Mrs. Brooks = Dr. Doolittle?
I know I’ve been caught whispering to myself endless times, but I really never knew what an animal whisperer I was until this school year. It seems that our classroom sink is a safe haven for all sorts of creatures, and yesterday was no exception.
Look who was hanging out in our sink yesterday!
Why I LOVE my students: I casually scooped up the slug, and secretly held it while I finished teaching a math problem on the SMARTBoard, and then flipped on the doc camera for an impromptu Show and Tell. Once the camera focused, and the kids recognized what I was holding, they giggled and chatted a bit, and some changed their position to get a better look. About 90 seconds later, they were re-engrossed (is that a word?) in their math lesson as if there were never an interruption. Talk about flexible!
Can I keep them all summer? Not the slugs and bugs – but your children???
