Sense and Sensibility

A short post, as I am drowning in schoolwork...this is the first week back at school, and today was the first day that I had my new homeroom of 3rd graders. I love them. Truly. I was doing orientation with them for the 1st two periods today, and was at the point of discussing expectations for behavior. I asked if anyone could tell me how they are to behave in class, and one of my prize students raised his hand and earnestly said, "We should behave sensibly."

Well, I nearly melted right then and there. His teacher from 2nd grade is one of my British colleagues, and when I heard him say that, I just knew he had picked it up from her.

A couple of my little girls have started calling me Mrs. Mulan. Got to nip that one in the bud.

Ok, back to work.

I'll tell Anika to behave sensibly the next time she has a meltdown. Do you think it will work?
