9th Grade Goes Against Humanity

Today it was an exciting day at the Hogwarts castle. We started off the day with 8th grade going on a heated house-on-house spelling tournament. Gryffindor made a stunning comeback after being dead last. Students are really getting into this, and they daily approach the board to see if I have place the day's points.

Next, I had a class with 9th grade. As promised, I brought my bootleg version of Cards Against Humanity. I printed out the cards from this website and brought them to class. I warned them that the dynamics of the game were rather nasty and that if they felt offended in any point we would stop the game. I seriously take for granted my 9th graders. They have the sickest, most perverted minds I have had the pleasure of teaching.

Next, 7th grade. I was really proud of them by getting all the spelling questions right and to see that two of my most lagged students are picking up the pace. 

After recess, it was time to rehearse the school dance thingie. I am rehearsing with 9th and 8th grades (the 7th grade advisor didn't want his kids to join mine) and we are dancing to Ojala que Llueva Cafe en el Campo, the Cafe Tacvuba version. It's really funny to see them get all hyper over it. I never thought that dancing folklorico style was in them. Them -- including my niece. 

So tomorrow is September 16th.Really not much to celebrate, but it's school day out. My dad promised to make tripitas today and my friend Angie and myself are going to have breakfast tomorrow at Denny's. Not really looking forward to spend time with gloomy Angie (she doesn't cope with death very well and I believe her mood is rather depressive since Luis' passing and all) but -- Lumberjack Breakfast. 'Nuff Zaid.


Intermediate Thoughts

I really should start giving this blog a follow up. I promised myself to do the 30 days of music thingie and I only did two days! xDDD

In some news, it is sad that my friend Luis passed away. I must admit, I did cry a little bit over him passing, but then found some sort of weird comfort in knowing that even though he fought like a dog vs cancer, it is better that he is no longer in pain and giving Jesus a wedgie. He was always a fun guy to be around (at least the few times I was around him) and I must admit, feel sort of proud to have spanked him twice. I will always remember him with a smile.

In school related topics...

I have started a new cycle at the ICM and I am once again teching Engligh to 7, 8, 9th grades. My nephews are here and one of them is in 9th grade. I was very happy to see that she immediately bonded with the group.I also am the English Coordinator, which means my life span has seriously dropped, like ten more years.

As such, I decorated my classroom -- correction, I took over another teacher's room, like a fungus, and decided this was my new turff. Up went the decorations HARRY POTTER THEMED. And at first I thought my students weren't going to like them, nor the idea that they had to be sorted into houses, but the general claim has been that they love it, so much infact that they have made me promised to brin a sorting hat next time.

I owe you people pics, but the intention was that the classroom was like this one...

My father decided to close the store and dedicate his life to reading, traveling the city, and now he wants to start a blog. I also promised that next time I can get him a stationary computer he can start it and even get his own Facebook page. I can imagine he'll get  a gazillion followers and become the next internet celebrity. <3 nbsp="" p="">
NFL season has begun. Packers won their first game. I intent to keep score of this. Next Sunday they go vs the Seahawks. GoPackers!

Tomorrow I play cards against humanity with my 9th grade class. Let's see how that fiasco goes.
