There are days when I get to teach and do some awesome stuff. Today, 7th period was one of those awesome times. Awesome.
If you would please…. take a moment and think of the detailed steps necessary to make a peanut butter & jelly sammich.Okay, did you do it? Did you remember to tell me to open the bag of bread? Open the pb jar? What about spreading the yums- did you tell me to use a knife??
This was the task my kiddos faced today. Of course, I didn’t tell them that I brought the supplies to make the sammich. I cannot tell you the satisfaction I had when they told me to put peanut butter on the bread.
I looked up at them. Then smashed the bread into the jar of peanut butter and grinned internally as I heard exclaims of, “MISSS!!! Use the knife!” I reminded them that they didn’t tell me to use the knife. (heeheehee)
The other key factor that they tended to miss was to detail that the slices of bread should have the pb and j facing each other when the sammich is put together. Because each time I made the snack, I was able to put the sammich together with the peanut butter facing out. And internally, I just giggled and giggled.
In truth, if you’ve never had the satisfaction of smooshing bread into a jar of peanut butter and innocently inverting a pb&j sammich for a know-it-all GT class…well, you’ve never really lived
