Walk in the room and the desks are different. Still in rows but pushed back against the wall. Something tells me it’s going to be different today. I hope it’s not a stupid activity. I really hope that I don’t have to get up, speak, or interact with anyone. This class is always the same thing. Boring stories that I never want to read or understand why we read them. The teacher gets upset because these stupid boys don’t know how to shut up and ruin it for everyone. She just yells at everyone. I wish she’d make this a fun class like my science teacher.
Walk in the room and the desks are different. Sweet. I beat everyone else to the comfy chair in the corner. It’s way more comfortable than the desks. I hope she let’s me sit here today. Haha. Here comes Joey. Hey! Look away and act nonchalant. Trip him as he walks bye. – Steven! Stop bothering Joey. – Miss! It was him. I was just sitting here minding my own business. – Hey! Stop lying Steven. It was you. She saw it! – Sheesh, Joey. Knock it off, I’m trying to work. I look sheepishly at my book, pretending to read once again. I’m never going to finish this book like she wants me to. Thunk. I look up and see that Joey took off the eraser from his pencil and launched it at me. -Miss! Joey threw his eraser at me! That’s a detention! -Will you guys knock it off!
Walk in the room and the desks are different. This day is going to be different, better. I found this fun activity that will get them up and out of their desks and working together. I hope they enjoy it. I really need to try to do more activities with them. Do I have everything printed and ready? Will two groups be enough? Should I make them reflect? Write a response? Or just let them enjoy it and discuss it Monday? I guess we’ll just wing it and see how it goes. TGIF!
Can you label the different perspectives?
