5 Better Ways to Say ‘I Don’t Know’ in the Classroom

Do you allow students to answer a question with the response “I don’t know” in the classroom? Perhaps you should consider no longer allowing that phrase and instead offering up these five other ways that might get students thinking a bit more.


This is great!

I mean, I usually ride my dragon to work, doesn’t every librarian?

We prefer griffons in Pickerington, but dragons are good, too.

As an actual dragon librarian, I am confused by this statement.

(via loisthelibrarian)

There are times Winston looks almost like a luck dragon. That is as close as I get.

My mom teaches Kindergarten and I went to her classroom a few days ago and saw what appeared to be a small shrine dedicated to Jodie Foster in the corner of the room and I had literally no idea why it was there, so I asked my mom about it and she said it’s where the kids can go to tattle on each other so they don’t always do it to her

So basically my mom tells her little Kindergarteners to tell on each other to a magazine clipping of Jodie Foster that they call Miss Tattle and if you don’t think that’s the funniest thing then get out of my face

OMG, I can’t.

 Oh man yeah this is a super common thing, we have one of these in my preschool room, too, except ours is a picture of Obama. When the kids are upset or angry or want to tattle or whatever they “Go tell the President” and its my favorite thing.

GO TELL THE PRESIDENT

Get To Know Your Tumblarians Tuesday: Life lessons learned in the library?

lecieltumultueux:

What have you learned during your time in the library that you always carry with you?

One lesson that I try to live by: ALWAYS be nice to maintenance/cleaning staff

To never comment on how open my / my co-worker’s calendars are. It always results in the busiest days ever. 

Teens are people too.
