Classroom = Dance Floor

Every day this week I have taken it upon myself to end the school day with a 10 minute dance party in my classroom.

One day during SOL review, my students had been working so hard for so long that I literally told everyone to stop working, stand up, and do the Cupid Shuffle. I learned 2 things that day: that my students LOVE to dance more than any kids I've ever seen, and that watching them dance is  HILARIOUS. I mean, please imagine me teaching the Cupid Shuffle to 26 8-year olds and them giving me their absolute best dance moves all over my classroom at the exact same time. 

Cut to today when my oldest brother was visiting me at work and I turned up the tunes. Today's playlist included the Cupid Shuffle, the Cha Cha Slide, and wait for it... Who Let the Dogs Out. For 10 full minutes, Jason, my students and I might as well have been professional back up dancers, and I was laughing so hard I could hardly stand. 

I plan to end every school day like this until the school year ends. If you want in (and I'm telling you right now you do) stop by room @ 3:45:).
