A Fun Linky Party!

I am joining a fun Linky Party sponsored by Lory over at Fun For First! Head over and see what fun she has going on!

I am always amazed that as first grade teachers, we can say some of the things that we say and not be phased at all. Sometimes I reflect on my previous students and could actually sit at my desk and laugh until I cry! One year I had a child that was a very "sensory" learner. He always had his hands in his mouth and I was CONSTANTLY sending him to the sink to wash his hands. Apparently, I had never told him that he should not put his knees in his mouth. I tried thoughout the math lesson to give him some non-verbal cues to stop because I did not want to embarrass him. No go. I finally had to just say "Please STOP licking your knees so we can get back to work". The most amazing thing was that we did not miss a beat. Not one of the kids even giggled at this. It was just our norm that year.

I love first grade!

  3. Oh I know what you mean. Sometimes in desperation I just come right out and say, "Please stop picking your nose," and no one even blinks. Ha ha!
