This year I have an interesting group of characters! There are a handful that stand out already; I foresee an abundance of episodes of Teacher Tales this year.
While working on an assignment that involved writing down their birthdays, I had to help a few who did not remember theirs. Most second graders know their birthdays. However, there are always one or two in every group that don't remember.
Mr. Show: Osvaldo, your birthday is May 8. (Writing it down for him to copy.)
Osvaldo: Again!? That's what my birthday was last year!
Mr. Show: Yep! May 8th has been your birthday every year since you were born, and it will be your birthday for the rest of your life.
Rodney: (Overhearing the conversation) WHAT?! You've GOT got to be kidding me!
Mr. Show: (Turns away with a huge grin on his face.)
