Third day of school funny

I teach middle school and have one difficult boy who has been having a little trouble getting into the classroom routines. He has been the usual rowdy boy that we sometimes meet that first week of school until they get used to the "what-what" of your classroom. He has been the constant interrupter (please raise your hand),the slow to start worker (everyone should be busy right now) and the noise making tapper (please come get your reflection sheet- that is not allowed in here).

I was walking around checking on everyone and once again he was sitting doing nothing. I reminded him, "In this classroom right now all pencils are moving or your hand is in the air with the question." He replied really loud for everyone to hear, "You are a witch!" This grumble was all for the laugh he thought he would get from the class. I turned and said, " Please get that pencil moving. I will be flying back here on my broom in about 5 minutes and I better see some work on that paper!" We all had a laugh including him.

It was just one of those funny moments that you have to share!

So funny - when you flew back around did he have some work done? Thanks for sharing.

Cute way to relate

I'll bet you caught him off guard with your quick wit. I need to remember that for my certain difficult one. My goal is to keep them moving along (whatever it takes) and stay on track. A little humor goes a long way!

I love your response! That's something I would have thought of at 2:30 am that night...
