I was helping one of my students log on to the computer today. As I sat in the tiny chair, she stands on her tiptoes to look down at my head. "Ms. Andrews, you have soooo many pretty colors in your hair. You have brown, GREY and that yellow!" I just smiled and said "Thank you." I guess it's time to go hit the salon!
I added a new desk to my room that sits away from where our class meets for whole group or independent work time. The reason for the desk is for a student of mine who is having difficulties staying on task and socializing a little too much! Of course the children were all about the new DESK in our room and wanted to know all about it. So, I explained that the desk is for any student that is having problems with making good choices. I continued to say, "the desk DID NOT like to have naughty children sit with him," and a student yells out, "Desk do NOT have feelings!"
