I’m Telling You Tuesday: They Might Be Giants: Istanbul (not Constantinople)

Ariel heard this They Might Be Giants song recently and broke into a crazy, funny dance!  “Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy, shimmy!”

Turns out she learned it at camp this summer as an energizer.  Who would have expected that? :)

Give it a listen:

 


 

Does your tween know this song and this dance?  I can’t find a video with her motions (might make one at some point), but I assure you, it’s a fun dance! It’s not the same as the dance from Just Dance 4. It has a lot more movement and totally earns the moniker of “energizer”!

Moms Need To Know: TweenTribune from Smithsonian

Smithsonion TweenTribune

Ariel is expected to write about current events in several of her classes.  One of her teachers listed TweenTribune as a possible resource for her class to use to find articles written on her grade level.  Of course, I had to check it out.  I’m impressed!

Smithsonian also boasts TTJunior for grades K-4 and Teen Tribune for grades 9-12.  Teachers can sign up and allow their students to comment on stories, but registration isn’t necessary to read articles.

Defy Gravity

I think I may have mentioned recently that Ariel’s obsessed with Wicked, the musical.  Obsessed may not be strong enough…. she is possessed by it!!

I now know all of the lyrics, where the pauses are, which parts she wants to skip over, and which parts get replayed.  Over and over.

I found this awesome Wicked graphic over at Amazon and am thinking of getting it for her bedroom as a Christmas gift.  I have absolutely no idea about installing something like this, so I’d love any tips you have.

So excited to have a new Taylor Swift tune today!!  And it’s perfect that it came at the beginning of the school year because while the summer was drama-free, I’m fairly certain school will not be.  :(

What to do about all the haters?  Shake it off!!  I love it!!

(Of course, I’ve been telling Ariel that for years but now that Taylor Swift is saying it…..!)
