Started today at a new Elementary school and it was great! When I came here I was placed at 2 middle schools, and one tiny elementary school where I never planned anything (20 kids in the whole school). This school is a little bigger (around 60), and I planned my first "big" elementary lessons today. I love these kids! I'm sure there will be plenty of weak days and I'm sure deep down I will learn to be annoyed by them, but compared to my middle school full of loud and obnoxious boys, this is a piece of cake!

Elementary is hell... I teach 3 days a week elementary and it is soul destroying-no-understanding-shouty-fighty-madness. Those 2 days I teach Middle, today and Monday are the reasons I came to this thread :) Good luck. May the 3rd and 4th graders not destroy you.

I guess everyone is different! I love my little ones. Hate the 6th graders' bad attitudes and lack of motivation. Give me cute but crazy and enthusiastic 3rd 4th graders all day every day!

Teachers' Day is this Sunday, so the students at my school have been making buttons for their teachers. I wasn't expecting to get any, but I've actually gotten four so far.

Don't let that top left one fool you, though. I don't come to work in ABC boxer shorts, and I only wear my halter tops like three days a week, tops.

EDIT: Holy balls, huge pic was huge. Sorry 'bout that. Resized it.

It's entirely possible! He actually said it several times but i couldn't distinguish if he said dung or 똥, haha. Either way, pretty much the same meaning, eh?  :laugh:

I'm having the kids draw comics this week using the target language of the current chapter.

Realized yesterday that the kids really need a sample comic to help inspire them and speed up the process a bit, so I drew one today of a drowsy unicorn because I'm drowsy today and I love unicorns.

One of my kids asked me if the unicorn was on crack.

I couldn't be more proud.

So I didn't know if this was a rant or a rave so I decided to put this here because it ended on a good note.

Yesterday after school I went on my usual running route. This was only my 3rd time running and I had already discovered a route I like that involves passing by the downtown police station. Well I started to get a bit impatient this time with the waiting time so I pushed the crosswalk button. Once the light changed I started to run again and within minutes 4 cops flew past me and I got to wonder why. It was then that I realized I had pressed an police emergency response button. Whoops. I just kept on running hoping that nothing would happen. But man was that one nerve racking run. I decided to run past the police station just to see if they would do anything or even notice that it was I that had pushed the button. I did it and nothing happened. Guess it's safe to say I'm okay.  :afro:

:laugh: :laugh: My husband almost pressed what I suspect was a panic button the other day. I practically shouted, "Don't!" because I had a feeling it wasn't the crosswalk button (even though I didn't know what it was). Glad he didn't press it because we were strolling, not running!

That is so hilarious, I have tears in my eyes. Thanks for sharing your awkward mistake ;D

Oh gosh, I did almost do that didn't I... That would've been terrible  :laugh:
Label these things in English as well, come now, you gotta think that's a good idea. Just one word "emergency" understood by almost everyone who can read the roman alphabet, English or otherwise.  :undecided:

There's 6 grade 2 girls (whom I don't teach) that are in my class and they are all giggling and Gai-Bai-Boing each other. The loser has to come say "Hello" to me. Theyre on round 7.

Too cute.

My students crack me up.  They're designing restaurant menus right now, and I came to check on a table doing a really expensive steak restaurant.  They have food ranging between $50 and $150, but then this one side dish for $0.10 labeled "bread for 장발장"

장발장 is Jean Valjean.  From Les Mis.  They said it's "bread for poor people so they can still eat at the restaurant" omfg  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:
