My students had midterms yesterday so I decided to let my classes watch movies today.

I'm new at this school and my 6th graders have been my most difficult classes, most of them are taller than me and seem so old it's hard to believe they are still in elementary school. Anyway I logged into my netflix and let them choose a movie they would like to watch from the kids section. I thought it would all be way too young for them but 6-1 chose Kung Fu Panda, 6-2 chose Happy Feet 2 and 6-3 chose Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
They were all absolutely enthralled! It was so sweet. When they are behaving like spawns of satan it's easy to forget they're just kids underneath it all. Was nice to see that side of them

I've noticed this in Middle school too. Some of them act like they don't wanna watch Ice Age or Madagascar cause they're too "old" for those movies but then they're glued to the screen for 45 mins and loudly "Awwwww...." when I have to turn it off. Pretty cute for satan spawns  :wink:

I gotta admit I enjoy kids movies too  :azn:

Lol at one point early on I had a picture of Elsa in a PPT and asked who liked Frozen. (I had picked a few movies I figured the kids might know) Everyone was like "no." And yet somehow everyone knows the lyrics to "Let it Go" (had it on a playlist for a Christmas lesson)...  :laugh: They just like to pretend they're too cool  :smiley:

The funny thing is that I used to let my kids pick movies from a collection, and the majority would almost always pick movies like "Avengers" or "Man of Steel"... but then, like, over half the class would get bored and stop paying attention.

So I started forcing them to watch animated films like "Big Hero 6" and "The Croods", and they're all just so captivated, even when they moan and groan about it at first.

These are middle school boys, 2nd and 3rd grade.

Yeah some of 'em even stayed behind in break time to carry on watching it. I'll have to remember this day when they are driving me crazy  :laugh:

And, to actually add to the thread: One of my Grade 3s just gave me a chocopie. He's such a cutie too

My printer nearly caught fire a few weeks ago, toxic smoke was coming out of it. It only took 3 weeks to get a new one and the best bit was the tech teacher making "Yeee- YAh- whooo" noises as she carried the empty box off after getting it all set up. Reminded me of some 90's video game character noises.

Doesn't stop them from wanting to watch it. xD When I skip to the fight scenes they pay attention, though. Who needs story and plot if you can see ADSJKADFSKALGJA111DFG!!FKAJFALLINGBUILDINGS!!JLFADGAIG[AERUKA111

I wonder if I should be concerned about the color printer... I've noticed some smokiness when printing pages...  :huh:

Lol I was carpooling with 4 Korean teachers one day and the driver decided it was prime time for a trivia game. Every time someone won a round, he or she would go "woo-hoo!!!" sounding exactly like Mario...  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Why is it that even "happy" threads about Korea have titles that sound like the 'happy' is seriously tinged with 'angst'?

Post number 23. Adorable. You're just awesomeness wrapped up in the cutest of packages.
I could just hug you to bits.

And you know what's so awesomely adorable about you - in a few months we get to read your post no. 223. In the meantime, keep being awesome and enjoying your worst students.

You are adorable!

Please keep posting.

Hugs and kisses. Horus.

(I really have to stop watching Gossip Girl. Who even says that? There's not even a Horus on the F$#@!&^ show.)

Back to my glass of whiskey, which is where I imagine our adorable poster will be posting from by summer's end.

I thought a friend was really upset with me, as I hadn't heard from her in weeks and I was so stressed about it. Turns out she is not and I feel 500% better! ;D

Two of my homeroom students got caught watching porn in IT class. The thing I learned about myself during that ordeal is that I'm not above laughing hysterically at the shit my students get up to.

Kids. They make it all worth it.  :rolleyes:

So, uh... is anyone else getting denied access to youtube today?

If you are, could it be because of this incident? xD

EDIT: It's working now. That block didn't last very long.

I'm teaching a class on dating which includes a speed dating exercise for speaking practice. One kid started talking to a girl about her favorite drink, then for a date said "Lets go drink water together!" I have a ladykiller on my hands.

Overheard my name being thrown around a lot in a conversation amongst some teachers. My coT told me they were giving opinions on which field trip to send me on! Looks like I get to join a cultural field trip next month!   ;D

Was at my first "company" dinner with all of my coworkers and they complimented me on my chopstick skills. They said it was unusual to see a foreigner who is good at chopsticks. Now, I don't claim to be proud or even quick but I can survive and not have to ask for a fork when I go out to eat. But I'm still happy I managed to impress my coworkers.

Yay for you! The first time I found rooibos I was ecstatic. The first cup of it that I made here made me feel like I was back at home. I haven't had it in awhile, though. Whenever I find it, it's always pretty pricey.

But I want some now... Anyway, enjoy!
