Sadie Says

Sadie was telling me recently that her 2nd grade teacher never asks her to read her journal responses to the class. Some of her friends have been able to share a couple of times now and Sadie doesn't know how to get a turn. On top of that, apparently her teacher doesn't call on her to answer questions when they have circle time on the floor. I can tell she's frustrated by this because she really wants to participate, but I couldn't help but laugh at her attempt to get noticed. It went something like this...

"My teacher said that she's going to call on kids who are just looking around the room or who aren't paying attention. I keep looking all around the room when she is talking but she still doesn't call on me!" 

Hmmm, it seems to me that her teacher's good intentions may have backfired. :) When getting called on is a reward (to Sadie), she'll even misbehave to get it. 

This girl cracks me up!
