Snow White and 7 S'mores

Snow White and the 7 S'mores, Santa and his Dwarfs, and One Fuzzies.

What do all of these things have in common?????

These are just a few of the things our 2nd graders are confused about this week and last.

It started last Friday. My class was working on writing a paragraph. As usual, my kids were screaming kindly asking me to write words on the board that they didn't know how to spell. One angel asked me to write warm fuzzies on the board. I wrote it on the board and one of my smartest angels said, "You wrote that wrong." I asked, "I wrote what wrong?" "You wrote warm fuzzies wrong," she said. Another bright angel chimes in, "Yeah you spelled it w-a-r-m." "That is correct," I stated. "No it isn't!" says my whole class. I ask, "Then what is the correct way to write it?" They all said, "O-n-e." HELLO, where have you all been all year. The front of the jar says WARM FUZZIES I showed them. Now you must understand I have said, "I am giving you a warm fuzzy" many times this year. I have also said, "I am giving you 3 warm fuzzies" many times. Would it make sense to say "I am giving you 3 one fuzzies?" I don't think so. Anywho.

This is homecoming week for us. My kids were unbelievable calm today considering they were dressed up for Disney/Fairy Tale day. The 2nd and 3rd grade teachers dressed up as the 7 dwarfs and we also roped in a Snow White.

One of Flo's students said, "Oh y'all are the S'Mores." "Say what?" she asked. "You know, like Snow White and the 7 S'Mores," he said. OK.

My sweetest angel, who gives hugs and kisses everyday, asked me where Santa was. UUUUUHHHHHHHMMMMM. "Say what," I said. "You know Santa and his dwarfs," he said. Alrighty then I said.

Needless to say we will be watching Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs as soon as I can figure out how to fit it in my lesson plans because Elvis (our principal) has a strict rule about watching movies that are not involved in a lesson some way.

Here is a picture of Snow White and the 7 S'Mores. Can't wait to see what they say about mine and Flo's twin outfit tomorrow. We are wearing matching house dresses, slippers, and eye glasses. Which reminds me, I must go paint my fingernails and toenails purple so they will match hers. We were going to sponge roll our hair, but seeing as how I have to go to the doctor for my yearly checkup and she has to deliver drugs we decided against the rollers and opted for shower caps instead.

Shut the front door. STOP panicking!!!!!! I can hear you. Flo does deliver drugs. Can't you tell by looking at her? (She and I are the last ones standing on right) It is her side job. Two days a week, after a hard day of teaching she heads to the drug store to deliver prescription drugs to shut ins and people who are lazy don't have time for things such as running through the drive through at the drugstore.

I just love teaching elementary. We get to have all of the fun!!!!!! I am so glad to be back in the classroom this year. I missed it!!!!!!!!

One last misconception, Flo had a picture she had drawn of a popcorn popper to hang on her board. The object was when they got enough tallies they would have a popcorn popper. She put it up during PE. When her kids came in today they all wanted to know why all that popcorn was coming out of a crock pot. The poor babies don't know what a real popcorn popper looks like.

  1. Fairy Tales are part of the common core, so I'm sure you can tie in watching Snow White somehow! :) Read the fairy tale, then watch the movie and have them compare and contrast!
