Lots of teachers at our school have small children who sometimes come up to the school, so I like to keep things in my classroom and on my desk in case they come in my room looking for some entertainment. That’s actually the reason I put the magnetic letters on the side of my desk! However, my students quickly found them and started rearranging the letters into messages. The messages started out easy- things like “Bonjour” or “French is Life.” Sometimes they write something that connects to what we’re learning, and those are my favorites. I especially love to walk into my room and notice a quote from The Phantom of the Opera or a great class inside joke like “boom shakala” (long story). Here’s a couple pictures of the messages my students left on the side of my desk. I always take pictures of them and post them on Instagram too (mmedcash).
