"You Might Want to Step Up Your Game"

As I was walking around the classroom this morning, I noticed one group of students all had a  notecard on their desk that was split in half with one side labeled students and the other labeled Miss K. Underneath the names were tally marks. Soooo obviously I needed to know what this was about so I asked my best student.....he got really nervous and said he didn't make it up and that I should probably ask someone else. Another student then  explained that I got a tally when I said something funny or interesting and the class got a tally when they said something funny or interesting. He pointed out that I was losing and I " might want to step up my game." I tend to be a little competitive so I found myself teaching and saying something funny and then pointing out that what I said was funny and that they should mark it down....pathetic I know. Clearly I am not as funny as I think I am. Not sure what the total was at the end of the day....but I'm sure I won :)

  1. Hilarious! I would totally be sucked in by that. I'm pretty competitive, too!
