Super cute Cause/Effect Books. Check it out. (Excuse the cursive - we are still practicing)
We also made Lorax mustaches lol (found those on Pinterest).
I drew this and made a template. Grab this freebie.
I made arrangements to see the 3-D version of The Lorax. When we arrived there (on time, mind you - 30 min before show time), the three staff members (yes, I said 3) were just popping the first kernels of popcorn and placing the nozzles on the soda fountain. Are you kidding me?!? With 128 kids there, really?!? We gave notice - it's not like it was "Surprise, we're here!"
Then, we sent the kids into the theatre to sit and wait. "I thought we were going to see a 3-D movie?" one child asked.
My blood pressure got a bit higher.
"My paperwork says you are going to see the 2-D movie," the "manager" replied.
Quickly, I whipped out my cell phone and dialed the corporate office. But oh they are closed. Colorado is 2 hours behind us. *Ugh*
Now it's creeping up to 10:00, an hour after our arrival (and 30 minutes after our anticipated start time). Parents are racing back and forth with soda and popcorn to give to our kiddos. The three __(insert colorful plural noun)__ behind the counter are scrambling to finish the snacks.
Meanwhile, I call corporate UH-gain and finally get a live person - actually the girl who helped me from day one. I tell her the dilemma and she tells me that her records show that we are signed up for a 2-D movie.
"If I wanted to see a 2-D movie, I would've taken my kids to the theatre five minutes from our school. We drove 30 minutes to get here. I don't care what your computer screen says, I know what I asked for - a 3-D movie."
"Well you can see the 3-D movie but it costs extra," was her "textbook" response.
"This is what's going to happen: I asked for a 3-D movie, we are getting a 3-D movie and we are NOT going to pay extra."
"Is there a manager nearby?"
So the drama fizzled and we started the movie (45 minutes late). After all that, The Lorax was a GREAT movie. The kids loved it and it was such a lovely rendition of the book and then some.
Oh, and did I mention that the Science Test was postponed yet ANOTHER day. Good thing they are called lesson "plans". Kids took it Friday :)
