Thank you so much for your effort. This week, I asked the students to correct their quiz on directions and most of them handed back to me within minutes.
第一件事是上個星期有一位小朋友跟我們的TA吵架。 第二件事是這個星期有一位小朋友拉了警鈴。 這兩件事都是下課時發生的，學校也有被告知。
You might have heard from your kids that a couple of incidents happened in our classroom in the last two weeks. The first incident was that one of the students got into a quarrel with our TA. The second incident happened today when someone pulled the fire alarm in the classroom. Both incidents happened during recess and the school was informed.
只要我們住在一個社會裡, 大家一定會有不同的想法和意見，我們也會有不如意的日子。 在這種情況下，我們如何自持是很重要的。 我們不能用拳頭解決問題。
I was not there to witness the first incident . What I told the class is that as long as we live in a society, there are always going to be disagreement. We will all have bad days. How we handle ourselves is most important. We don’t use our fists to solve problems.
我們花了一些時間在班上討論這為什麼是不對的行為。很幸運的是， 警鈴後來自己停了。我們失去了下課休息時間。 我們也打擾的隔壁班。
The second incident was one of our boys pulled the fire alarm. I have a good discussion with the classroom why no one should touch it unless it’s a real emergency. The class lost a recess and we also disturbed the other 3rd grade class, but luckily, the alarm stopped by itself and did not go further.
小朋友已經在一起二十週了，有些同學變成好朋友。 這是我們很樂見的。大家熟了以後難免會比較勇於表達自己的意見。 有時候會吵架，上課也比較難專心。 我們還是要試著以正面的態度來上課。 我們的小朋友還是一級棒的喔!
These two incidents are unfortunate. I treated them as good opportunities for all of us to learn life lesson. Now our students became friends with each other, sometimes it’s hard to concentrate in the class. Sometimes they get each other in trouble. I think it’s norm for the class to become more expressive toward the end of the term. Let’s try to keep the positive energy flowing! Your kids are wonderful.
