I told my students today that I'm pregnant. It was highly entertaining. To break the news, I gave them a "pop quiz" which consisted of two questions:
1) What is the name of the play we're reading right now? (A: The Diary of Anne Frank)
2) What should Mrs. Harr name her baby boy (due in May)?
I loved watching them read the questions and slowly comprehend what the second question meant. Although, perhaps my favorite part was chuckling at the kids who didn't even get to question two due to the fact that they were stressing about the first question because they couldn't remember the name of the play (really???).
Their name suggestions were pretty great, too. Here's the short list:
And those are just the ones that made me laugh out loud. It's not counting all the boys who want the baby named after them or the weird spellings, like Dakhoda.
In any case, I think I'll have to look elsewhere for inspiration. Or...maybe I should take their advice.
