October is a month you just have to get through.
The Spoon Wars is a simple game to get teachers acting silly. I think it is good for kids to see their teachers acting silly. It is also good for a faculty to do something together besides talk about discipline. And grades. And lesson plans. And – oh man, I’m getting tired just thinking about it.
Here’s how it works: Every teacher is responsible for having a spoon of some kind. The game is won by asking other teachers for their spoon. If someone doesn’t have theirs, then they’re out. The last person who has not been caught without a spoon is the winner.
If you also want to tape spoons to yourself or run down the hall screaming, “SPOOOOON,” that is up to you.
