I bet you're thinking...uh what is with that title!?
You straight trippin' boo.
Well, I just got off the phone with a good friend of mine...and she had texted me earlier about a funny(sorta) story.
And it goes a little something like this...
One year I was reading a book to my kinder darlings. I think I was doing an author study on Eric Carle or Leo Lionni....I can't remember. ANYWAYS after I read the story I decided to show them an animated version on YouTube. We watched a short clip...then they begged me to watch another. We did....then they begged for another and I couldn't resist their charming ways....So I decided we would watch ONE more and I would choose. I noticed that YouTube had a list of suggestions to the right of the video and one of those suggestions was The Giving Tree.
I LOVE Shel Silverstein..He makes my heart happy. And I was so excited to share that story to my little ones. Many of them had never heard it so I thought....Ok, we could watch this story and move on with our day.
I clicked play.
The video started and it was all good...until.
I noticed the story line seemed a little different...the little boy was saying something about his parents dying in a fire...I quickly grabbed the mouse to hit stop because I had a funny feeling this wasn't the story of The Giving Tree that I was familiar with.
Well I moved too slow because...
The next thing I (and my room full of 5 year olds) hear is the little boy demanding that the tree give him all "your friggin' apples!" BUT THE BOY DIDN'T SAY FRIGGIN' HE ACTUALLY CURSED!
I died. DIED!
I had to have a conversation with my littles, send a note home, and let the principal know what happened.
Everyone was really supportive about the whole thing but...I was a wreck.
ACK! It's a funny story NOW...
Beware of YouTube...it's not always what it seems.
Well I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving...I cooked all day...then ate all night. Then shopped the next day...Then got my creating on!
