So, here’s October’s round-up of things I overheard in 5E this past month.
(Name) was on fire! Yeah, she was!
[After looking at another student’s vocab strip that shows students use of weekly vocab words in speaking], I need to start saying the words.
I like using the computer more than writing stuff down.
I like when we have a choice [of assignment] because I’m always different.
I liked having a choice because personally I don’t like inspiration [mind-mapping program]. I prefer to write it down because I feel that’s easier for me.
Basically, the opposite of what (name) said.
If she [book character] was married to him [other book character], he’d be doing all the work.
If I did a glog [for a choice assignment], I’d do all the fanciness and never be done.
Sometimes I’m just in the mood for stuff on the computer.
[After some snarky comments about the fact that someone has to go to “dancing class”] He’s going to be a better dancer than you, and he’s gonna get all the girls.
People, forget about the sticky notes and focus on what we’re supposed to do.
It was all of us; we’re a team.
They looked like a group. [In response to watching a video clip of different groups working on a project.]
That’s leadership. [Again in response to watching another group on video]
That’s my star sentence.
We have a pretty good dialog, how about you?
He’s in the zone. [About a student on our simulated archaeological dig]
I can do minimum, maximum and range, but I always forget mode and median.
A lot of times I scan over the directions and miss something.
Oh, I’m actually getting this.
Oh this is awesome. I love my blog.
That definitely goes together. Who agrees? [During work reconstructing artifacts from our dig]
Ok, ok, (name) you and me can work over here at your desk. [to a student who is not always easy to work with]
(Name), do y ou need some help, buddy? Well I’m here for you.
Hey, I want a personal assistant. [after some students got personal assistants during math time]
Hey (name) if you hung around Ms. Eiteljorg more you would have really understood.
In the second paragraph, is it supposed to be just facts or can I infer too?
I love Blogger’s cafe!
Is the Blogger’s cafe open?
You have to follow the archaeology code of conduct.
Those are the October highlights. I could have put in many about the Blogger’s cafe. It’s a huge hit. (Read about it here.) What have you overheard lately?
