Hanging Batman

Wednesday nights in Bible class are rough. Everyone's worn out. By everyone, I mean us teachers. For real though, the kids are nuts too. 

Wednesdays are a review night, and usually there aren't as many kids. (What was odd, last year there were usually more kids on Wednesday than Sunday.)

These kids do not like to sing. At all. I hate Hangman, but Rachel was in charge this week, so we gave in. 

Let me just say that if you play Hangman, it helps if you can spell. I'll leave it at that.

Each kid wants to "earn" his/her nickname which usually actually isn't a positive thing. I finally decided this was "Smalls" as in "You're Killing Me Smalls." If you don't know what that refers to, you've never seen The Sandlot.

Anyway, Smalls decided to hang Batman. Rachel and I were so entertained by it. 

What was funny about Joseph is he was looking at one of our worksheets to come up with something to use has his word or phrase. He picked his own name off the sheet. I counted the letters and asked, "Is this a word you know now to spell really well?" 


Smalls caught on quickly. This is his second chance word.
