Miss Youngman,

You wrote my name down on the note for being disrespectful and not paying attention in class. I shouldn’t have been disrespectful in class.

I was disrespectful to you in class and throwing erasers. I should have been respectful to you because you probably won’t want to come back to our school now because kids were making smart comments.

I also should have been playing attention in class because if you don’t, you won’t learn anything. If I don’t learn anything in class, I won’t pass it. I was throwing erasers in class instead of doing my work.

I was causing more problems for you because kids weren’t paying attention and doing their work. And if they aren’t doing their work, you have to yell at them. I threw an eraser at a kid and he picked it up and threw it back and you caught me.

You might argue that I should have been doing my work but everyone has to have fun once in a while. Somebody our age can’t just sit in a chair all hour and do work.

Your friend,

  1. This speaks volumes. Kids gotta play! We all have to play, and move, and THAT is, in large part, how we learn! What a great note.
