"Mr Grumble was an awful teacher when he died
(He forgot his seatbelt on a rollercoaster ride)."
Hello Happy Readers!
This week's read-aloud poem is about a grumpy ghost named Mr Grumble who terrorises any teacher sent in to take over his class after his untimely death on a rollercoaster. Mr Grumble's Ghost does not believe in talking, playing, or games of any kind in his classroom and sends the wonderful new teachers screaming for the hills.
This is a great piece to explore your children's thoughts about what makes a good/cool teacher and you will definitely be surprised by their deep insights. Use their opinions to reflect on your own practice.
I suggest for the week you're reading Mr Grumble's Ghost that you bring something to class or do something wacky to shake up your routines every day — just like the cool teachers in the story. Some examples of what you might bring in or do:
I hope you have an inspiring week full of wacky words and giggles!
