Well, we're back to school after a holiday break and basically a week off of school for snow/MLK day. Today, we were reading the newspaper in class. When the students were finished reading, they were to write a review of an article and then fold their papers back up. I had one student that didn't exactly jump on the whole fold your newspaper back up bandwagon. This is what happened:
Mr. H: Ok 7th grader, fold your newspaper up.
7th Grader: I can't...I'm claustrophobic.
Mr. H: What does that have to do with folding your paper?
7th Grader: Oh, I mean I've got arthritis.
