Mark My Words...

... in four to six years, you're going to have Bellas, Edwards, Jacobs, Alices, Emmets, Rosalies, and Jaspers in your classroom.

I'd bet money on it.

The last big wave of movie names that hit my classroom occurred in 1994 and 1995, five-ish years after The Little Mermaid came out in theaters.  I cannot *tell you* how many Ariels and Erics my kindergarten colleagues and I had to sort through and keep straight.  Yes, I even taught a Sebastian and a Tritan.

No lie.


Tomorrow I'll be drawing the winner for the bag of foam geometric pattern blocks!  Leave a comment at that post only to be entered for a chance to win!


  1. Because I teach 4 year olds we're already seeing an increase in those names in our incoming group of students, sad but true! Sorry, I'm not a Twilight saga fan. My good friend's sister just had a baby and named her Bella.

  2. That's too funny. I've taught an Ariel myself and she was no princess! :)

  3. We had such an amazing time visiting your blog! We are so happy to have found you!We wish you a fabulous weekend!


As always, thank you for your comments, tips, suggestions and questions!
