I feel like all my guided math blogs are making this seem to Pinterest perfect. Trust me, it’s not. It is still a hot mess all the time.
One of my kiddos was absent most of the week. She checked out on Monday before lunch and was back today. This short absence has made her forget everything she knows about being in school or acting like a civilized human.
Our day began with her yelling “chicken” randomly throughout the entire day. Why? I don’t know. When I would call on her to answer a question, chicken was her response. If she had her hand raised I would say, “If you are going to say chicken, I’m not calling on you.” She would tell me she had an actual question. She would ask her question and then yell Chicken. That only happened once. I picked up on this pretty quick.
She also decided she couldn’t walk anymore. She would crawl, jump, run, skip, kick her legs real high, or do anything else to avoid walking anywhere. We had walking practice today and she practiced walking nicely for about twenty minutes.
She also decided to “fall” down all day long. If she was standing perfectly still, she would collapse to the floor and inform me that she just fell down. That happens sometimes (it doesn’t). She also fell out of her chair frequently.
Thank goodness it was a short day. I don’t think I would survive an entire day like this. This means she has a three day weekend to forget how to act like a human. Monday will be hard. Wish me luck!
