They Make Me Laugh

The last day of regular classes for this semester was held today. One of my students brought Scotch-O-Roo's for the class. ("They have chocolate on them Mrs. T, you will like them"). Which is true. I actually adore Scotch-O-Roo's.

One of the student received two, since there were extras. He decided to eat one right away(which he attempted to shove in his mouth whole) and save the other one for later. Everyone was supposed to be working on a exam review sheet, but this student was very distracted today and was not really doing what he should have been. This of course distracts others as well, so I finally said, "If you don't work on your review, I am going to take you Scotch-O-Roo away." That propmted him to get right to work away.

For about three minutes. Then he started right back up again. He was turned around talking to someone behind him, so I stealthfully went up to his desk to get his bar. He turned around just as I got there and said , " No, don't take my bar," and then proceeded to watch me take it off his desk. He totally could have beat me to it if he would have tried, but instead he just watched me take it.

I then hid it from him for the rest of class and all was well in the English room.

Did you eat it? I would!
I used to tell my students that if they played with toys during class time I would take them away and save them for my own kids some day. They were horrified and didn't believe me, I said, "Why would I buy toys if I can get them for free?". Our cat still plays with a Mario ball that I confiscated.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
