My Students Make Me Laugh

So the other day in class my lower level kids were drawing Christmas pictures and coloring them when I noticed a new name on one of them. I walked up to her and asked if I had misspelled her name the whole time, knowing I hadn’t. She started laughing and grabbed her eraser. Her name is Jenny but she had spelled it Jeeny on her paper. We both got a laugh out of it. I don’t think they use their English name all that often so I won’t give her too much slack. I just thought it was pretty funny.

    They really only use them in my class. Otherwise I would just be saying "hey you" a lot since I can't pronounce their Korean names.
