...part of me pre-judges a child's ability to follow directions based on their parent's ability to follow the school supply list? We had open house tonight, and I was going through my students' desks after they left to make sure they brought all of their supplies. It is always interesting to see the supplies that parents send. :lol: Edit: Because so many people are getting upset, thinking that I am actually judging, please realize that this thread is more of a joke. (Hence the :lol: .) I do not actually sit and judge families based on the school supplies they bring me. Read my response below for more.
