For those of you who may be new, or may have forgotten, this is how we roll in my classroom:
Boy student: Miss ____, how do you spell line?
Boy student: How do you spell line?
Me: Line? As in don't talk in line?
Boy student: (smacking his lips together) Mttttz. Nah, not that word.
Girl student: He means LION. Like Miss _____ is tough like a lion and is going to eat choo.
Boy student: Yeah! Yeah! That word!
Me: OH! L-I-O-N. (Grabbing his shoulders) RAWR!
Boy student: (not flinching at all) I'm not scared. Even if you were a lion you wouldn't eat me.
Me: You're not scared of me? You should be scared of me. I'm hungry.
Boy student: Pshht. I've ain't scared of you. You won't eat me. You're a veg-e-tarian...I would only be scared if I was a carrot stick.
His finished project for our class book of similes: Miss _____ is tough like a lion but don't be scared unless you are a carrot stick. Complete with a picture of me attacking a carrot.
Yup. That's how we roll in my class.
