Synonym Knockout

Today we watched some videos from our pals at SMS Guys Read. They had fun answers to our questions and questions for our answers. Except “Hogwarts” is definitely not a question.

They also played a game called Synonym Knockout, based on the repetitive, redundant, repeating, restating, resaying cabinet of King Azaz in The Phantom Tollbooth.

We tried some Synonym Knockout ourselves. In fact, we ended up playing it several times, as we were having so much fun.

Unfortunately, I sort of reversed my record/stop tapping on a last one, for “silly,” and just ended up with a video of my feet and some muffled something or other. I should have posted it, too, but I deleted it before I thought of it. Ah well.

My guys have funny “thinking faces.”

Questions and Answers for IBRG

Hello guy readers. Mr. H and I are working hard to keep this thing on track as we wrap up our Guys Read year.

My guys met Wednesday to watch the SMS videos and film one of our own. This one is inspired by a line from Phantom Tollbooth about “questions never answered” and “answers to questions never asked.”  Our answerless questions and questionless answers are pretty silly. Hope your responses are, too!

Return of IBRG

I’ve been so bad. So very bad. Do teachers ever seem busy to you? We’re busy!

Our club proper met last week to discuss The Phantom Tollbooth. We’re excited to get some IBRG craziness going.

I’ve got two videos for you. The first we made a few weeks ago, but were waiting for a permission form. I finally just cut him out (better luck next time!). We’ve got a question for you in there.

Then we have a response video to Mr. H’s question to start things off.

Mr. H and I have been in touch to figure out our next IBRGivity. The next video will come sooner!
