Why I Love Hannah’s 4th Grade Teacher

I knew I liked Hannah’s teacher when she came home singing the following song:

“Brown Squirrel”
(First and second verse, as taught to Hannah and her classmates:)

Brown squirrel, brown squirrel,
Shake your bushy tail
Brown squirrel, brown squirrel,
Shake your bushy tail

Crinkle up your little nose
Put a nut between your toes
Brown squirrel, brown squirrel,
Shake your bushy tail

Cute, right?

And now, original verses three and four, as taught to nineteen 4th graders:

(I swear I am not making this up.)

“Dead Squirrel”

Dead squirrel, dead squirrel
Touched the power line
Dead squirrel, dead squirrel
Touched the power line

Why he did it, no one knows,
Barbecued his little toes.
Dead squirrel, dead squirrel
Touched the power line

I think we’re going to have an excellent school year.

    I would have LOVED to have that teacher! I always lived for the Dr. Demento show on the radio. :)

  4. Sounds like that teacher reads a certain humor writer’s blog, IYKWIM.

    Jeff, I had the same thought! Get this… she also has a framed photo of — wait for it — Barry Manilow! — in her classroom. I wonder how she feels about low flow toilet regulations? I think I know the answer. -KDF-
