Arts and crafts with 5th and 6th grade. We used special paper, folded it in some complicated fashion, and dipped it in paint.

My elementary school does weekly body quizzes. This one is about how much blood would you have to lose to die!

My contribution to the Tanabata ceremony. One of my co-workers made the cute alligator though.

I was asked to draw some vegetables and a rabbit for this poster. Another teacher colored it in. It’s a chart for who will feed the rabbit over the summer and the foods it  eats.

Someone’s grandmother brought in this turtle today. What was strange was she brought it in a grocery bag (I imagine she just found it and that was the only means of transporting it). One of my 6th graders claimed it, found a bucket, and put it in. He took it home in another grocery bag though. ^^; 

During cleaning time, we put the turtle off to the side and while I was sweeping away, in the corner of my eye, I saw its little head pop up like that. I had to stop and take a picture. So cute! I hope he lives a happy life with my student!

Signs of Affection
  • A first grader greeting you by whacking you on the arm with a flag
  • A first grader saying goodbye to you by tapping your boobs repeatedly
  • A fifth grader giving you a high five only to grab your hand and squeeze your knuckles together to make you yelp
  • A fifth grader who headbutts you and rams into you with his stomach
  • An arrangement of students trapping you in a corner and tickling you
  • A first grader wiping her wet hands on the back of your shirt
  • A fourth grader jumping on your back and assuming you’ll give them a ride if you’re on your hands and knees for any reason
  • A first grader giving you a kancho (being poked up the butt…I wish I was kidding)
