENT: I have glass in my backpack.
ME: Broken glass?!
STUDENT: No. This. (Student pulls out a jar of salsa, less than 1/3 full.)
STUDENT: To go with these. (Student pulls out a bag of tortilla chips.)
STUDENT: My mom gave it to me.
That was yesterday. The same student came into my classroom this morning holding a half-eaten can of Nacho Cheese Pringles with orange crumbs around lips, and got into line after recess holding a half-eaten bag of Funyuns.
5. If you were wondering how Breakfast in the Classroom was going, this morning, one of my children had pulled a string cheese apart to make it look like it had legs and was smearing it all over child's desk.
6. My husband and I went to our Classical Conversations parent orientation. Our CC community starts Monday, and I get to go because it's an unassigned day (Rosh Hashana) for my district.
