I Can’t Get Through ONE Friggin’ Lesson.



As most of you know, I teach special education, and a good number of my students have difficulty with one or more areas of learning.  My language arts period is for students with learning disabilities in reading, and uses a variety of drills to help kids learn to break words down and decode them more easily.  This is one of the easier ones, but, as usual, I can’t get through ANYTHING without D’Avonte making it interesting.  They were supposed to be adding suffixes to words…

Me: “Add a suffix to happy.”

Class: “Happiness!”

Me: “Add a suffix to beauty.”

Class: “Beautiful!”

Me: “Add a suffix to self.”

D’Avonte: “SYPHILIS!”
