Have you guys ever watched this Saturday Night Live sketch? It's one of my all time favorites. Ant DVR'd the Best of Steve Martin SNL special and of course the King Tut sketch was on it. When I was in 5th grade we spent a good month or so learning about ancient Egypt. One day my teacher brought in a tape of this particular SNL sketch. Of course my class loved the sketch and made our teacher let us watch it no less than five times that day!

5th grade was my favorite year of school eva. My teacher, Mrs. Rquibi, was amazing. During our ice age unit she transformed our classroom in to a cave where we carved tools out of soap and painted cave drawings on little bits of plaster. We also teamed up with another class to do The Dig. For The Dig each class had to come up with a civilization and create a history, language and artifacts. We then had to break all our artifacts and buried everything in a little plot on the playground. Then we got to dig up the other class's stuff and had to try and figure out what their civilization was. It was so fun!

Ohhhh to be in 5th grade again! I don't have a copy of my 5th grade class photo (Too bad, it was pretty awesome! I wore a shirt that Clarissa Explains It All also wore!), so here is my 4th grade picture.


OMG that dress! More specificially... that collar!
