I am convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that my students are the best students in the world…
I am currently amassing YEARS worth of anecdotal proof to back up my claims, HOWEVER, I would like to share a few of the more wonderfully funny/sweet/amazing pieces that have happened thus far this year!
My already-random background became that much more random after the artistic stylings of one fantastic student!
Translation: I am a squirrel, you?”
A doodle removed from one student’s paper. . . A full scale stereotype-off: England V. France
When completing a simple warm-down, I get the BEST sentences.
Translation? Every day, I feed my brother to my lion.
I have candy in my classroom, but candy is not just a sweet treat. OH no. Candy (Abby-style) is a way of life. THUS, we take the lessons we get from Dove chocolate very seriously. Truly ingenious statements are often kept and posted in a visible place (my mini bulletin board) in the classroom. This is the 2nd consecutive year that we have featured the best “Tough Love Dove” saying of all time:
Okay, this one is NOT actually mine. But I thought it was still amazing. This is one of those student misspells that is WONDROUS. My English-Teacher-Friend was kind enough to explain the difference in meaning between missionary and mercenary to my lovely student! Needless to say, we got it all squared away and there are no more Mormon mercenaries to be found in anyone’s papers.
Exhibit F (for FRENCH!):
Puns in a foreign language are not easily made, my friends. This is an ingenious translation of “Napoleon Toadapart” in keeping with the humorous class-joke-gone-viral that began with my showing of a youtube learning video that caught and subsequently spiraled wildly out of control with shocking speed!
Sometimes my lovely students leave me notes and reminders that make me smile on a bad day!
Facebook Conversations about French are taking place and being shared with me via screencap. . . and not just any old Facebook conversations. FUNNY ones.
They are funny and clever when it comes to remembering French Grammar!
They write me fun notes on quizzes!
They know I am not-so-secretly in love with Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries!
