And They Say Students Don’t Learn Division at SVS…

SophieI love chocolate and eat a piece after lunch and dinner. Pretty much religiously.  In the beginning of the year, I used to pack a few pieces to last me the week. Well, Dillon, Elise and Sophie quickly realized I did. They are so charming and cute I can’t say no to them…even if it’s my last piece. When it is, I tell them and ask; “what are you going to do with one piece between the three of you?” Boy- do they figure it out fast! They each take a little bite. Or break it with their fingers. Or, believe it or not, use a plastic fork and knife (this wasn’t the best option…and made a mess). DillonOr one person popping it in their mouth and look at the other two with wide eyes…then spitting it out and giving it to the next person (this option was gross and I told them…they didn’t care). It’s fun to watch them figure out how to evenly divide something so small. Then watch them pick up the mess and throw out the trash…with a little coaxing. It’s even funny when they quickly ditch me because I don’t have any use for them without chocolate!
