Some snippets from today (it was a good Monday)Student rushing up to me as we're lining up for buses, "Mrs. Heise, I finished it."
Me: "Do you need to check out a new one before you leave?"
Student: "Mrs. Heise, what was that book you were reading last week?"
Student: "Mrs. Heise, this book is really good."
Friend: "Wait, which one? I want to read it, too."
Student to Friend: "You read Crash already?!" turns to me: "Mrs. Heise, Where is Bang? S needs it."
Me: "Okay. Get to a good stopping point."
Students (at various times):
"No! Can't we just keep reading all day?"
"Can't we read for just 10 more minutes so I can finish?"
"Can we just read the whole class today?"
"No! I only have four pages left!" (My response to that one? "OK. Everyone read a few more pages so B can finish."
