Lice, Lice, RabiesĀ 

As the lice begins to clear up on the head of one student, the calls of, “don’t touch that! You might get rabies!” have begun…

While the two episodes are seperate occurrences, the animal issues in our classroom seem ever expanding. Discussion of how you get rabies began and was only derailed by my stepping in to explain you could not get rabies from the bird feather one student had smuggled in from the playground. I had to calm the fears of several students by explaining how you get rabies (a topic I know very little about by the way). Now, I am smart enough to know that the rabies discussion will not end there.  

I am absolutely looking forward to the reports each of my students will write as they decide not to stop disrupting class with rabies talk.
