So on Friday I was teaching World History for Mr. Peachy as my sub assignment. For reasons I can not explain the fifth time I taught the class we got done 20 minutes early ~I saw this coming about 10 minutes into the class these kids were quick and on task and seamed to be listening ~something that didn’t happen every hour, plus by now I had my speal pretty well down by then. Mr. Peachy had prepared two options for me if this happened.
1. I could have them read an extra chapter in the book.
2. I could let them watch a video on Vikings.
So I told the kids they had the two options to choose from and I would be making my decision based on their behavior.
~two hands shot up I called on the first student.
“ I really like your tights.”
“Thank you.” I said as I called on the second student.
“Your outfit is really cute.”
Now my hand goes up “you do not flatter subs by complimenting them on what they are wearing you flatter them by behaving and keeping quiet.” The students were quiet the rest of the hour and enjoyed 20 minutes of Vikings on video.
~Just for the record though my tights were really cute and the whole outfit really came together in my opinion as well as that of some really astute students.~
