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!
