So, my life right now is nothing but work. So, that's all my blog is about. Sorry!
I still loving it! It's tiring, but lots of fun! Most of the time. Today I had kids start yelling "He's cutting his hair!" I ran over to see what was going on. They were speaking of the boy that didn't like my clouds. Sure enough, lots of chunks of hair wer missing. And there was a big wad of hair in his hand. I very calmly took his scissors away and took him to the "thinking spot" while I figured out what to do. Second graders didn't cut their hair. I was at a loss. The teacher across the hall was teaching, so I couldn't interupt, so I calmly talked to him about what he did. He then told me that his mom had bought his scissors and they were hers and I had to give them back. Ha. No scissor for him for a long time. Then I may go buy a pair of the kind that only cut paper for him. (He cut a foam puzzle yesterday.) A few minutes after getting out of thinking time, he came up to me and told me his heart hurt. I asked why. Other kids were making fun of his hair. Seems like a good natural consequence to me.
It's going to be a fun year!
