After being the “new teacher” at school for the past month or so, today I became officially accepted.
We were singing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” with my 3rd grade group, which they all liked because, even though it’s a really old song, it was popularized in “The Lion King.” Anyway, when class was over, one little 3rd grade girl stayed for a minute and said,
“Mr. Miller, we made up a new song. It goes like this…”
She then began to sing a new version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” which involved the Lion passing gas.
I’m one of the group now! They’re sharing the cool stuff with me!
