Funny Friday: Funny things that teachers do




A couple months ago, my colleague, Victoria, decided to try something new on this little blog of ours: Funny Friday! Funny things that teachers do and are they actually funny?

Here is our second Funny Friday video from youtube - another teacher rapping, but one that is rapping about demonstrative pronouns. The first video was also about a teacher rapping, but about math.

So, now it's up to you to decide: Are these antics actually keys to learning in today's classrooms? Or are we as teachers just putting on a performance to try to get the students to like us?

We're curious....What do you think? Have you ever rapped in front of your primary or secondary class? Did it work? What did the students learn?

  1. Silliness in the classroom makes for a more fun and relaxed learning environment. This increases student intrinsic motivation. I love being silly with my students but I am careful not to compromise classroom management. Routines, procedures, and expectations must first be established.
