Short and Sweet!

Monday, January 23, 2012
Tonight is a short and sweet post! I just HAD to take a moment to share a hilarious story. =)

Today at school we were reviewing vocabulary words for our test tomorrow. One of our words for the week is "Concentration". I always have a student define the word and then we talk about it. I always like to relate the word to my students' lives. So I asked the question, "When is a time you might need concentration?" I got answers from reading, to taking a test, and even when playing video games. Can anyone guess where one brave student said you might need concentration?... the bathroom! I almost DIED. Kids say the most hilarious stuff. That is one reason I love my job. =)

Did you have any funny student moments at your school today?
I would LOVE to hear them! =)

On another note, I am SUPER excited about the rock unit we are doing this week in my classroom. We are talking about the rock phases and our lessons include making EDIBLE rocks. This is going to be so much fun! I can't wait to share it with you guys and I will make sure to take some pictures.

Do any of you teach your students about rocks? 
What types of activities do you do?
