First week back from vacation and it’s been a LONG one! Highlight of the week: when giving a very brief bio of Mozart (he lived from 1756-1791, was a famous composer, wrote nearly 700 pieces of music) a student’s hand pops up immediately. She says: “Not only that, but he’s named after crayons too.” Confused, I stick to my guns and assure her that Mozart was around long before crayons. She insists that there are Mozart crayons, so I finally ask her, “What color are the Mozart crayons?” thinking that it is some new color in the Crayola pack. She answers by explaining that they come in all sorts of colors. Finally, another student says, with a hint of frustration in his voice, “That’s ROSE ART, not Mozart!” The confused girl took it in stride and we all had a good laugh about it. I don’t think I’ll ever see Rose Art supplies again without hearing Rondo ala Turka in my head!
I’ll be sharing more student stories and ideas at my blog: http://www.budomada.blogspot.com. Enjoy!
This made me laugh! Thanks!
