My son is going back to school tomorrow. He is starting middle school. I was wondering what his thoughts were about it, so we had a one-to-one…
You will be a 6th grader now, what are you looking forward to in middle school? Changing classes. Before we had to stay in the same classroom all day, but now we get to have different subjects in different rooms. I’m also looking forward to the field trips and meeting my new classmates.
What are you not looking forward to in 6th grade? More homework. More responsibility and probably tougher consequences if I don’t behave well.
Are you ready to go back to school? Yes and no. I’ll miss having more free time but I’m definitely excited to see my friends again.
I just found out about a video made by a group of kids called Da Rich Kidzz. They are your age and they rap about going back to school. Do you want to see the video? Sure.
Did you like it? Yes. Its very cool how this group of kids can rap like. Funny how they refer to the school bus as a “limo”.
What was your favorite part of the video? The whole thing was pretty cool and well done but what I liked the most was the “player” t-shirt. I love video games!
Anything else you want to add? I know how hard and long you have to work to make a video like that. It was pretty impressive how they pulled that off. Also, it’s cool that they get to dress however they want to go to school. I have to wear a uniform.
If you din’t have to wear a uniform, what would you wear? Mmm, I’ll be right back. (and he came back looking like this…)
Moraleja: Express yourself.
