How I told my low beginners

This year, I have a weird schedule where my 3rd period class goes to lunch and then comes back with 5 minutes left in class.  I usually wrap up what we’re doing before lunch because it’s worthless to try to teach anything for five minutes.  Often, we end up playing spider (which is the PC, non-violent version of Hangman that I learned last year, and much prefer).  Usually, I let the students run the game themselves.  But on Monday, I took over and this is what we ended up with:

After they finally guessed the sentence (it took forever), only one kid (out of 5) understood the significance of it.  And she was so excited, the rest of them were saying, “WHAT? WHAT?  WHAT DOES IT MEAN???!!!!”  So I told them “a baby”, pointed to my stomach, and then I got lots of big grins and hugs and congratulations!

    The Bible Study Ladies were so excited when I shared your news last Tuesday! They have been faithfully praying for fertility! I just couldn’t be happier for you and Nik, Laura. What a blessed babe you will have.
