THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION
We all have them. Those one, two, or even three students that always work in slo-o-o-o-o-o-ow motion. You find yourself constantly saying, "Hurry up and finish your work! You don't want to miss recess. Hurry up and finish your work! We need to go to the library in 5 minutes. Hurry up and finish your work! It's almost lunch time. Hurry up and finish your work! We're going home in 10 minutes. Please try to finish your work. WHY CAN'T YOU FINISH ON TIME LIKE EVERYONE ELSE?"
After all of that and they still don't finish in a timely fashion. "Argh." Well, I finally found out why they don't finish their work on time. This is what my first grade student told me after the last "Hurry up and finish your work it's almost time for recess."
He said, "Don't rush me. I'm doing a professional job!"
(And so he did. He finished it during his recess!)
