Yep, I’m old

28 Jan

I knew this day would come eventually…but last Friday it was confirmed.  I’m old.

While the students were reading their guided reading books, one girl raised her hand to ask what a word meant/was.  What was that word pray tell?

Video Cassette


I included a visual just in case there were other young whippersnappers out there who had no clue as to what I was referring to. 

Another trend that leads me to believe my students  think I’m ancient is the “phones” they make during play dough time.  When they told me they were making phones, I thought of a phone that you hold in your hand without a screen up to your face…you know…a phone! 

Nope, when they make phones they are all cell phones of some variety.  It’s crazy.  I have to remind myself that they have probably never really seen a “real” phone.  All of my students were born in the 2000’s.  How crazy is that?!

    I realized I was old when the kids I work with thought Steven Tyler was famous for American Idol. Aerosmith who?

      Ha! I told the little girl I was very, very sad…
