Imperical Evidence

Transcript of a conversation I had with a child this morning whose brother, Jaime, was in my class two years ago: Me: Isreal, where's your homework? Isreal: At home. Me: Why? Isreal [with a shrug and a grin]: Because it's homework? Me [nodding]: I see the problem. Let's call it recess work then. I'll give you another paper and you can stay in and finish it. Isreal [bug-eyed]: I'll bring it tomorrow! Me [shaking my head]: Sorry, kid, too late. Isreal [slumping into seat and mumbling]: Jaime told me it wouldn't work.

man, he had the inside scoop from his brother and everything. Your reputation preceeds you. Guess he'll be doing his homework more often now, huh?

How do you think of those snappy come backs so fast? That's why I could never have been a teacher, the kids are all smarter than me!

Some people must learn through experience.

Hi Quilldancer,
empirical evidence

Do you ever let them get away with lame excuses - even if he'd claimed the dog had ate his homework, he would have still had to do it

Man, I wish my kids had you for a teacher!

My son's gym teacher called and said he disprupted the class five times and she had to stop the class. My question is "Why did she let him get away with it FIVE times?"(She talked to hubby and not me). I would have had him sit out after the second incident. Is it me or am I being a parent who does not understand teaching? I need to know and Ithtink I am going to call a meeting with all his teachers because it seems liek everyone is too soft on this kid.

Oh, but it was worth a try! Quilly-Sister, you are just too quick for these kids. That's a good thing. Kids are so smart now, and you better be smarter or they'll mow you down! LOL
