I’ll Get You, My Pretty

Word #8 on our spelling pre-test today was autumnal – you know, one of those words that is likely to frequently come up in a seventh grader’s conversation. I pronounced the word and then used it in a couple of sentences: Football is an autumnal sport. Thanksgiving and Halloween are autumnal holidays.

Paolo, a wannabe gang kid and one of the few people in his family who speaks English, raised his hand.

“Yes, Paolo?” I asked.

“Can I take you and put you on my front porch to scare people on Halloween?” he asked.

Oh, hon, if you think I’m scary now, just wait until finals… 😉

The Bee’s Knees

This is the teaching journal of a student first-year second-year THIRD-YEAR (!!!) English teacher. I am writing this blog as a reflection for myself, a way to keep friends and family updated, and a sharing-ground between other educators online. I love comments!

I am striving to maintain anonymity on this blog so that I may more freely interact with my fellow edubloggers. If you know who I am, please help me protect my anonymity in your comments. I use pseudonyms or initials for everyone I write about to preserve their anonymity as well.
