Grounded Behavior

, , , , | Learning | December 22, 2017

(We have free seating at my school, but my classroom is getting crowded and noisy, so I tell students they can only be in my room if they are working in my subject matter. One of my more impish young men is talking and bouncing all over the place, so I tell him he needs to sit with his Physical Science teacher. Five minutes later, he is at my classroom door.)

Student: “Mrs. [My Name], I’m coming in!”

Me: “Oh? On what grounds?”

Student: *pauses, then points triumphantly to the floor* “These grounds right HERE!”

(I laughed so hard, I had to let him stay.)
