That sounds upsetting. Can you fill me in on what's going on?
Alana and I used to be really good friends - we just had a sleepover - and now she won't talk to me.
I'm going to make a suggestion. It might help you focus to work with another partner going forward; that may be a better choice. And I think we should apologize to Alana about her eraser. She might be really upset too.
I'm sorry that that happened. That must be really hurtful and feel pretty bad. I think we don't know the full story.
" . . . Nice job on the individual reading you just did about Sukkot. Now turn to a partner and talk for 2 minutes about a time you were a guest in somebody's Sukkah and what you liked about it. Then we're going to have students share their experiences, those who want to."
It sounds like something that you two need to work out outside of class. Breaking a student's property, even if you feel frustrated, is not an acceptable solution, and neither is making a disruption when you have an activity to do.
Hi all. I'm going to turn the lights off for a minute we so can all take a deep breath and have a calming environment. (Some deep breaths . . . ) Please wrap up your conversations and get ready to share. Alana and Amalia, you can continue for now.
