Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?

We are starting the best unit of all right now. In case the title wasn't a give away, it's "Romeo and Juliet." I am very excited. I'm not really sure why this unit is my favorite. It's really difficult. Maybe it's because it's the last unit of the year. Either way, I'm happy to see its arrival.

Today we were talking about archaic words. The kids did a little matching activity to test their knowledge. In on of my classes some kiddos were talking when they weren't supposed to be (surprise? I think not. And I don't mean that to sound like that only happened in one of my classes. It is a daily occurrence...) so I looked at one of the very guilty chatters and said, "Bob, shuteth thine mouth." Bob looked at me appalled, like he wasn't talking or something. The rest of the kids laughed. a lot. ha ha.

I made a funny.

Then one little boy said, "Uh. That wasn't very funny."

To which I replied, "Maybe not, but all of your classmates found it quite amusing."

True story. They really were laughing. a lot.

Then classmates chimed in, "Ya. That was pretty funny," and other such comments, while giggling still.

hehehe.

I made a funny.
