Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Tailgatin' Fun

Each Friday I play "Football Friday" with my classes. It's a game entirely of my own creation in which I give them a list of 9 of the college games for that week and they try to predict who will win each game.

I know - - - SHOCKER that I'd make up a football game.

My Anatomy class, who are all seniors, decided they wanted to have a tailgate party for Football Friday.

Of course it was my tailgate and my lawn chairs that we used.

Everyone helped bring the food - - - and we had quite a spread with nachos, hot dogs, chips & dip, brownies and cupcakes.

They consented to a "posed" picture, and then - - -

A wild and crazy one.

One of these girls tried to hide from my camera, but I got her anyway.

It was a fun "first" in my teaching career.

What fun! I don't think that I had any teachers in H.S. that were fun and cool enough to allow us that kind of fun. No wonder your "kids" love you!

All I can think about it that you have only 10 kids in your class! Can that be true or were more kids than just that one hiding from the camera.

I think you should have football Friday on your blog as well! :) I'd love to know what teams are playing, and I love guessing games when I have a 50% chance of being right.

You are a rockin' teacher!! I go to our local high school football games, and understand most of it, but am not a lover of football like you! Now softball, that's a different story! FYI, my hubs and Drew are at the VA Tech and Marshall game today! They love football:~)

Cue the voice of the parent from the kid that never goes to class, "why are you serving the kids junk food, those dont' follow the schools healthy meals program" oh wait sorry that just happens at my kids school!:)

Your students look sweet and wholesome! And only ten?
No wonder you went back to work!

I'm sure I would have enjoyed science a whole lot more if you had been my teacher! Your students are lucky to have you for a teacher. You make learning fun!

Awesome! You must be the funnest teacher EVER!!! I'm very impressed. Glad you had a great time. : )

Lori R. said...

If I had fun teachers like you in school, I might have not ducked out of Anatomy. I might have enjoyed Science in general. As it was I kinda ditched the class and found other things to do in the library...

Those kids are so lucky to be in your class. I wish I had had you for a teacher. You make learning fun!
