We were working on a map in class on Tuesday. Once the child was through with their foldable they were to come to me and get a map so they could label it. Just setting the story up for you....
Child: Do I have to do this?
Me: Yes you do. Its easy and you get to color it.
Child: But I don't know how to label it.
Me: I'll help you if you need me to. Go turn in the foldable please.
Child: She walks over and turns in her paper. What she doesn't know is that I'm watching her as she walks over and takes another child's map out of the tray from the previous class. I let her walk back to her desk and sit down before I mention that I caught her.
Me: So ----- did I just see you take another students paper?
Child: Ummmmm, yeah you did.
Me: Get your happy butt up and take their paper back to the tray now.
Kids in the class: Whoa ----- you just been burned by the teacher.
I wrote her up for what she did.Cheating is a crime with me.
