“Let it go look, can’t hold it back anymoreeee!” I casually sing and my students sing along.
Suddenly their singing ceases and two of my third graders look at each other in… surprise?
“She sounds like a Disney princess!” states one.
“She sounds like ALL the princesses!!” exclaims the other.
“I said she looks like Ariel,” chimes in another student who has just inserted herself into the conversation.
I just sit back and watch this all unfold thinking to myself and realizing all my childhood dreams have come true.
