Teacher's tip

My students LOVE Dum Dum pops. Especially since they've come out with flavors like Mango and Banana Split, they prefer it over most treats (including when someone has s birthday and brings in treats. Case and point: today, a student brings in chocolate peanut-butter cookies. I have a boy who hates chocolate and one who is allergic to peanuts. So, I pull out a dum-dum pop for each of these boys. Suddenly about seven more of my students are miraculously "allergic to peanuts." I think it's interesting that they never mentioned that before......

In any case, it's been a fun and cheap way to treat my kids. Also--today they earned watching an episode of planet earth, and I gave them apples and bananas as treats. They looked at the apples a little hestitantly at first, until I mentioned that I'd put Sprite on them so they wouldn't brown. They went pretty quickly after that.

  1. That's hilarious. I guess the DumDum people learned that kids will trash their goods on Halloween if they didn't get with it and make some exciting flavors-or at least some cute wrappers.

    Way to go, Celeste!
