Friday Two Cents: Let Them Have Their Fun


twoCentsOldNew

Halloween, a time when kids of all ages dress up and have fun and I am no exception. This year I went as Gaius Iulius Caesar Augustus or Augustus Caesar. At teacher’s college most of us came in a Halloween costume and it was a great community building activity as well as being fun. Everyone, with a few exceptions knew I was Caesar. It was a lot of fun and I played up the role with everyone.

The interesting thing was after I had my class I went to work at my school with the children in the afternoon. I arrived at the school in full Roman gear and got ready for the annual Halloween Parade with the kids. Yet instead of calling me Caesar as adults were saying the children were calling me Hercules. I was about to correct them but I stopped myself and thought, they have no idea who Caesar would be, especially kindergarten to grade 2, so I said yes I was Hercules. If you look at the image I did look like Hercules from the Disney cartoon. One child even mentioned that my sandals were the same as Hercules from the movie. For many of the older children I did say who I was and they knew him, but those who did not, asked and then I told them. Many parents knew who I was but the children were happy with Hercules. Sometimes we are so preoccupied with correcting people that we forget that from their perspective they will have no idea and to be honest, many do not care. They just want to have fun and enjoy the day. On a day were you can be whom ever you want and the main idea is for the kids to have fun, why not let them have their fun.

  1. We (my two teaching partners and I) dressed up as the colour wheel – we each wore a primary colour and our ECE dyed gloves in the secondary colours so that when we stood in a circle, there was the wheel! The kids thought we were very silly! It looks like your staff had a lot of fun!
