Hello! Long time no see! Life has been quite crazy lately. I’ll share more about that in other posts! 😉
Today I want to talk about events and dress up days during the school day. Schools have many fun activities for the kids, and they love dressing up and getting to have a special day at school! There is something that can make their day even more fun: when teachers join in on the festivities!
We as teachers are so flipping busy, and dressing up on themed days can seem like yet another inconvenience to interrupt our precious free time. I swear, though, it is worth it to see the kids get so pumped up when the teachers participate! Plus, it is fun for us to get into character!
Yesterday was poetry slam day at school, so the 7th grade English teachers dressed up as dark, tortured poets! We went for the Beatnik aesthetic! We invited the kids to do the same, and everyone had a great time!
My teacher friend Jackie and I look like we belong on the cover of some indie album! It was so much fun!
My makeup is as dark as my soul! The bow is ironic. 😉
So teachers, if you don’t usually do dress up days, try it out!! The kids will love you for it, and you will get a chance to have a little fun at work while still being professional! If you don’t have the items you need, friends’ closets and Goodwill work wonders!
What have been your favorite dress up days as a student or a teacher? Let me know!
