This is what happens to you when you plan a special event, forget and then have to do some last minute scrambling! Yep, that's right...you spend the day looking like a fool but it's all for the children, I tell you.
So I ran across this fun idea of having a Compound Word Day. No better way than to start the new year with a little fun, the goal being that everyone would come to school wearing as many compound words as possible. So on the actual day my mind was elsewhere and I completely forget that I planned to wear my t-shirt with "sunshine" and my "baseball" cap and "earrings". You know, things that normal people wear! So when I got to school and remembered I had to improvise. After consulting a list of compound words, I decided that I could quickly transform myself into a "waterfall" with a "rainbow". So that's how I ended up spending the day looking like this.
As for my students, they did a much better job of remembering and came up with some fun compound words.
Sunglasses, headscarf, lipstick, necklace and snowman
backpack, necktie, swimvest
(not sure about this one but hey, we were all looking crazy together)
bathrobe, butterfly, handbag, baseball, sundress
Compound Word Day was awesome!
Don't be surprised if you see me wearing my super smooth costume again next year! Ha!
