We are over it!

Class antics are the best part of being in a classroom.  Little jokes, silly comments, humorous little happenings—they keep us going during long days of lessons.

A student falls out of her chair in a fit of giggles.  The classroom sink explodes, sending water gushing to the ceiling.  The puppy visiting the class next door wanders into our classroom.  A bird smashes into our window (but lives to tell the tale).

Funny!  A break from the ordinary!  A HUGE DISTRACTION!

In my class, we celebrate these moments, but then get back to work.  How?

We do a little cheer: “We are over it!”  And then we move on.

Try it—it works!
