apparently i'm worse off than i thought
i've always known i had a big belly. can't deny that one. today, we were doing some "guess the covered words" activities. my little crappy student that is just already grating at my nerves to no end (not just cause of this... he's ornery & aggressive & everyday after recess, someone's had a problem with him not being able to keep his friggen hands to himself) so, we're doing guess the covered words. friday, i spent a great part of my planning time, personalizing our little reading passages... so i used our names. the one sentence that i used my name was: Miss Jones has a big _____. I get choices like: hair, head, desk, classroom. Then I call on my special little butthead. He says "butt" and breaks into a laugh. only, he was the only one. everyone else knew that was rude & didn't dare laugh. I excused him to put his card on my desk, told him he's rude & that it was disrespectful. LUCKILY for me, his little joke didn't go over so well... he didn't get the laughs he was looking for. but i would like to inform everyone of his mother's size. shes at least three of me, if i weight an ounce. she's a large marge lady. i don't see how in the world he gets the idea that i have a big butt. compared to his momma's, its minuscule. non existent. crappy little kid. *yes, i did laugh at it later... after it had blown over & the rest of my kids respected their teacher.
