Clever, Clever...

I'm not exactly sure how it started, but for the past little while, I've been at war with 2 boys in my class. We started teasing each other about "watching" each other and every time we pass by, we do the point-to-your-eyes-then-to-them thing and say "I'm watching you!" as threateningly as we can. Each time they're trying to be silly they'll pretend they're doing something wrong and say "Uh oh! Mrs. Hunter is watching!!" and giggle like little girls. There's also frequent staring contests. One of the boys, we'll call him J, has been particularly funny about it. They other day we were really going at each other about it. They were cutting out pictures of animals to make habitats. J, out of no where, dances a picture of 2 of these into my face
And sings, "Just tell me whooooo's watchin!" I busted up laughing and he of course had a good kick out of it. Well, after he left for the day, I went and fished out the frog picture, wrote "just tell me who's watchin?" across the top and taped it into his cursive book. The next morning he opened it up and started cracking up. The whole class was hounding him "Oh! Mrs. Hunter got you!" while his face turned red. I heard him mutter something about revenge but he never talked about again the whole day. I even brought the picture with us to the assembly and when he looked over at me, I slowly raised it up to my eyes and made him laugh, but he never said another word. I figured maybe he just didn't want to play along...

Well, today I went off to my lunch break, unzipped my lunchbox and found this staring at me...

I'm not sure how he got it in my lunch, or when, but the kids got style!

Now I just need a good plan for retaliation...

That is too funny! Who knew you'd be training your kids for the work force at their age? You are a great teacher, Megan.
