Bumble Legally Changes Name to Larry Boy

Bumble declares “You can’t do this to me!  I am Larry Boy!”  Teacher decides that she can and she will, so she did.  (Larry Boy of Veggie Tales declined to comment on the situation.)

Parents Shocked at Teacher’s Choices

Children are placed in parents’ vehicles sopping wet after teachers recklessly allow their students to splash repeatedly in giant mud puddles in play yard!  Teachers were seen laughing as children sat, slid and jumped in puddles.  What will they allow the children to do next?

Sharp Decline in Teacher Gifts is Expected this  School Year

Several issues, including several puddle incidents, may cause parents to reevaluate what funds may be available at the end of the school year to purchase teacher gifts.

Tinfoil:  This Season’s New Accessory

Traveling to outer space?  In need of a fashionable helmet, but short on cash?   Be budget wise and wrap that old construction helmet in tinfoil.  Strategically place NASA and flag stickers and you are ready to fly!  Don’t forget your goggles.

Conferences are Set for Mid-March

Teacher promises to be completely honest with all parents this year.   (Teacher respectfully declined to take a lie detector test.)

Play Dough! Toy or Snack?

Child tries a taste of play dough after witnessing a friend have a bit for a snack.  Child decides that play dough may make a better toy than snack and spits the bite into a kleenex. 

The Thinker’s Thoughts

The Thinker is currently still in discussion with teachers and is considering upgrading to The Talker.  The teachers are hopeful that talks are going in the right direction.

Classroom Noise Level Escalates

Teacher considers use of earplugs to block the noise created by the adults visiting and evaluating the classroom while she is trying to teach.

    What an awesome post! Back when I was in 7th grade Velcro shoes were the new rage. I of course had them and being one of those annoying students I was a velcro abuser. My 7th grade science teacher, Mrs.McVeigh made me remove my velcro shoes for the class period. I never abused my velcro again in her class! 🙂

    I get Velcro on kid shoes, I just hate it on womens’ shoes.

    Velcro may be noisy, but it sure helps the kids get their shoes on faster. *lol*

    Whoa.. wait a second here. Velcro on shoes is the best thing since sliced bread! You can’t take that away from me.

    One year, I was bad and needed to purchase shoes late in the season (when they were all sold out) and the only thing left was runners with traditional laces. Oh my. Even the pre-school teachers were looking at me funny!

    Velcro is the way to go!

    The teacher’s at Little Dude’s school have actually asked us to stick to velcro, or send slippers to wear in the classroom – the kids get too distracted if they have tie shoes, from what I’ve been told.

    I love the format for this post! You have a wonderful sense of humor.

    And I’m with you on the velcro — when they are supposed to be listening and instead they’re going rrrrip, rrrrrip, it drives me nuts.

    […] Larry Boy has some arch enemies.  I like to think of  them as Buzz and Woody.  Buzz and Woody don’t like it when Larry Boy doesn’t share, especially when it involves the tool box.  Larry Boy brought the tool  box to group time, and set it behind him, which is a group time rule.  Larry Boy was patiently waiting to be dismissed at the end of group time, when all of a sudden, Woody, who had been dismissed before Larry Boy, grabbed the tool box in one smooth swipe and ran off with it.  Kudos to Larry Boy for not tackling/hitting Woody, or even throwing a fit.  Woody’s behavior was so out of character that it stunned the adults in the room, and I think it completely stunned Larry Boy.  I made Woody give it back to Larry Boy and Larry Boy agreed to share the tool box.   Larry Boy has come  a long way!
