I fell asleep last night before reading Cheeseboy's blog, but I'm heading over there now. Glad he was able to perk you up!
I hope you are doing ok. Darn kids anyway.
Is it a coincidence that I added the Queen station to Pandora on my Blackberry yesterday? I think not!I will head over to Cheeseboy now. I have given up all dairy except skim milk and yogurt so he sounds quite delish.Hope you are back to your sparkling self today honey. Your humor is like no other.
I think that has to be One of the best posts ever! LOVED IT!!!
My, my, my Joann. And your blog was a favorite of mine BEFORE. You are far too kind. I should give you a blog award for "taking names and kicking a$$". (Actually, that would be a very cool name for an award. I wish I could make awards.)When I came to my school this year, every grade had been singing the same boring songs for years and years. Nobody knew why they even sang the songs they did anymore. They were the old traditionals, and they were boring. I was like "screw that!" and we did a couple songs like that for the Christmas concert. The parents ate it up. They cheered for like 6 minutes straight when we were done. So this program we went all out. I got the other teachers on board and we did all rock songs. The most important thing is to get buy in from the kids. They HAVE to be into it. If they just stand straight and sing "should I stay or should I go", it's still kinda boring. But if they are rocking, it becomes interesting.The video is of the other students watching the program and I think they were kinda shocked by it all. They loved it though. When we were done, all the older grades were giving our first graders high fives and telling them how they wish they could rock like that.Th parent program was later that afternoon and they went absolutely nuts for it all. You should have heard the cheers when we were done. We did a few other fun songs like Yackity Yack and one where the teachers are dancing around onstage behind them that I might post later.
Glad to hear all is well, and that your blogging buddies were able to cheer you up :)Skipping over to check out the blog!
I'm so sorry that you had a bad day - I hope everything is OK and you are feeling better today!I'm heading over to check out the blog now!
glad to hear that comments make you smile. and a high five to cheeseboy for capping at all up :)
Sorry about the bad day. I'm glad everything is calmed down now. I hope today is much better. After I read this I headed over to check out Cheeseboy. I'm now a follower of his blog. He is just awesome!
Hi Joann,I am so sorry you had a terrible day yesterday. I'm glad everyone else is fine, but I'm sad that you remained bruised the rest of the evening. After reading your friend's blog and starting a new day, I hope everything is much better with you.
I'm sorry that you had a rough day yesterday, but am glad that everything is much better now.As for your post, yes, cheeseboy's post yesterday "rocked" in more ways then one. I had it blasting on the speakers so hubby could hear it. Wish I had a teacher like him when I was in the 1st grade.Have a wonderful weekend.
Hi Joann - I really hope everything is now sorted out and your bad day is behind you. I have just read the post your friend Jen showcased and am amazed you survived childhood! I have been a Queen fan and have loved Freddie Mercury since I was 12, seeing them in concert before they became famous and being able to stand at the stage was one of the best nights of my life. So I had to go and check out what your friend had done with Bohemian Rhapsody and it was wonderful, so thank you for that also.
I loved his post, too!The video was awesome, wasn't it? All those precious children just loving what they were doing...
I'm sorry yesterday was a difficult one for you. Sometimes I guess all we can do is breathe through it. *sigh*Ok, I'm off to visit Cheeseboy now!
Hope today is better, Love. ;)
I hope the rest of your weekend has improved considerably!I'm off to see Cheeseboy.....
Cheeseboy's on my list to read today. I'm so sorry you had a bad day, Joann, and hope that you're recovering today. Hugs to you. :)
Hey Joann, i am really sorry you've had a bad day. I am very pleased though, that the blog world got you smiling again. Cheers to you and to the fine people you mention!
Sorry to hear about your terrible day. Awesome that your bloggy buddies were able to lift your spirits.
I'm glad things are better and will pray to the goddess of teenagers that all stays smooth for a while for you. As a mother of 2teen girls I have had a few days like that recently and part of me wants to spill it all in my blog in hopes that someone smart out there has the answer for me. But I bite my tongue for my family's privacy sake and because I don't want my blog to sound like a Jerry Springer show. Anyhoo there's always a new day a few hours away. Now off to check out Cheeseboy!
Eeek! Sorry you had a rough time. And sorry I'm late in commenting, but I think I may have just coughed a lung onto my desk. I'm very glad everything is all right, although it would've been better had nothing happened to worry about in the first place!
I HATE it when things happen at school that you can't control... children take everything out of you - they can cause you to never sleep again, to get ulcers and headaches. I hope everything will return back to normal QUICKLY!
Oh. Those. Kids. I am SO glad everything is OK now!!!!I saw Cheeseboy's post yesterday and loved it.Glad you are back, Darling.
I'm so glad your world didn't crash permanently!! Whew! And what a nice comedic/entertaining break Cheeseboy's video is!
Life is funny that way... One little thing can turn a crap day around. So glad cheeseboy helped you find your smile again.
I went there and all I can say is that I wish more teachers were like him, that was brilliant!
