About two weeks before the end of school, I took my sophomores on a "mini" field trip/lab.
We started out by eating lunch together at Culvers, as you can see it was a very popular choice!
Around the table from left to right are Brandon, Jessica, Seth, Baili, Audrey, Rebekah, and Zach.
After lunch we spent time at Meijer's where, clip boards in hand, they searched food labels for examples of the organic compounds and minerals we'd been studying in class.
I told these girls they looked like "Charlie's Angels."
Seth chillin' as he waits for the others to get finished.
The next day, this is how they THANKED me.
Oh how great it is when student love is expressed so freely!!
I drove around town sporting their calligraphy for days until the rain removed it.
You may or may not remember the significance of the "ditching" epitaph. If you are curious, you can read about it here.and here.
On the last day of school, this was delivered to me.
On the back, another reference to their abandonment issues.
Thank you, Jessie!
And now, to close this last of my many Sophomore posts, here are a few examples of the wittiness with which they regaled me about my age on a daily basis in class:
Brandon: It's hard to picture you as anything young..
Baili: Compared to you, Mrs. Broyles, he's a little kid!!!
Brandon: Are you kidding me??? Compared to HER Abe Lincoln is a little kid!!!!
Seth: Everyone's time comes sometime.
Brandon: And you've had a REALLY LONG time, Mrs. B.
Mrs. B: I'm in Mackinley's Hall of Fame
Baili: For living the longest!
