One of my biggest smiles last week was caused by a problem one of my students had with his Halloween costume. He came to school dressed as a piece of Lego (a toy which he enjoys playing with). Within the first half hour in class, he experienced a few problems. The first problem came when he realised he could not sit on his chair properly to do his Math Problem of the Day.
After completing his problem, my student followed the class routine and fetched his book box to begin some silent reading. He then realised he could not sit on the carpet!
He came up to me a few moments later and asked for help to take his costume off. He preferred to be costume-free until our school’s parade. Until that moment, though, the children in the class and I could not help but smile when we saw his struggles. He did find some solutions to his problems though. 🙂
Have you experienced costume problems? What were they?
