Kids and Humor or Funny Things Kids Say

I’m very interested in little kid humor. This is something I’d like to explore in my research class. How does humor affect teaching style? How does humor change as students progress in school?

Welcome to the good life.

This week has felt more like the “real world” or what I would expect to feel like as an adult. Although we did not have classes Monday, thank goodness, having class, work and coaching all week has been exhausting.

Conference Presentation

I’ve gotten so caught up in my schoolwork, that I haven’t had a chance to tell you all about something amazing that happened two weekends ago! The weekend of April 15th, I went to D.C. to the Eastern Communications Association Conference to present my very own research!

Man in the Mirror

What a wonderful day outside! This weather is about as close to perfect as it has been since I’ve been here. In the high 60′s/low 70′s with a breeze? Yes, please! I’m excited to get closer to the summer in Buffalo because EVERYONE says that it is great. I have been online, checking out some festivals and other happenings during the summer and found some cool things. Taste of Buffalo, the National Buffalo Wing Festival, the Hellenic Festival, what could beat that? Not much.

Not sure what it is, hoping it’s just the change in weather, but I’ve had a killer headache for the last couple days and it’s not helping my productivity.

It’s really nice out today — 78 degrees — but they’re calling for storms later, which is fine cause I love thunderstorms.

Turtles and Teaching

From where I’m sitting, I can see a turtle. And a river. And a palm tree. And hear kids swimming in the pool.

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet.

Although the weather has been anything but cooperative, my JV girl’s lacrosse team at Nichols has played two games. Let me give you a little background about my team. Many of the girls have played before but a few picked up sticks two months ago. Our team has great energy and supports each other to the fullest, no matter what their skill level.
