First day of a new quarter. Time seems to be flying by this school year yet at the same time standing still. Each day brings excitement and aggravation. Welcome to middle school! I love being a teacher especially with this age group. Poetry in song lyrics, figurative language makes more sense it seems for they appeared to be working hard at "reading" , finding and explaining the alliteration, metaphors, simile, onamonapeoia and so on then explaining what they thought the meaning behind was. Time seemed to stand still for a few moments this morning.
