Is It Just Me?

Or do any other middle school teachers find themselves faced with correcting the spelling of "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"? Why is it that seventh grade boys, especially, are obsessed with being able to use this word in their writing? Is it just because they can?

Well, I've come up with a plan. It may be considered student abuse, but I'll do anything to make my students BETTER writers! So, here's the plan...I'm going to play this video over and over and over until they cry Uncle!! Bwa-ha-ha!!!!

Well, my fear is that I’ll play it over and over and over again, the kids will NEVER lose interest and I will completely lose what’s left of my sanity! Sound about right?
