Cat Woman

Mike was so disappointed in my "Catwoman" costume.

Again, with another group of first graders today, the therapy probes were not going well.  We were practicing "social smarts" - thinking about what the group is learning and staying on topic.

Out of the blue, one of the students said, "Look at my bandaid!  Here, let me show you what's underneath - it's from a skito.  A TEN POUND skito!  A TEN POUND GERMAN skito.  It just bitted me and now I have this mark.  Have you gotted a bite by a ten pound German skito?"

Student two replied, "Look at my bandaid!  Let me show you my ringworm.  See?  It gotted two creams and one bandaid.  Wanna touch it?"

Me:  "NOOOO!"

The session wrapped up so we could all go to the bathroom to wash our hands.


I was working with a group of first graders on proper question formulation.  It was not going well.  I kept giving them example after example of proper question formulation.  They kept answering my questions instead of imitating the proper grammar.  My favorite exchange:

Me:  "Who likes Halloween candy?"
Student:  "Mexicans!  My dad likes candy."
Me:  "Is your dad Mexican?"
Student:  "No, he drives a truck."

Quinn has eaten his lunch in the parking lot of the high school a couple of days now.  He just sat in the truck and ate.  I was worried that there was a problem or that he was being teased or bullied.  Angrily, he responded, "It's open campus, Mom!  It's a free country!  I want to try new things!  Is there a law that says I can't sit in the truck and eat my lunch?!"

I still think there might be something else going on, but he seemed pretty confident.  I'll keep you posted.

Could It Be?

I've heard that you shouldn't eat sushi from a truck stop.  Duh.

Mr. Rellim is wondering if the ham salad sandwiches from the gas station could be causing his gastrointestinal upset this evening.

Does anyone know how to email a Power Point presentation?  Please help!

The Rumble

It's what I'll be doing on Saturday night.  And it's why Al Gore invented the internet.  You should really check it out.  Should be a good time!
