I would like to thank...
NearlyClever for THIS awesome idea. Active and Passive Voice was on the English agenda today, so I had the kids act as zombies and do different things. We then came up with sentences for both voices. The kids had a blast and then came up with their own Halloween inspired active and passive voice sentences. Here are a few… The punkin zombie carved my sister. My sister was carved by the...
Student: Hey, Miss At, what are you and [Joserisms] going to do tonight for Halloween? Me: He’s coming over and we’re going to pass out candy. Student: Really? I thought you guys would snuggle on the couch and watch a scary movie… That would never happen because he would be like this the whole time:
Instead of grading like I should be,
I’m making my 8th graders pumpkin brownies for Halloween.
Me: J_____________! Why aren't you working on your homework?!
Student: Oh, sorry. I couldn't get to my seat cause he was scooping me...
Bear Grylls = Bob Ross
“Hey, I know who that guy is! That’s Bear Grylls when he gets older.”
littlemisslovelytimes asked: Teacher Dare Day: What is your favorite part about being a teacher?
girlwithalessonplan asked: Teacher dare day: What do you like best about your new job?
Student 1: Hey, Miss At! I know why you can see the moon during the day!
Student 2: Well then preach it brother, preach it!
Me: What shape is a plant cell?
Student: (shouting) What??
Me: What shape is a plant cell?
Student: Oh, no, I heard you fine the first time.
“Whoa, J______! You look different. Did you brush your teeth or something?”
We have power!!
My classroom is now functioning properly.
Today is Crazy Sock Day
“Hey Miss At, are you actually wearing crazy socks, or do they just have cats on them?”
My classroom hasn’t had power since LAST Monday. It’s getting harder and harder to teach.
I wanted to watch men civilly battle it out...
so I watched the SF Giants vs. St. Louis Cardinals game instead of the debates. WORLD SERIES, YA’LL!!!!!!!
“What if they didn’t sell any corn here? What if like all they sold were pretzels?” Said at the cornmaze.
Discussing the Debates
A few 8th grade thoughts while discussing the debates… “Why can’t they just answer the questions?!” “I think the old man was mean, and a little wise.” “Everyone deserves a second chance.” “My mom’s for Obama, and my dad’s for Romney. It’s really awkward.”
Guess what's so awesome?!
And by “so awesome,” I really mean SO LAME! Finding out halfway through the day that the air conditioning and electricity will be out in my classroom for the rest of the week. Tonight I need to buy some handheld sharpeners…
So I promised...
a student from the last two years that I would advertise his humor page on facebook. He was the author of Turkey’s Revenge: Part 2, many “Hey, Miss At” quotes, and is probably the reason a lot of you follow this blog in the first place. He is quite a hoot. I’m pretty sure if I don’t post this link anytime soon, he will not speak to me for 10 years. So here you go,...
Student 1: Don't touch me. Your hands are dirty.
Student 2: The whole world is dirty!!
“Sticking tongues out is for little girls!” yelled the 8th grade boy.
“Hey Miss At, if there’s a book called Bro Code, you should read it to us.”
I just walked in the door from staff meeting, turned on my dvr so I could catch up on the debates, and….uhhh…. FOX?!?! You say you’re showing the debate, but really you’re showing crappy comedy shows. Now how am I going to handle my class discussion tomorrow?! You’re a jerk, FOX. JERK.
Right as I was locking the classroom door, an 8th grade boy comes running over… “WAAAAIT!! I need to get my lunchbox! If I forget this one, I have to bring a pink one tomorrow.”
A Whole New World
Me: I thought you went to go get your English book.
Student: Well, I coudn't find it. It's in my locker somewhere, but when I open it, it's like another world in there....like a fairytale movie or something.
