Angry Eyes

While doing Phonics this morning, I was waiting for students to write their name on their paper and put their heads down to show me they were ready to begin. However, most of my students were cutting up and giggling. Some days I will say something and some days I just give them my "teacher look" and wait to see how long it takes for them to get the point, which is what I did today. You know the one...eyebrows raised and the stare like you are burning a hole into them. If you are a teacher or a've done "the look" Eventually one of my students saw my face and shouted out "Oh no...Mrs. McGinty has her angry eyes on...we better get quiet" I had to bite the side of my cheek to keep from laughing and look serious. I wonder how many times a day I put put my angry eyes on.
