a funny old day
The kids were funny today. I put "their " CD on while they were doing
some cut and stick tasks. We have a talent show coming up on the 19th
of December. Last year I had the whole class doing some set dance. It
went down a ball. The p1s and 2s had to rush to try to catch up. This
year I thought I would get a head start on it and make up a dance. We
are working on Spirit in the Sky. We did quite well but the boys
weren't to happy about it last time we tried. Well Spirit in the Sky
was playing this after noon and one by one the whole class ended up the
back dancing. I knew what was going on but pretended I didn't. Boy are
they good. Even the boys were up copying the girls.
Due to the morning we had had we hadn't done any reading. At lunch time
I found a great wee task that wasn't to onerous. Basically they had to
cut out five questions and stick them to the answers. They were jokes
"who gets the sack every day?" "The Postman" "where do fish keep their
money?" "In a river bank". Now in order to do it right the children had
to read the questions. This was unprepared text so it was a challenge.
They loved it. The idea of taking these home to tell jokes to mum and
dad kept them on task... except when Spirit in The Sky was playing.
Then when it was done each and everyone of them felt it necessary to
tell me every single joke.....individually. Now I made up one of my own
to demonstrate what they had to do. I knew every one of those jokes (
want to hear some more?) But I had to laugh at them afresh every time.
I had kids scuttling everywhere to tell someone else one of their
jokes. No one was safe. The poor Janitor came in and he was hijacked.
Of course no one could complete a joke because one of the other kids
shouted out the answer. Lady from the office? No one was safe! Poor mum
or dad tonight **lol**
Aye its been a funny old day.
Tomorrow I have to work out the part of the dance to Spirit in The Sky.
I am beginning to regret this. **lol**
