I dressed up as the coconut tree from the classic children’s book: Chicka Chicka Boom Boom for our Fall Festival (which, let’s be honest- it is just a fancy name for Halloween). The kids loved it. Not only was my class super impressed, calling me “Coconut Teacher”, but this week kindergartners I don’t even know see me in the hallway and say, “Hi Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”!
In other kindergarten related news, I was helping a child make some better choices this afternoon, when he angrily turned around, glaring at me, and threatened: “I’m gonna hurt your (insert pause here) Feelings!! He had just kicked me, so I was anticipating needing to go into defense mode. I was cracking up on the inside with that threat In case you are concerned, he was all talk, and did not even attempt to hurt my feelings. Although I would be curious what insults he was going to try on me.
Today I also had to tell a child, “you can stop looking at me with your angry eyes”
Yesterday I was telling the kids about my weekend and said that I went to see a dance performance (sytycd) and one student asks “did they dance to ABC disco?” to which I responded: Surprisingly enough, they did not. They did however (hilariously enough) dance to Justin Bieber”
And here is my favorite dance from the season: We also saw this on the tour – so good!
seriously, you should watch it. you won’t regret it.
