We had an assembly today in which we honored the outgoing Head of School by singing "Sweet Caroline" just like they do during the Boston Red Sox games, since the Sox are the HOS' favorite team.
The problem with this was that the kids didn't know that you should actually sing that song in a raucous sort of way. The whole thing was just STAID.
Some of us teachers in the back tried to get things going with the "DUH DUH DUHHHHS" and the "So Goods!" but the kids just looked at us like we were crazy.
Also, starting today I'm trying to maintain a greater sense of order and control in the classroom, so I couldn't really go nuts at assembly like I wanted to.
