* Things that leak

Ok, I am starting a list of things that leak.  Feel free to add your own.  I am not including body parts other than the brain.

  1. Complex instructions to kiddos spoken in the midst of asides and other students’ comments.
  2. Classroom lectures that last 30 minutes.
  3. Classroom lectures that last 20 minutes.
  4. Social skills instructions that are not practiced in real world situations.
  5. Tips for dealing with bullies that don’t include adult supervision and support.
  6. Phonics instruction presented by teachers who have no scope and sequence.
  7. Phonics instruction presented by teachers who never learned phonics skills.
  8. Ditto #6 and #7 for phonological instruction.
  9. My brain after less than 8 hours of sleep.
  10. My words after a strong cup of tea.
  11. Dishwashers.

Even this dehumidifier leaks- but into the sink, not the subfloor, like our dishwasher.
