Do you remember last week when I wrote about one of my students who was upset and complained to the Director of the school because I was trying to teach them & reading to them? Well, today, as I was writing the agenda on the board, he asked about Story time.
“Miss, how come you don’t read to us any more?,” he asked.
I told him that the class is too rowdy and noisy and no one can hear me read.
“Okay, so if we’re quiet, you’ll read to us?,” he asked.
I told him that I would, so he proceeded to shush the students. Now, let me make it clear. This “kid” is the tough guy of Middle School. For him to shush the kids so that I could read Lulu’s Hat by Susan Meddaugh was really saying something. So, although I wasn’t planning on reading it, he shushed the class and got them quiet, so I read two chapters to them. Guess what? They were actually quiet.
How’s that for progress?
