1) In grade 3 we are talking about words ending in ‘ck’
Student: Teacher! Clock ends in ‘ck’
Teacher: Yes! It does! Go add it to our list.
Student writes the word on the board but forgets the ‘L.’ Somehow they didn’t remember another word that ends in ‘ck’ even though I know they know it.
2) It has taken my 6th grade students all year to figure out that most of the answers are in the back. Apparently they never noticed me reading the dialogs from the back of the book until last week. Since they have now picked up on this I changed an answer. I then had the Thai teacher tell them that I have the power to change the answers. Once they understood they started laughing and stopped checking the back of the book.
Score one for the teacher!
