A Costume Problem

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. 🙂

  1. After seeing the photo, I thought you were going to say that he couldn’t use the little boys room… Taking off the costume? As long as he was fully dressed under the costume 😉

    (Story – Mother to band director – “It must have been fun watching all of those kids marching in togas after toga day.” Band directory to the mother – “Your child was the only one with a toga on. The rest of them changed after school.” I do not want to incriminate anyone, so I didn’t use names, but I will say that I didn’t have anything on under my toga (well underwear, but not pants) 😉 )

      The little boy in my class was fully prepared – and fully dressed under his costume. I am sure his mom realised he might want a little more freedom to move – especially when playing during recess.
