DAY 95 and Day 9 of extension

Today was a great day.

I was in the 3rd grade class next door to the 4th grade class where I’ve been co-teaching for 8 days.
It was just me and 27 kids – and it went well. Of course, I had to re-direct them, and some activities took way longer than I thought they would. But the kids were pretty good, overall, and they responded well.

Oh, and I changed my name. I’ve been Mrs. B all the time I’ve been there, but there are two other Mrs. B’s in the building, so I told this class to call me Miss Sharon – it will be less confusing. Now – just to get the office staff to remember. 🙂

Besides doing math and reading and science and read aloud and a couple other things (and breaking up a few arguments), they seemed like a receptive group for me to do something I’ve been wanting to do all school year: teach them one of my favorite silly songs. It’s the Restaurant Song (or the Pizza Hut song) with names of restaurants and humorous motions and they LOVED it. I had two stanzas and I challenged them to write more, and one of the girls did – so we sang it at the end of the day and then we applauded the girl who came up with the new stanza. It sure was fun. Of course, the regular teacher might not like the song as much as I do . . . oh well!

“A Pizza Hut, a Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut (repeat)

Wendy’s, Wendy’s Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut (repeat)

A Burger King, a Burger King, Taco Bell and a Burger King (repeat)

McDonald’s, McDonald’s, Taco Bell and a Burger King (repeat)

Newest stanza:

A Subway, a Subway, Long John Silver’s and a  Subway (repeat)

Arby’s, Arby’s, Long John Silver’s and a Subway (repeat)”

If I knew how to use the video on my camera, I’d take one.

Most of the kids love to draw and to them, I am an outstanding artist.  🙂 If I’m still subbing next year after I have taken more Drawing classes, perhaps I can help them learn some techniques.
