Later on in the day, one of the little girls said, "Mr. H, when I first saw you I was freaked out." I smiled, "So, are you freaked out now?" She looked at me appraisingly and said, "No." I chuckled about it all day.
This morning, I walked into a third grade classroom to teach for the day. The kids came in and seemed happy to see me. One of them looked at me and asked, "Are you going to teach us all day?" I said, "Yes." He looked perplexed, "Then who's gonna be the music teacher???" I just started laughing! I texted the music teacher (the one I have subbed for a week at a time and a few days in between) this little nugget. She showed up a couple minutes later and wanted to know who the culprit was. I pointed him out. He had of course given himself a figurative slap on the forehead when I told him his regular teacher would be there. She chided him a little and promised to pick on him when he came to music today. Some days, the kids just make me laugh!
I took a few photos today. I intend to use these for my Transportation Coloring Book. I hope you all have an opinion on what should go in!
I always liked old trucks...
I also like big shovels.
