[room 209m] week nine bday
October 20, 2016
One of my students turned seven this week. His mom is super generous and brought in pizza and juice for all the kids so he could have a special birthday lunch at school. She also told me that she was going to bring in balloons. In my normal brain, I imagined that meant she was going to bring in like 2 balloons for him. Instead, she brought in 10 balloons, 1 for each kid in the class! The question at the end of the day, though, was how each of these students was going to transport these ridiculously large helium-filled balloons home. Of course, I am an ingenious teacher and decided that the best idea was to double knot them all onto their backpacks. It was great! Plus, they look so cute in this ridiculous picture!
