Welcome to what I hope will be a weekly series here on The Class Nerd, Friday Field Notes. Here I hope to share funny things my second graders say, interesting articles I find throughout the week, and an app and/or music recommendation for the week. With that in mind, here are your Friday Field Notes
Perhaps this wasn’t the best week to start Friday Field Notes as I’ve only had a crazy half day with my students so far this year. I had no time to write down any of the funny things my kids said on the first day of school. Next week will be the first week where I have funny student quotes.

I have been listening to Chris Stapleton's Traveller non-stop over the last few weeks. The song writing is brilliant, and Chris's vocal performance is breath taking. He is a musician of the highest caliber, and I can't recommend this record enough.
