Today was the final battle which was between the students and the mystery team! The original battle was on Wednesday. The mystery team also had it's own cheerleaders! Apparently my students didn't know who I was in the wig at first but were thrilled at their goofy teacher once they did know! We looked and acted pretty ridiculous in our wigs and sports outfits. We ran out to the theme music from Rocky pumping our fists. Of course it didn't mean much to the kids but the adults loved it. (My husband who wasn't working even came to watch.) We "battled" the students who eventually won! It was a blast because both principals dressed up, many teachers, the librarian etc. Other adults stepped forward to sit with our classes as we disappeared to change! All in all it was quite a good time which the kids will associate at least somewhat with reading.
Lovely, aren't I in a
