Mrs R was out of the classroom for the entire day and Mac’s response was to “NOT WORK”.
He wouldn’t spell ‘hat’, ‘at’, ‘go but was happy to spell ‘Easter’ and ‘supper’ (not his spelling words). He refused to do any of the ‘add two to the total’ sums in Maths.
He was hopeless and, yes, a little bit naughty.
His Aide asked him whether he thought he should be doing good work for the substitute teacher Ms M…. “NO” was Mac’s reply.
“Do you think you should only have to work for Mrs R?” she queried further….. “YES” was Mac’s reply.
OK, I love that he loves Mrs R, but I have suggested to him he probably needs to ‘get over himself’ just a little bit.
I am not sure he is totally convinced.
He is impossible to manipulate – one of those traits you love and hate simultaneously.
