Fin and Ahnika

This morning, I spotted Fin and Ahnika (Both in 2nd grade) walking to class together, so, of course, I have to say Howdy!

MR. BOWERS: Howdy, y'all! Ahnika, why are you walking with Fin?
AHNIKA: I saw him outside, and I caught up with him?
MR. BOWERS: What? Fin is your friend? Are you sure that's a good idea?
AHNIKA: Yes! He's in my class!
MR. BOWERS: I think that's a mistake! Fin won't be a good friend for you, watch this: Fin, who is the Texan's Quarterback?
FIN: ???
MR. BOWERS: Oh! Uhh, OK, Who won the game on Thanksgiving between the UT Longhorns and the Texas A & M Aggies?
FIN: ???
MR. BOWERS: Oh, well, uhh, what color is Barbie's hair?
MR. BOWERS: Well, maybe Fin will be a good friend after all.

Just a Piece

The Music teacher was drinking an energy drink out of a can. One of the First Graders, Elijah, had this to say:

She's drinking a piece of beer.

Those Scarry Oompa Loompa's

Yesterday was awesome! The PTO brought in a guy who teaches drumming to the kids. He had enough drums for every kid to be involved in a huge drum circle. During the Kindergarten drum circle, I happened to be sitting by Ashton. He was doing well until one of the drum songs reminded him of "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory." He started getting really worried that they were going to play the Oompa Loompa song on the drums and he is terrified of the Oompa Loompas. He got so upset that I had to walk him out of the drum circle and take him to the office to calm down.

After school I told him that the Oompa Loompas weren't real and that even if they were, they were shorter than a kindergartener so he has nothing to worry about.

2nd Grade Poem

Drama, Oh, Drama, you make me shine
Just like the night sky and
Like a tulip when it's ready to bloom!
