First day back from maternity leave with three new groups of kids who were great and a day (well half a day is all I work) that went mercifully fast.
We got right to things with the everyday class working on name girds and the every other day class doing some group circle paintings ( I was curious what middle school students would do with circle paintings) photos of both lessons to come by the end of this week.
Anyway I loved what one young lady said to me in the cafeteria today. She came up to me and declared, "Your back! Your not pregnant, you had a baby, you got a cute new haircut....your skinny," and then she walked away. Wow way to sum up the past 12 weeks little lady! I will say texting and facebook status has make my students more concise and pity in their observations/comments.
