Welcome to Friday Fragments, where a grade of "Incomplete" feels perfectly wonderful.
Collect the random bits and pieces of your week that never made it into posts of their own
and share them in a post that feels like an accomplishment :)
***My weekend is going to be super-full! Concert Thursday. "Friday Fun Night" at the middle school, a trip to Minneapolis Saturday. With any luck, Sunday will truly be a day of rest.
***Speaking of Minneapolis, Kendall has been accepted for admission to her first-pick college, the University of Minnesota at Twin Cities! They've invited her to a Women in Science and Technology thingy, and that's where we're going on Saturday. So exciting!
***Uncle Ray's potato chip bags have some charming stories printed on the back of them. Last week, I bought my first bag and enjoyed reading about a lesson Ray had learned as a boy. One of the themes he learned from that particular experience resonated with me as a message I wish my students would learn: Wanting something does not mean you're entitled to it.
***A tweet I posted on Wednesday:
Just enlightened a six grade science student about the fact that she does not pee AND poop from her anus. (I don't get paid enough.)
If that left you a little speechless, imagine how I felt when I explained simply that the anus "keeps your poop from falling out of your body," and she chirped, "And your pee, too!" Gotta love the Human Body unit...
***Speaking of school, today, a student trying to think of the year her grandma was born said, "1964" and I called her out, pointing out that I was born in 1963 and in no way could be old enough to be the grandma of a 12-year-old. Guess what? Her grandma is 49. Wow. (Yes, I regretfully apologized.)
That's it for me! Here's the Linky for your Friday Fragmenting pleasure:
