Questions and Laryngitis

The top three questions asked in my classroom on a daily basis..........

1. When are you going to turn the lava lamp on? So I thought a lava lamp would be a cool addition to my classroom.........until I realized they are obsessed with it. It may not last much longer.

2. How much longer until lunch? I say, "what time is it now?" They answer. Then I ask, "What time do we go to lunch every single day?" They answer. Then I sweetly tell them to figure the time left until the math! It's a learning opportunity people!

3. What are we doing next? We pretty much follow the same routine daily, ANNDDD I write the schedule on the when I hear this, I rarely speak. Pointing at the schedule without talking is my standard response. They should catch on by December.

And speaking of not speaking, I can't! My voice is completely GONE. I have been croaking and basically whispering all day. Tomorrow will be interesting. At least it's a Friday.......and a long weekend.

  2. I don't know why I didn't tell you this earlier and I know it sounds really gross, but I have done it before and it works......get a hot tottie, it helps get the voice back.

    Have you not got the can I go to the bathroom question.......five minutes after you just took them? I used to get that ALL the time!!!

  3. I love it!!! That's all I hear all day too! I have one boy who constantly asks that and I even made a copy of the schedule and stapled it into their agendas. Now if he asks, I just glare at him and the whole class whips out their agendas and say "Don't worry, Miss Sager, I'll tell him."

  4. Am I stupid? I don't know what a hot tottie is. We'll talk later.

  5. Sorry you are not feeling well. Hope you are better!
