Cover Image        Here's the vocabulary for Just Grace.

 

1. Explain how Grace came to be known as 'Just Grace'.  How do you think the teacher handled the situation? If you were the teacher, would you have done things differently?

 

Mrs. Castañeda's GROUP 1

Bryan said...- Grace got her name because there were 4 Graces in her classroom.

Bryan and Giovanny said...- Grace's  teacher changed her name to 'Just Grace' because she was confused about Grace wanting to be called just Grace.

Jaclyn said...- Yes, the teacher handled the situation well because now she knows who is who.

Bryan and Giovanny said...- No, the teacher did not  handle the situation well because it was unfair and Just Grace's feelings got hurt.

Jaclyn said...- If I were the teacher, I would give Just Grace an initial, too (e.g. Grace S.).

Giovanny...- If I were the teacher, I would name them with numbers like Grace 1, Grace 2, Grace 3, and Grace 4.

Rafael said...- If I were the teacher, I would call them by their middle names.

 

Mrs. Castañeda's GROUP 2

Luis said...- Grace got her name 'Just Grace' because she wanted to be just Grace by itself, but the teacher did not understand her and named her 'Just Grace'.

Julio said...- Yes, the teacher handled it well because now the teacher and the kids would not get confused with know who was who.

Daniella said...- No, the teacher did not handle it well because 'Just Grace' did not like her new name.

Mrs. Castañeda's GROUP 4

Andrew said...- There were 4 girls that had the name Grace. The 4 girls were arguing about their names. The teacher decided to give other names like Grace W., Grace F., Gracie, and 'Just Grace'. The teacher got confused about the word JUST and named her 'Just Grace'. 'Just Grace" was embarrased.

Rosario said...- Yes, the teacher handled it well because now she could tell them apart.

Adan said...- Yes, the teacher handled it well because if she had not put initials, she woul have gotten confused.

Angel said...- If I were the teacher, I would call them by the first initial with their whole last names.

 

Mrs. Castañeda's GROUP 5
