This is actually for school. Originally, I ordered this book because I had third period planning, and that means fourth period my students would go to lunch after the first half of class. Then, they return for the remaining half after lunch. Kids are rowdy after lunch, and I thought reading to them for about five minutes would calm them down a bit. My reading professor in college did this when we would come back from our breaks, and he actually read this book. I just LOVED it! Have you guys ever read it?? It's really good:)
"When orphan Sophie is snatched from her bed by a Giant, she fears that he's going to eat her. But although he carries her far away to a Giant Country, the Giant has no intention of harming her. As he explains, in his unique way of talking, 'I is the only nice and jumbly Giant in Giant Country! I IS THE BIG FRIENDLY GIANT! I IS THE BFG!' The BFG tells Sophie how he mixes up dreams to blow through a trumpet into the ears of children. But soon, all the BFG's powers are put to the test as he and Sophie battle to stop the other Giants from tucking into children of the world. The RAF and even the Queen become involved in the mission." (taken directly from Roald Dahl's website)
So, as I'm learning, sometimes, actually things change ALL the time during the first week. Like I said, I was supposed to have third period planning; so, the other day, I was seriously about to walk out of my room during third. However, students kept coming in my room and sitting down. I was like eh, what are you doing in here? They were like duh we're in English class. I'm like uh no, I'm on planning. One kid was like nuh uh, it says it right here [picture student waving schedule in the air, pointing to my name in the third period box] that you teach me third period. I was like what the heck....call the office, and sure enough, my schedule had been changed. I, now, have fourth period planning, and hey, that is PERFECTLY alright with me. So, I break from 11:00-12:40 which also includes my lunch. I have 10ish extra minutes than I'd normally have, and I've been hiding out. I don't want lunch/cafeteria duty. Haha:)
Don't forget about my Jonathan Adler agenda giveaway....it ends tonight!!!
