One of my students just raised her hand and said she wanted to go home.
I asked her why and she mumbled something that sounded like
"I want to go home and play on tree limbs."
I replied with, "That sounds great! I haven't climbed a tree in a long time."
One of her fellow classmates remarked, "Mr. Donahue, she didn't say tree limbs. She wants to play on Free Realms." This is some sort of online video game. My students are 7 and 8 years old!
OK. I'm convinced. I need to spend more time on the Natural Teacher's page here at C&NNCONNECT.
Thanks for being there!
