Maybe Think it Through Next Time

First Graders laugh at pretty much any joke anyone tells them, so sometimes I'll let one or two of them rattle one off. They always laugh. Aaron ended that theory.

AARON: What did the pickle say to the astronaut?
AARON: Please don't eat me.
CLASS: (silence)
MR. BOWERS: (silence)
CLASS: (more silence)
MR. BOWERS: Did you make that one up?

Crying Now

Kentrell was having trouble behaving and I told him I was going to call his mom...he continued misbehaving:

MR. BOWERS: Kentrell, do you really want me to call you mom?
KENTRELL: No, I want you to call my dad.
MR. BOWERS: What? And tell him that you are misbehaving?
KENTRELL: No, tell him that I miss him.

Some New Students

We got two new students at our school and they have the most awesome names! It's like I have been waiting for this day forever. Their names are Dynasty and Luther! What a wonderful day!

We also got a new student last week named Paul (not that exciting) and he is hearing impaired. Turns out that this new kid named Luther knows sign language--someone is looking out for our school!

We usually get new students this time of year because the parents received the first report cards and weren't happy with the grades, so they changed schools. That makes sense, right?

I'm Done

I'm tired of what you are teaching me, I went to bed late last night, you are boring...basicly, I'm calling it a day.
