"I would rather pole dance than work with a partner!"
Um, yeah; it was a little awkward.
Hours later, when Jimmy and I were processing his day, he hung his head and admitted that his behavior was out-of-line. I asked, "How in the world do you know anything about pole dancing? You're eleven!"
"Mrs.4444, what is pole dancing?"
Just another day in the classroom....
And no, I did not explain pole dancing to Jimmy; I told him to go home and ask his mom. (And then I called her to give her a heads-up.)
Here's hoping that your work with partners today is tolerable :)
Have a Happy Monday!
