School Snippet #1

There is far too much to think about right now, so I’m going to leave it all responsibly for another time. For now, I’d like to indulge in one li’l thought I had last week whilst teaching (French) questions e.g., “Quel est ton film préféré?”

I observed and surmised that Grade Four is a very special stage of humanity. In fact, I think it may actually be the only time in your life when you can fervently declare that your favourite movie is actually a tie between “Avatar” and “Paul Blart, Mall Cop”, and your classmates will all nod and be like, “Yeah. Totally.

You can see how they’re both pretty stunning pieces of cinema to a ten-year-old.

    Grade 4 is definitely a very special stage of humanity which is why it is my “grade prefere” (I don’t know how to get the accents on the ‘e’s). I actually haven’t seen either of these movies (yes, I’m the one person on the planet who hasn’t seen Avatar), but I can see the dilemma for a ten-year-old. 😀

    When Patrick was around that age, he got The Mummy for Christmas. By New Year’s, he had watched it over 30 times…that’s more than four times a day! The tape was worn out within a year or so.

    when i was ten, i THINK we had a colour tv… but movies “on tape”?? what a crazy idea! we just had to wait till something good was on tv and then watch it fervently every minute, cause there was no rolling back. and get ready for bed on the commercials.

    the first movies i ever saw in a play-yer-own format were The Last Unicorn and the Dark Crystal on Gary’s Betamax.

    What I DID watch about 100 times was the tape with Splash and The Neverending Story on it, which was in about Grade 7. Those are the 2 movies that would have tied at the time for “mon film préféré.”
