Funniest story of the year:

I was teaching 16th notes to my Tuesday 4th graders, using the Peanut butter Pie poem.

"Peannut butter pie, peanut butter pie.
I sure love my peanut butter pie.
Yes, I’m guilty, no alibi,
I ate all the peanut butter pie.”

I had it up on the board and I said it a few times with the class repeating after. At this point, one of the little boys raises his hand.

Him: “I can’t say those words.”
Me: “Why not? You were doing just fine.”
Him: “Peanut butter is offensive because I’m allergic.”

No joke. He actually told me that he found the words ‘peanut butter’ offensive because of his allergies. It was very hard not to laugh at how adorable and strange that was.






And another video of the same class. It was reslly something to see!

Holy crap.

People think horrid things about teachers. And people always say horrid things about us. Well, one of my schools has been asking for input and someone just sent this email:

Like it’s going to matter what we think?!? :-)”

Note - one of the TEACHERS sent that email. Because we KNOW that they don’t care. Administration has no fucks to give about us. And it’s depressing as hell.

My colleague is out today, so her class watched STOMP. I thought this was too cute to pass up. Improv, creating, teamwork…these 3rd graders are fantastic.

A video to display the flute family in a fun and educational way! Enjoy! :)

I learned a lot, but why didn’t they have 4 flutists playing “Happy” rather than use the flute-less original?
