What age is too young to show a clip of the Nightmare Before Christmas? For example, the intro song, "This is Halloween."

I remember watching it when I was a wee 'un and I never had nightmares but I was more afraid of Grandmother Willow in Pocahontas, for some reason she freaked me out when I was a child.
I showed it to my elementary students and they were all fine with it (5th and 6th). And Grandmother Willow was a freaky piece of work.

My 4th graders were totally unimpressed...I got a 'not scary teacher' from them  :laugh:

 :laugh: I was actually thinking about this just last week because I'm considering using the movie for winter camp. I don't really think it's that scary, but who knows. I think I will use it anyway; the bigger problem is finding a version with Korean subtitles.

I'm turning into an ajumma. I like trot music and am listening to it at my desk.

it's okay though because I think ajummas are badass and I want to be like them

Ugh, so on top of the fact that it's Monday, I only got an hour and a half of sleep last night. I just couldn't fall asleep so I stared at the ceiling all night and then noticed it was getting brighter and thought "s***." I also made myself a cup of coffee earlier but forgot about it and now it's cold. Woe is me.

I feel you on the sleep. I was determined to go to sleep early because of aforementioned sickness and because I had to come to work early today, but instead I laid in bed feeling anxious and really present in my body in an uncomfortable way. Like "oh my god everything is touching me"

thankfully I was very alert and didn't feel like death teaching 4 classes in a row for the first time in weeks.


(I seriously want to embody everything ajumma. The aesthetic, the attitude, all of it. haha)

 :laugh: I don't know why this is so funny to me. I guess you can start by getting short, permed hair. The attitude might be cheaper to start off with, on second thought. :laugh:

For a while I was really making an effort to buy clothes from those street vendors in super ajumma style but honestly most of them are too poorly made to be worth the effort.

I don't even need a perm. If I cut my hair short it would automatically be ajumma hair. But I've been dedicatedly growing it for three years so... haha

I gotta learn some of these trot songs to sing at noraebang though

Cool. I teach as young as 3rd grade and I don't see my kids getting scared but thought I'd feel out others' opinions. ^^

I did manage to find a Korean subtitled version of "This is Halloween" but it was on Korean youtube and won't be available if you're logged into an account that's not Korean. Fingers crossed it stays up (posted a few years ago so I feel it should be fine) otherwise they'll just have to deal hahah

Just download it. I've never had issues but I also don't rely on Youtube to work when I need it to. I showed a bunch of shorts this summer camp as a warm-up to each day but I downloaded all of them beforehand. :azn:

Yeah, not sure what the deal is. As it is, I've stuck to just using youtube all year and haven't had an issue yet so here's hoping my luck will continue in that vein!

A new student has joined my morning class.  Nothing weird about that.  But...

In the morning at around 7:30 he comes to the teachers' office, gets himself a coffee and kicks back chatting with the other teacher who's usually around at that time.

It just seems...weird.  I mean, relaxing in the teachers' office and drinking our coffee feels a little bit too...familiar/casual for a student.

That does seem weird... lol Are you at a high school??

Haha doesn't it!!  Yea it's a high school.  Maybe he knows the other teacher from a previous school or something but still there should be some boundaries  :laugh:

Are you sure he's a student? Maybe he's a spy in disguise!  :shocked:

He's still doing it.

This morning I walked in to find him boiling our kettle  :huh:

We went on a teacher dinner month ago and about an hour into it, two guys walked in, joined our party, went and got plates of food, and started eating. I was really confused because I thought they were students (young looking, same hair styles as a lot of the boys, and were even wearing the same type of shirt the kids have for uniforms). I asked what a couple of students were doing eating with us and it turns out they were brand new teachers,.

Is this your school computer or personal computer?

If it's mp4, you could try installing VLC player -- it's a good free media player that has no problem playing most files, although you'll have to play with a couple of settings if you want Korean subtitles to work okay in it.

School computer. Might be a good fix for my middle schools as there are English rooms but for elementary I don't know about installing stuff on all the homeroom teachers' computers. Thanks for the tip :)
