Gopher Faces

My third grade students have recently discovered the "gopher face" - they wipe their front teeth dry, and stick their upper lip onto their teeth. They think this is hysterical, and continually crack each other up. Well, yesterday, after repeated gophers kept popping up during my music lesson, I asked the kiddos in the back row to separate from each other and quit the facial gophering. Yeah, that worked. I had only spread the gopheritis throughout my room, and the two kiddos ended up in my not-so-happy graces.

Today, I received this note of apology from one of the gophers himself. Who gets an apology note from a kid making gopher faces!? Too funny! No other adult knew about this, so I love the fact that he took responsibility for exactly what he was doing. What a great kid!

We call it the Fire Marshall Bill Face. If you don't know what I'm talking about - I think it is worth a youtube look up!

Heavens, yes! I've always been a Jim Carrey fan! This is probably why it's so hard for me not to crack up when they are making those ridiculous faces! :)
