Pin It Today we were hit by a snowstorm. Teachers were late to school because of the adverse conditions. People were stuck on the sides of the road. My class had our Christmas party.
Needless to say, the festivities were festive, the excitement was exciting, and the drama was dramatic.
Gotta love 5th graders.
I’ve come to the conclusion that I really should have my blog be required reading for my class. Even after my dandy gifts post, I got more than my fair share of candy, tree ornaments, and knickknacks and paddy whacks. Sprinkled amongst them were a few fantastic gift cards, another homemade magnet – this one of a guitar to add to my ‘Z’ and iPod set from the same student (which I didn’t take a photo of, unfortunately, and I’m not driving back out to school to do so). I also got probably one of the most creative gifts this year…I’ll post a photo of it below.
I have to admit, this gift was pretty cool…
As school was starting, I had a certain girl in my class ask if I liked Justin Bieber. I won’t lie…there are a few songs sung by this teen sensation which have me tapping my feet, and even singing along with on the radio. Heck, I even learned to play “Baby” on the guitar—mostly as a joke, but also because it would catapult me into the realms of awesomeness with my class.
Oh, it did.
Imagine 20+ students singing along as their teacher accompanies them on the guitar but nobody really knowing any of the words—only the chorus.
It. was. Bieberful.
“Sure, I like some of his music…” I responded.
She smiled and held up my Christmas present with a flourish; a Justin Bieber poster…
I was touched. I was moved. I wasn’t quite sure how to respond.
“Wow, Justin Bieber!” Joey said with shining eyes. “Can I have it?”
That would be a negatory there, Ghost Rider…
I’m still trying to decide what to do with it. Another teacher said that I definitely needed to put it in my classroom. I’m thinking of perhaps adding the following message…
I’ll have to let you know.
I'm pretty sure that I’ve got the fever…Mr. Z-ber.
Oh, and just for fun:
