Today I took 5th graders into the computer lab to learn about the database biography resource center. Each student had their own important figure in the arts, sciences, history, or politics. When I went over to one girl getting frustrated why she couldn’t find any information on her individual, I noticed that she typed in Yo-yo mama instead of Yo-yo ma. From that point on every time I saw a picture of the famed musician, I couldn’t help but bust out laughing. Another girl did another funny move but not funnier than Yo-yo mama when she typed in her own name in the search box. Now, who hasn’t tried experimenting to see if you are listed among famous figures, but when you honestly don’t get the premise of the assignment, well, thats another story. If I had more moments like this I wouldn’t feel so burned out every week.
