Apparently this is going to become a movie. Hee hee. You know, why not? Here is this awesome girl racing down a hallway and falling just to prove a point. It could be a good movie! Here is the latest:
I’m glad they liked it. I was amazed that my teacher agreed to it – she really is a great person. It takes some real courage to try new things. She talked to me in the hall today- she’s gotten so many requests for more lessons like the one we did as well as new vocab so that our stories would be funnier. I have found some of these students and we told another story at lunch today about French pirates. We took up 3 tables. Older kids at different French levels joined too. I plan to continue these stories at lunch everyday. I would again like to congratulate my teacher again because she deserves all the credit for letting us do this. Cumulative test tomorrow.
[Of course, K, inquiring minds are going to want to know whether the boy who had never been told ‘good job’ in a school building shows up at the French table at lunch. Again, kudos to this teacher.]
[On another note, I had said in another blog here that Diana told me that it would be the principals who either demand alignment with the national and newly arriving state standards or let the book based approach continue, on a building level. Maybe I am wrong, maybe it could come from the kids. In America, the customer is always right!]

P.S. Can we treat this teacher to a free workshop somewhere?!!!!!!!!
Wouldn’t it be cool if this teacher were a “special guest” at the national TPRS conference?
