The other students greeted my arrival in the classroom with a chorus of, "Teacher, is it okay if I forgot to bring my presentation?" Well, no it fucking isn't actually. Teacher has been drilling the due date into your little heads for a solid month. You've all been sloppy with the dates for brainstorming and rough copies and teacher is sick of it. You will all lose points. This isn't rocket science, grade 5 students: every month on monthly test day YOU DO A FREAKING PRESENTATION.
Just when all the discouraging marking (2B and 3A-b are all incredibly bad at grammar) and the lack of presentations was about to make my head explode, I went on Facebook and saw this:
Gary: You'd think after months if not years of taking the same test each month that a kid would be able to remember how to operate a bubblesheet. You'd think that...but you'd be wrong. Very wrong.Gratitude. Something that even the smallest things can bring on.
Anika: Teacher, do writing?
Amanda :Hahaha. Yeah, that used to be my life. Of the many shitty things about my present school, forcing us to deal with bubblesheets is thankfully not one of them.
