Today I was allowing them to watch a movie, so as I was getting it ready I heard some whispering and snickering behind me. It doesn't bother me when my students talk if I'm just getting ready for the next activity, unless they completely get out of hand. So I didn't think anything of it. Then my little Russian friend (Aziza) tells me to turn around and I see this lying on the floor in front of me:
It looked like a big fuzzy rat. I made an "ugh!" sound which of course made the class laugh, and then they asked Aziza why she has it. This is a phonic transcription:
"Ven I vas talkink vith my grrrendmahther she esk me vhat I vant for my berrrthday and I telled hkher I vant the hkhair clip but she thinked I said HKHAIRY clip."
I was dying.
