So many things happened today that I just had to share...
2. I fell UP the stairs today at school. In front of my whole class. Don't worry, though, it was only mildly embarrassing.
3. We thought our sixth graders accidentally ruined one of the 7th grade roller coaster projects in the back of the room and spent about 10 minutes lecturing them about respecting other peoples' property. After, when I went to tell the 7th grade teacher who shares the classroom, she told us that it was already like that. Oops! Kudos to my sweet students who felt super guilty and even tried to come up with plausible explanations of how they may have knocked it down.
4. We got to listen to one of the original Jock Jams CDs in PE this week while my group was working out in the fitness center (cardio machines and circuit training). I am not ashamed to admit that I was singing and dancing along to every song, starting with Coolio's "1,2,3,4..."My students looked at me like I was crazy, but I couldn't resist. Best PE class ever!! Anyone else with me on that?!
5. I asked student to help one of my SPED babies find the right page in our science book for our read aloud. Not only did he direct her to the correct place, but he used his finger to guide her through the reading for the ENTIRE class. And then he volunteered to put up her chair for her at the end of the day. Holy sweetness!
