Crazy eyes currently

Ok so I skipped out on showing you all an ugly grumpy face photo of me the other day (Thanks for bearing with me on my rant BTW's!!)
So I've added some crazy eye videos as part of February Currently with Farley's Oh Boy 4th Grade today to make up for it :)

Ok - just a few explanations.

Listening - At our staff back to school PD days, we had a stay at our local marae.  This included having a powhiri (Maori welcome), and then we stayed the night.  I had a lot more fun that I expected too, and part of the night activities included learning our school pepeha.  A pepeha is the story of your ancestry.  So it goes through what mountain, river, tribe etc that you come from.  Our school now has one, which is great for me, as I don't have one!  Right, back to the story.  Our activity involved us coming up with a skit, song, or whatever to learn this pepeha and my group somehow came up with doing a cheerleading routine.  Totally loved it - and I'm going to take the 5-9 year olds for cheerleading during our performing arts time later this year.

Actually - if anyone has some good resources on how to teach cheerleading (not really the tumbling parts) please send me to them! I have no idea what I'm doing.

Loving - We have 7 new teachers at my school this year.  And they are all young!! YAY.  I love making friends with all the people I work with, but it's just so much better when they are close to my age too!!

Thinking, Wanting, Needing - School starts Monday.  No more explanation needed!!

Right, check out these crazy eye videos and judge for yourself!


Yup I can't raise one eyebrow... Totally bums me out too!!

Check back tomorrow, and I will hopefully have a classroom reveal post for you to check out!!

  5. I LOVE that video of you trying to raise your eyebrow. Hilarious!! And I'm jealous that you get to be the cheer coach. I was a cheerleader growing up and really want to coach, but it's a very popular position around here so I never find any openings!
