Students, tell us your most memorable moments from 2010. What does 2010 represent for you?
Are there any words and phrases that you heard too much of in 2010? They might be buzz words, catchphrases from television, advertising, movies or songs, or they just might be “filler” words that people dropped into conversation too often. Are there any that will keep going strong in 2011? (idea courtesy of The New York Times Learning Network)
Have any of you made New Year’s resolutions?
Live and Learn and Pass It On
Do any of you have any life lessons that you have learned and would like to pass on? A life lesson is an experience that you have learned from and want to share with others.
For example…..I learned that if your puppy has a baby bunny in its mouth, it does you no good to chase it around the yard with a shovel…..it will eat it anyway! (I know, ewwww!)
I have also learned that talking on the phone while following a recipe leads to disastrous results.
And I have also learned that while I strive to be the best teacher for my students, they give back to me in immeasurable ways.
While the mayhem ensued at Shea Stadium, I was sitting on the roof of my aunt’s house with a bunch of friends listening to the concert…..and having a great time! Can you imagine singing without ear plugs (back then) in that noise level? The music revolution begins…..
