Then on Thursday I had an idea -- would she be willing to help me teach a math lesson -- in character and costume?!?! While I dress up and lose my face all day every day with my students, I was so excited when Crystal agreed to join in on the craziness. Did I mention she's the best?!?!
I have a good friend who has a co-teacher who she loves teaching with, but that was never something I thought I would enjoy. However, I have to say that having another adult to perform with, play off of their energy, have friendly competition with, and much more made the lesson so much more engaging and exciting both for my students and myself. So, here's an open invitation to any of my friends who would like to spend some time joining in on a crazy lesson, my door is always open!! Come experience "Once Upon First Grade" and join us as we learn happily ever after!!
