This year, we can't afford to have Hammerman Likens (aka Abraham Lincoln)
come back and talk to the children.

Instead, we will have Benjamin Franklin! I can't WAIT to read the name that the children create for him!!!

:rofl:

I can't believe Abe costs more than Franklin. A five versus a hundo...
And Ben was WAY cooler. I'd way rather meet him than Lincoln.

Although anyone that is FREE has the best shot this year.

The budget is really sadddd news in our state this year!!

:sadangel:

I'm praying that I get to keep some of my programs this year. We LOST our
On-line encyclopedias already because we have to pay to use them. So, kids are going to have to do research the old fashion way....using the BOOKS...the Encyclopedias in the Media Center.

Can't afford Modern Technology right now! :crying:

I've had a long and tough day today!


:rofl:



Second grader raises her hand after I did my lesson and assignment was given.

She tells me that she can't hear a THING in her headphones. (I look and headphones are still clipped to the table).

I tell her that she needs to put her headphones on her HEAD to be able to hear from them.

She says...."Oh."

:upeyes:

Not the sharpest tool in the shed!

Forgive me. It was a really tough day.

I ask questions they raise their hands to answer questions pertaining to my lesson.

"Mrs. B? Did you cut your hair?"

It was a VERY long day!

It's past my bedtime!

I found out yesterday, that a few of my students have NO LANGUAGE.

They have parents that speak different languages...e.g. Mom speaks english; Dad speaks spanish.

Child speaks...NOTHING!

Isn't that sad!!!!??????

We have to ask our students, "What language do you speak?" and legitimately the may not speak ANYTHING!!!!

That breaks my heart!

Just some food for thought.


I taught my daughters their names, address, and phone numbers...and our names and how to spell everything before they started Kindergarten. They also knew the difference between their legal names and their nicknames.

HOW does a child make it to the age of 5....the age where they may start school as a kindergartner legally, and have NO language, let alone know their basic information such as their name?


Maybe I'm just too old to continue in this profession or I care too much to let
it go past me without asking WHY or HOW does this happen????

I felt like as a parent, it was MY JOB to be sure they understood/knew some basic information by the time they entered Kindergarten?????

...WHY or HOW does this happen????



[serious mode ON]

I usually try and stay out of these things, but OK, I'll get 'serious' for a minute.

I think saying the students have "NO language" is probably an exaggeration. It almost has to be be. If they speak at all, they have a language. We might not recognize it, or it might be an amalgam of two or more that we do, but it is still a language.

Whether it hinders the child or helps him, a person of your faith surely knows that asking "WHY" these things happen serves no purpose. As for "HOW," it would seem you already know the answer.

You must also know that the situation you describe has been going on in various forms throughout America for a very long time. Some might even say the country was built by such people, and it would be hard to argue the point.

I'm sure it's not easy, but teachers are given the opportunity to help propel children toward better, richer lives. Do that, and I have no doubt at least some of those 5-yr-olds will grow up to live them.

Focus too much on the 'problem' (personally, I refuse to call it that), and it becomes yours. Wallow in it, and your students will suffer, too.

Be a teacher -- which you are -- and everybody wins.

HTH :wavey: :)

Absolutely the truth. The Franklin-Jefferson-Adams combo was the heart of the Founding Fathers, imho, and Ben was the glue that kept the other two together, and from killin each other at times.

Very adept statesman and mediator in that could quickly see the most advantageous position and the path to get there. It's surprising to most that he never held a position higher than Ambassador.

Franklin was offered many exalted positions with the fledgling government and turned them all down. His appointment as Ambassador to France was more of a convenience to support his bon vivant lifestyle than patriotic duty.

Not to say that he wasn't an effective ambassador, but ol' Ben enjoyed his life and understood that being a gubmint functionary was the last thing he wanted.

Atta boy, Ben! :thumbsup:

It was Franklin who said, "Gentlemen, we should all hang together or we shall most certainly hang separately."

He was also a perv. God only knows how many French children were his. :rofl:
