Third graders LOVE to talk.
Most of my students undertand when it's appropriate to talk with their neighbor.
One of my little darlings does not. He would talk to a brick wall. Seriously.
Me: Luke, will you PLEASE read your book instead of talking?
Luke: Good point, Miss Henderson, good point.
I don't know what kind of "point" I made but he was quiet for the rest of the afternoon. Praise the Lord.
