The Joys of Teaching

Today, we worked on a lesson that taught capacity. The students learned what a gallon, quart, pint and cup were. They learned how many of each could fill another through a great lesson with colored paper. After students completed a worksheet their homework was to go home and teach their parents about capacity. The parents were to fill out the same worksheet the students had to and then the student would act as the teacher and grade their work. The kiddos were SO excited about this, and wondered if their parents would be fooled. But, when Mrs. Feagan told the students that the worksheet their parents completed would be the one recorded in the grade book, one of the boys in the back pipped up and stated, "I'll be sure to give it to my Dad then." I was almost rolling with that one.
