be very careful before you ask them to say "squirrel".

hahahahaha, yeah. but i mean, i just wanted her to repeat after me. the whole class had already counted through the numbers twice together. i felt like an evil witch lady or something...

Just goes to show, you shouldn't hit your students when they don't do somethng you want them too.

I'm surprised at you...

dude, japanese teachers whack their kids over the head all the time. i think she was crying cuz i DIDN'T hit her...twisted little girl...

That is pretty twisted. Maybe they see the hitting as love. Now that you've had this experience, you know what to do. ;)

Sometimes kids are like that! I've had one student that would cry on a daily basis.. And it can be painful at first when you make them cry, but the sad fact of the matter is you quickly learn to put up with it.

this is the first time i've had a crying student! i didn't realize 12 would be so traumatic! i'm sure i'll learn to cope, but i mean...twelve?!

I told one of my kids that we were going apple picking tomorrow and he went into convulsions. Not real ones but flopping on the floor signing "NO, NO, NO" over and over for about 2 minutes. So beat that! ;-)

okay, you got me beat there for sure. hope they change their mind about apple pickin'!

I hate twelve too. I understand her. She and I have a special bond. Twelve is a symbol for time. And time is a mean mean mean monster.
