Did I Miss Anything?

Mrs. Andrews was very irritated today about students missing class. Students are allowed nine absences a semester, but there are several students in Mrs. Andrews’ classes that have over eleven. When students come to Mrs. Andrews to see what they need to make up, they say things like, “Did we do anything?” Then, when Mrs. Andrews explains what they did in class (Mrs. Andrews does most things in class so there is not a lot of homework), students say, “Oh so, I didn’t miss anything?” This reminded me of one of my favorite poems that I read for an education class. If you haven’t read it, you need to!
