Holey Moley this was one Loooooonnnggg Monday. Recess duty allllllll day and it’s been in the 80’s here so the kiddos already think it is SUMMER and have completely tuned out to anything educational!
We had a few little conversations about that bit of news today which went something like: “it is not summer yet you still have LOTS of LEARNING to do before the end of school.” And it spiraled from there.
“No you may NOT take your shoes off in class, and yes you must do your work.”
“I’m sorry you went to the lake this weekend and you got sunburnt, no you may not pull your shirt OFF your shoulders.”
“No, you cannot take all your work home to do, but you may take a note telling mom about what you did instead of your work.”
“Yes, I love your new flip-flops; I’m sorry people keep stepping on them because they are too big.”
“No you may not go dump the sand out of your pants right now, do not sit in the sand pile with shorts on.”
And finally one
little stinker lovely sweetheart yelled said in her loud voice (which is the only voice she has) “MY BROTHER SAYS THERE IS ONLY 17 DAYS OF SCHOOL LEFT.”
To which I
promptly broadcast pleasantly replied “no there are much more than 17 days left and it wouldn’t matter if there were 7 you still need to keep quiet and complete your work. we still have so much left to do and learn.”
Seriously we still have like 27 days left and in real time that’s A MONTH and A HALF!
