All I want for Christmas is...

...well, I think I already received it... and I didn't even know that I wanted it.

A bunch of my 2nd grade girls came into class yesterday and said something like this, "Ms. Dudley, we have something to give you, but we don't want to do it until the end of class." I think I was pretty much like yeah, okay, sit down, time to start class! Which is not how I'd like to be, but when it's 2:25 on a Friday afternoon in December of your first year if teaching, I'm finding it difficult to be any other way.

So the end of class arrived, they lined up, and... sang the whole beginning of Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You", complete with finger snaps and synchronized finger-points at ME at the end! What the cuteness?!?!? I died, and I'm still dying over my little cutiepies!


  1. Reminds me of the time a bunch of adorable 5th grade BOYS cleared my counter, climbed up, and sang me the theme song from Blue's Clues. They are all high school graduates now but probably can still sing it :-)

    Now that I've left me 3rd comment when I'm supposed to be prepping my lessons for the coming weeks since I'm home in a quiet house just me and the cat, I might as well become a follower.

    I do have one question though - where do you teach? (what part of the country?)

  2. Hi Phyl! Thanks so much for reading and following! Your blog has already given me tons of ideas and I've only been browsing it for... maybe five minutes? A new follower is also great incentive to blog... I've been slacking lately.

    I teach in Montgomery County, Maryland.
