SOL#21 – “Is this for a grade?”

“Is this for a grade?”


“Are you just telling me that so I try my best?”


A smirk.  A nod.  And off to work he goes….

Oh, the “conversations” with fifth grade boys…

  1. Ugh, if I had a nickel for each time I heard that question, I’d have enough to buy a 12 pack of Diet Coke! But the smirk….that’s what we’ll always remember, isn’t it? 🙂

  2. I have a couple of 5th grade boys who will ask the same thing then ask “What if I don’t do it because I know you’re not taking a grade?” All it takes is one raised eyebrow and they get to work muttering about how they don’t want to risk it. But what is it about the smirk?!
