Today has been a day full of parallel and perpendicular lines, a student council meeting at lunch, practice ACT questions, after school math tutoring, and lots of crazy conversations. Enjoy.
Student: "Can I go to talk to the principal?"
Student: "Why not?"
Me: "He's not here today."
Student: "Why? Where's he at?"
Me: "He's at a workshop."
Another student: "Is he at Santa's workshop?"
"How can vegetarians eat sandwiches?"
Student: "Do you want to look at this?" (This student has just handed me a blue folder that is completely full of his math assignments from last year.)
Student: "So, what do you think? Can I get some extra points for it?"
Student: "I was hoping that you would give me thirty extra points for it."
Me: "This is from last year. It's not for this class. I'm sorry, but I can't give you any extra credit for having last year's assignments."
Student: "I was hoping that if I kept it that I would get some extra points for it. That's okay. I'll take it to [the other math teacher.] He'll give me some extra points for it."
Me: "But, he's not your teacher. How will he give you extra points?"
Student: "That doesn't matter. He can still give me extra points."
"Guys, it's three days until Hanukkah. I know this because I asked for a dreidl for Christmas."
"Wouldn't it be convenient if deer always crossed at the deer crossing signs?" (Said after my students had watched this video earlier in the day.)
