So Severe Life

I have two new books to recommend... "The One Minute Father" and the classic "All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten".

I plan to adapt some of the concepts in "The One Minute Father" for use in the classroom.
[1]The One Minute Reprimand
[2]The One Minute Praising
[3]The One Minute Goals

I also found some funny notebooks...

Notebook text reads...
Go straight now
Go your way without hesitation, my kids.
There is so severe but fruitful life in front of you.

Notebook text reads...
I'll say my name to you this morning, certainly.
I know that I'm too young to be in love, but I know that I like you much.

생일 축하 합니다♪

Some of my students had a "surprise" party for me. They made me put a jacket over my head and guided me into a dark room. Then... surprise!!! A lovely cake with candles. I made a wish and blew out the candles. It was great.

Missy also brought marshmallows. The girls immediately re-lit the candles, jammed the marshmallows onto chopsticks, and started roasting them on the candle flames. Except... roasting is applied loosely here... mostly they just lit them on fire like little girls in most countries. And then at some point they decided to smear cake on my face. Good times.

I love these little ladies. I hope my sister grows up to be as cool as them.
