Back-From-Thanksgiving Blues

By Bryan Toporek — December 02, 2009 1 min read

Mister Teacher dreads returning to school after Thanksgiving, as he skeptically expects his students to have completely neglected their homework assignment from the break. Sound familiar?

I sent these flip books home with the kids over break and told them that their homework was to cut out pictures from newspapers, magazines, store fliers, whatever that showed examples of 3-D shapes in real life. They were to glue these pictures inside their flip books and then bring them back for display.
It will be very interesting to see how many flip books I get back tomorrow. I have to say, I'm really not expecting much. A lot of my kids have trouble bringing back homework or signed papers from the night before, much less from 10 days before, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if I only get about half of them back...
