I always wonder what the teachers are thinking of my students that I had last year that they are starting new classes with...what idiosyncrasies did I help place that will come back up? One of the third grade teachers told me that she had heard about our apology of action already.
Which brings me to my blogging for today...I have three students who are labeled MI. To be honest, I'm not sure how much to expect this year. During morning meeting, I told the class that they were going to have to write down ways that they hurt people or ways people hurt them. One of my MI students said, "Do you mean on the inside or the outside?"
I don't know about you...but that was way beyond anything I had thought. People do hurt us on the inside AND the outside and he was able to vocalize that for everyone...I am so excited to create our apology of action chart and he was one who was able to really push the conversation and hopefully, comments deeper. Just when I don't expect anything, God shows up!
