Have you listened to the language of our children lately.
I need a text message dictionary to decipher the code of my newest more hip students. (Do you say hip still or is the word preppy?)
In my classroom I hand out instructions...
Jose kindly says, "TY"
I say, "these are the instructions on the project we will begin as soon as possible."
"Yes," I answer.
Hands to his surprised face, "OMG."
This dialog continues but is interrupted by the bell ringing.
As class ended he walks out the door calling back to me, "TTYL. SPST."
Just a slight jump from the generation that started it all with DVDs, VCRs, Wii, PS, PCs, HD, IPods, ADHD, OC, AR, ....................................
YRYOCC :-) SICNR
(TTYL=Talk to you later
SPST=Same place, same time
SIG2R=Sorry, I got to run
SUL= See you later
YRYOCC=You're running your own cuckoo clock!
SICNR=Sorry, I could not resist!)
What a vocabulary!!!!
I hope they do well on their TAKS, SATs and ACTs!
