If you’ve been following my blog over the years, you may have noticed a trend around this time every year… a yellow, rubber, and VERY noisy trend!
It seems fitting that, on the warmest day we’ve had thus far, these Spring Chickens showed up at my doorstep…
As background, these rubber chickens are given as awards for Best Team Spirit in the Arlington County 5th Grade Math Dice Tournament that happens in May! Now in it’s 10th year, we can’t wait to celebrate the brainy 5th graders at this year’s competition!
While the quest for Math Dice victory means serious competition, over the years the Rubber Chicken spirit award has taken on a life of its own – and teams have gone wild preparing songs and choreographing performances in hopes of taking home one of these little guys.
Want proof? Check out this amazing performance from last year’s competition – set to the tune of “Proud Mary,” these 5th graders were “Rollin’ On a Math Dice!”
As you can see in year’s past, the arrival of the rubber chickens marks the beginning of an exciting month of preparation. See these past posts celebrating the rubber chickens’ arrival in 2012, and in 2011!
