classroom goalie fun


This was a math problem I used in my 5th grade classroom [sign in to see URL].

Gilles Meloche was very angry at Gary Simmons. The two were goalies and teamates for the Clevelenad Barons, but the Barons were awful and Cleveland was a very depressing city to live in. So Meloche wanted to get traded. However, he was the only talented player on the team. The Barons instead traded Simmons to the L.A. Kings. Now, Gilles was stuck in Cleveland where it is very cold, and he was a goalie, which involved a great deal of aches, pains, and people yelling at him. Then he has to watch the OTHER goalie on the team get traded to Southern California where it is warm , there are beautiful people all over the place, and the team actually gets to win some games. So Simmons is all like, "Dude, don't get all mad at me, I didn't trade myself y'know." And Meloche was all like, "I hate Cleveland soooooooo much!! You know I hate Cleveland! Why why WHHHHYYYYYY didn't they trade me instead of you? You stink! I'm like the best goalie ever and I get plastered every night by rubber pucks hitting me in the melon and the goalie equipment smells like cat pee and nobody on this lousy team can even [sign in to see URL] OH MY LORD I HATE CLEVELAND!!!!" Simmons tries to consult his friend by inviting him to his new apartment by the beach after the game. "BEACH!?!?!" screams Meloche, "you have an apartment on the beach?!!?! I live in an apartment below a bowling alley, that is located ABOVE another bowling alley!!!!! I hate you Simmons!!!! You've brough me nothing but misery!!!"
Then Simmons is all fed up sayin', "Dude, I tried to tell you that this wasn't my fault, but if you want to bring all these negative vibes my way amigo, then I guess I'll just have to say 'siyanara' ". To which Meloche retorted, "Yeah! Thats right! Just skate away Simmons, just like you skated away from Cleveland!!! That should have been me skating away ......[sign in to see URL]!!!!!!! Wait! Don't go! I want to go to the beach! I want to use words like 'dude' and 'siyanara' ! Simmons! Come Back! Come Baaaack!" But I digress. Really, this is supposed to be about math so, uh, lets see, figure out much time elapsed between 7:45 am
and 10:09 pm.

Re: classroom goalie fun


No beers, just happy at the chance to show some fun narrative writing to the kids. They loved the story, pointed out some grammatical errors, and easily completed the elapsed time question. I even had a kewl picture of Simmons and Meloche talking during a warm-up to go with it.

As for why its in the dumpster, it should be painfully [sign in to see URL] Plante felt threatened by the shear awesomeness of the passage and the inevitable accolades that would rain down upon me by the members of the board. Thus he decided to hide it in the dumpster so as to preserve his blatant egotism and petty grandstanding theatrics.

Or he just continued doing his usual aces job of patrolling and keeping this place neat and tidy so we goalie oafs can enjoy it. You can all formulate your own conclusion.
