As teachers we hear it all...
"My mom didn't put it in my back pack!"
"You didn't give me homework!"
"My little brother colored all over it!"
and of course...
"My dog ate it!"
I had never actually heard the one about the dog, but yesterday, my teacher life changed forever... and for the better I might add!
One of my students made my day when he handed me this:
I literally laughed out loud.
Yes, that is a baggie with the shreds of homework. The evidence.
But, at least he was responsible and brought back his homework! And I just love that his mom sent in the evidence with the note!
What is the best I-forgot-my-homework-excuse that you have heard?
