A lesson for the teacher
I was talking to my friend today about my blog and she loved the post about my German class and the hair color seating arrangement. I realized that it was a good lesson for me. Often things that are so obvious to the teacher are not so obvious to the students. My students went and entire month without seeing the pattern. Some classes never realized it until I pointed it out. Obviously if I had taught them to watch for pattens, or nudged them in that direction they would have realized it. It was a good learning moment for this teacher.
