I don't know which is the better story for my first week...
1. Wednesday, a baby mouse (which had been eating teachers' food) was caught, put in a gerbil cage, and effectively slipped through the bars to become the terror of the entire K-3 corridor,
2. Yesterday, one of my students went toilet in his pants (oops!),
3. Today, when the aforementioned student walked into the classroom before school and announced to the whole class, 'I'm going toilet now so that I don't go in my pants again!"
I commended him for his attitude and his good humor.
Now, I'm going home to sleep until Sunday...
