Apparently since school is out for the majority of the district (and that’s another whole pet peeve), someone has too much free time. They have put a filter block on blogs. I can’t get to my school blog from school anymore. Oddly, I can still access blogs to read through Google Reader, I just can’t go directly to the blogs proper, and I can’t post. I guess it’s no surprise, I was a little surprised I could l get to them in the first place.
Today we were doing math and I was trying to get the kids to figure out how to divide up a bunch of Unifix Cubes into equal piles. Getting them to problem solve is like pulling teeth. Actually, I think I’d RATHER pull teeth. After working at it on the rug for about 45 minutes, and still dealing with a lot of glazed over eyes, I put my head down on the floor and said, “I want my Momma, I think I’m going to cry.” My new kid (the one driving me crazy) said, “Mr. B’s not going to cry, he’s a MAN.” Then he nudged me (I had my face down in my hands), “Come on Mr. B. – MAN UP – be a MAN.”
Where do they get this stuff?
