Middle school math. Special ed.
It was a fairly straightforward assignment. I went over the explanation and gave them time to practice. Easy enough.
"Turn around..." (sung)
Yep, this was the tune. The lyrics... Yeah, they're not really that familiar with the song.
There were a couple boys who kept twisting around in their seats. But singing "turn around" wasn't really changing their behavior. The thing that got them to stop, though, was when I informed them that they had the lyrics wrong.
Then another boy started singing something a bit more contemporary. (No, I don't remember what. I deliberately blocked it from my memory.) Now this was getting ridiculous. So, I turned on the radio.
What? If they wanted music, perhaps listening would stop the singing. Because I didn't want to hear them singing. It's not the singing that bugs me. It's that they sing one lyric over and over and over again. And then it gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day. This was pure self-preservation.
Now they wanted to choose the station. And since the song on the station I chose wasn't familiar to them, they ignored it.
Ah well. I didn't get their song stuck in my head, so I consider this a victory.
