Friday in an Algebra I class. Of course they had a quiz. Which was largely uneventful. (This is a very good thing.)
5th period there were three boys who could not sit still. It was a good thing most of the class finished quickly, for I don't think they would have been able to hold it in much longer. When released from the silence, the boys got into a strange conversation.
The only part I heard:
"Which is the warmest ocean?"
"The Pacific? No, the Indian? I don't know."
At which point I chimed in with something about how the boy would learn that in his geography class.
"I'm in the 10th grade."
Freshmen take geography. I assumed he was a freshman. In my defense, he looked young.
At which point I asked about his geography class the previous year. He told me who his teacher had been, and I understood.
I really must check the roll sheet before assuming what grade students are in.
