|We went to the White House Garden Tour with some friends. It was real cold and real wet, so we made it a quick tour.|
Things I've Recently Discovered:
1. My students may be smarter/more knowledgeable than I am. Case in point: I am reading The Enormous Egg out loud to the class, and so we had to have a discussion today about what period the Triceratops dinosaurs lived in. This led to a looooong explanation from numerous students about the different time periods during which the dinosaurs lived. Huh?
2. If you read Charlotte's Web to your class, expect them to call every spider they see "Charlotte." They will also be upset if you insist on killing these spiders. You'll have to kill these spiders while they are gone or you'll never hear the end of it.
3. If your class finds out you're not only deathly afraid of spiders, but bees as well, they will try to find every opportunity to trick you into thinking there is a spider and/or bee on you. I may have shrieked today when I thought one of children was holding a giant spider.
