Happy Fall Everyone!
That’s right! Tomorrow is the first day of Fall. I am very happy with the dedication the students have been demonstrating in class regarding their work. I have had some issues in class regarding mechanical pencils and pens though. There is an activity going around that some of the kids have learned on YouTube where they take the pens and mechanical pencils apart and rearrange the springs to create automatic shooters. This is a very inappropriate and dangerous use of their tools for learning, and I have informed them at this point that I never want to see them again. I have decided as a result that I do not want mechanical pencils or pens in the classroom anymore. This may be upsetting to some of the students as they really like those tools, but after three weeks of school with no change in actions I feel it is necessary.
