this week began my student teaching experience in the 2nd grade.
it's only been two days and i have learned quite a bit.
-drinking three water bottles before noon does not bode well for the ol' bladder.
teachers pretty much only get to pee once a day during lunch. no bueno.
-second graders will hold you to anything you say, especially if treats are involved.
-if you give the whole class a bathroom/water break, without a doubt at least one kid will ask to go to the bathroom ten minutes later.
-second graders think you are cool if you sit on the ground with them, and not in the "teacher chair."
-even second graders think jacob from twilight is attractive.
one little girl wrote a story today called,
"My hot boyfriend, Taylor Lautner."
-second grade boys have stinky feet.
-unfortunately in second grade, girls can be catty.
-i will probably be called "teacher" until my last name changes.
apparently vanchiere is just too hard to remember.
-second graders say some pretty great things.
"teacher, you got it goin on! those boots look nice on you." - little boy
"i wish the school day wasn't over, i'm not ready to quit learning." - little girl
"i want to be just like my mom when i grow up, do you know what she does?.... She goes to bars and sings karaoke." - little girl
second graders are pretty dang precious.
all 30 of them.
