Reflection: Joy Unbelievable!: Even More Non-Literal Language with Idioms - Section 3: Label New Learning


The students in my classroom love when I talk about "Mr. Hesemann"!  It's so funny!  They constantly ask me when Mr. Hesemann will come in to visit us, and I love sharing stories with them because they just eat them up for some reason!  Today, as I share the story where I asked Mr. Hesemann to "keep his shirt on", the students are all giggling!  It's so fun to see the joy students have as we learn together and allow each other to be a little silly sometimes!  Learning about idioms has really been a topic my students have enjoyed and gotten a kick out of!
