Ending The School Year With A Pop

Today is the last "real" day of school...thank you, God. We still have a couple days of final exams, but since they are not mandatory, I will only have a few kiddos coming in to take them!

This morning I walked into my classroom and this is the sight that greeted me:



I was laughing so hard and my mind immediately turned to the possible culprits! This little incident was so clever and so fun! I saw this note on the board & I had originally thought my graudating seniors came back for one last hurrah...


I was proven wrong when a ton of my "new" seniors strolled in with mischievous grins on their faces. Apparently, one random day in the year someone had a balloon and I freaked out about the possibility of it popping. {Side note: I hate to be startled!} So these kiddos got together, blew up over 500 balloons, came into school super early, and put them in my room for me to "enjoy".

They were scared I would be mad but I totally loved it! I think it's great that they thought to pull a harmless prank and I will remember it forever. If this is a sign of things to come, I can rest assured that their senior year will be a ton of fun! I just gotta watch my back. ; )

Aw, that is too cute! I'm totally scared of balloons to. They freak me out when someone squeezes them!

This is so cute. Very harmless, but a pretty awesome idea nonetheless! :)

I started smiling as soon as I saw the post.
What a great way to end the school year.

Yeah we dont get out until the last week of June here in New York. I love the "balloon room" My husband once did this in college. He'd come to visit me and I had to leave for class. While I was gone he blew up ?????### balloons and FILLED my dorm room! I literally could not walk in the door there were so many.
I should've known:years later he became a (fabulous) balloon artist on the side. See some of his work here:
Have a great night!

You must be a great teacher for them to pull a stunt like that. It speaks highly of you, in my opinion.

I will NOT being sharing that with my fourth graders.

I'm the SAME was about ballons-hate them! If I walked into that, I'd prob laugh for a sec, then frantically let all the air out of them before other's came in to pop them.

Melissa said...

haha that's so funny! It's so cool to see that they are comfortable with joking around with you! It sure shows that they love you & you are a good teacher! =)

That's a might good prank! Its good that you have a sense of humor about it :) I teach first year psychology and its a night class... one year I was teaching on Halloween and three people dressed up as PacMan and the ghosts ran up and down the aisles of the class - that was interesting :)
