Okay! Here I go attempting my first linky party! Who doesn’t like to laugh?
I became a teacher because I love children, and they do say the darndest things! Sometimes that is how I get through my days remembering the funny things that they say and do! Who couldn’t use a good laugh in the middle of the week? So here is how this will work(at least I hope!):
1. Tell a funny about something that happened at school this week.
2. Tell about something funny personally (keep it clean) whether it be a story about something that happened to you or something funny you found out here in cyberspace!
3. Come back here, link up your tee-hee, then start reading other funnies! I do Farley’s currently every month, so let’s use her rule of 3: Comment on the 2 before and the 1 after yours! Even if it is just a “tee-hee”!
So here is goes for me:
1. At school this week we have had to be inside because of the weather. Two of my kiddos have been devestated because they have been digging a hole on the playground (gasp!) and were sure that they were going to find treasure. So, we finally got outside the other day and sure enough, they found something! It was a baggie with a broken wheel from a toy. They were elated, but a little reluctant to share. At the end of the day that day, they walked up to me to ask: “Mrs. Gard, how would be buy the area under the slide on the playground?” They decided to stake their claim! They were very upset when I told them I didn’t think that it was for sale!
2. I found this funny on Facebook, it made me LOL:
A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement.
He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.
‘Al-Gebra is a problem for us’, the Attorney General said. ‘They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values.’ They use secret code names like “X” and “Y” and refer to themselves as “unknowns” but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country. As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, “There are 3 sides to every triangle.”
When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, “If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes.” Thank you to the Hazel Owl for the cute circle badge that I used to create my button! 🙂
This notebook has been so valuable for tracking reading progress! I have created multiple notebooks for multiple grades. I have found this to be so helpful for keeping on the same page with my aide as well. We can both pop into this and see what work has been done with which students! Thank you for this wonderful teaching aide!
