In the review portion at the beginning of class, the girl who was reviewing the day we did geometric constructions bounced up and down and said '... and then we got to play with compasses, and straightedges, on the blackboards, and it was SO MUCH FUN'. 

Then they wrote a quiz, which had a construction question, and apparently it was not so much fun. Poor kiddies. But the grading party afterwards went well again, and we talked through the construction problem. I think it was partly my fault; to me it was obvious that they should be able to use the constructions they'd learned to create things like isosceles triangles, but it wasn't. They hadn't even considered constructing anything other than one of the constructions in the textbook. I'm glad I put the question in the quiz, though, because there's one like it in the midterm they write tomorrow.
