i actually wrote this funny thing down on a postit today so i would remember it later...today we were doing this grammar game as a class on the smart board, and the kids were writing either a,b,c,d on little white boards to show the answer, and they kept chanting what they said after they'd written it. i kept saying "no chanting! 4th graders, no chanting!"
then i realized--"no chanting"? really? part of my career is going to be saying things like "no chanting?" hands to yourself, i expect. but this was a new one. oh how i love this job... :-)
