True Happenings of a Third Grade Teacher

True Happenings of a Third Grade Teacher: 

"Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cotton-Tail, who were good little bunnies, went down the lane to gather blackberries"
"Mrs. Schmitz? Why would bunnies need so many cell phones?"

(Mrs. Schmitz slaps hand to forehead...)

Learning a little

There has been a lot going on around here.  We finished our end of the homestudy! Woot woot! We've completed some online training.  Yeahhh! And we're doing more paperwork! Hooray!

We're also trying to learn a little bit of Russian. This week we are working on 3 basic phrases:

Yes - sounds like "dah"
No - sounds like "nyit"

Hi - sounds like "priviet"
Bye - sounds like "paka" or "paka paka" (my favorite)

Please/You're Welcome - sounds like "pah-zhal-sta"
Thank You - sounds like "spa-see-bah"

Then I found this Youtube video of the Russian (cryllic) alphabet song and about laughed until I cried.

Sing along, everyone!   Does that make anyone else's head want to explode?
