3rd Grade Experience

Today at recess there were two dragonfly's that were... uh... too "comfortable" with each other to be in the presence of children. Naturally, the site of 2 dragon fly's "piggy backing" caught me off guard and before I could stop myself, I heard, "What is that?!" coming out of my mouth. All the boys playing soccer stopped what they were doing and started chasing the happy couple around the field trying to figure out what they were. I started to hear excited screams of "WHOA! THEY'RE STUCK TOGETHER!" resonating throughout the field. I'm about to go breakup the chaos when one little boy proudly proclaims, "Dragonfly's love to do that! They love to get on their backs and ride each other!"

Huh, who knew?

LOL. It's nice to hear some students are still in the dark. I make an innocent comment like, "Tenor & Bass are the male parts..." and I hear snickering from my wonderful students. :)
