My teacher always says....

Ha, ha, one of my favorite bloggers is having her first linky party and it's called -
 Really - I'm not the only one that has a repeat button???

1 - "I want a million bucks, but I don't see the bank truck coming to the door." This is after one of my sweeties tells me "I want..."  and that want is something that I just can't give, for whatever reason. At the end of the year, some of my smarter sweeties started telling me that Yes, they did see a bank truck at the door. Ha - don't we all wish!

2 - "Tell them, 'I don't like it when you....'" Is it rude to say - this is an easy way to stem some interpersonal problems? For me, it takes me out of the loop or middle of the situation, and my friend that feels hurt gets a chance to tell their classmate why. Of course, if this doesn't help, I step in. But usually this is enough to take care of the situation.

3 - "Don't say 'I don't get it,' say 'I don't get it YET.' This is usually for math. I just hate it when my little friends say "I don't get it." So I made them quit saying that. By the end of the year, some of them were saying this on their own when they were asking a question.

That's all I can think of right off the bat. Probably as soon as I publish, I'll think of a bunch more. 

And ooh, on me - I'm trying to add a signature - I got the idea and steps from Mrs. Stanford - but I'm afraid I'm going to have to play with it a little - it's pretty tiny right now. 

If you some special things you always say, share them at Forever in First



  1. Sara, you've totally made my day. One of my blogging friends actually linked up! I can breathe now. I should really start using #2 more often. They need some help figuring out how to talk to each other without sounding like drama queens and kings. Thanks again for joining me!
