Teaser Tell All

Standard

Hello Class!  Time to TELL ALL!

I for one am anxious to find out where that photo was taken!

Well let’s do first things first shall we?    Yesterday when the Teaser Blog went live, there was only ONE FIRST COMMENTER!   Can you believe it?   Within the second minute though we had three or four more chime in but the DEAL was already SEALED for our FIRSTIE and who was that????

Friends Furever !

WOO HOOOO FOR Miss Sharon, Raz, Noelle and Allie~

This is for you:

We were FIRST COMMENTER on the Teaser of June 12, 2018! YAY FOR US!

Then I want to tell you that that photo yesterday was NOT a Guest Teaser – the Professors’ Mom found it and thought it would be a super cool photo for class to agonize over…..here it is one more time:

So what are we seeing here?    This is the beautiful town and beautiful backdrop in Queenstown, New Zealand!    What a view.   We wondered if this would be a toughie or if it would be easy……and we had some really GREAT guesses too.    We kept our eye on things to see who might be our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER…………and boy oh boy oh boy – it turned out to be someone who would get a BRAND NEW BADGE from us.    Why?    Because our student has been the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER for three weeks in a row!    Who?

In the future, should we have another THREE IN A ROW winner they too will receive one of these stunning badges designed by our design team (Mom) so now you have something super special to aspire to!

AND THE CROWD GOES CRAZY PANTS

Were you right too?   Right but not FIRST RIGHT?    Well you deserve a badge for that……………and here it is:

I got the Teaser right but I wasn’t first on June 12, 2018. Darn!

Were you WRONG with your guess?   Well, we are sorry about that but maybe as you take your GREENIE today you’ll start thinking POSITIVE and win a “non-GREENIE” next week???

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of June 12, 2018 but I’ll TRY TRY again next week!

I’m SURE our Cheer Team was totally thrilled to only have one FIRST COMMENTER and of course Speedy’s triple win ought to be worth some special mention so let’s bring ’em on in shall we???

We couldn’t believe it but they say it’s TRUE
Only one FIRST COMMENTER not three, four or two!
Miss Sharon and her team, Raz, Allie and Noelle
Get the FIRST COMMENTER badge now isn’t that swell????
Then the big winner was our friend Speedy the Bunny
He’s tall, white and handsome and a real fuzzy HONEY!
THREE WEEKS IN A ROW is no small feat
He’s got a special badge cuz he’s extra sweet!
You can win one too if you get three in a row
Then we’ll do a special cheer for you
To end our Teaser Tell All Show!!!!

ALRIGHT!    A bonanza of a Tell All today and now all of you smarty pants students need to work EXTRA HARD next week because I’m sure you don’t want Speedy to win ALL the badges around here right?   So this is your wake-up call….time to dust off those globes, dust off the geography books and grab your study buddy and whip it into shape for next week!

Miss Dingleberry thought today would be a good day for cookies and ice cream……………..what do you think about that??????

Yep – ice cream AND cookies – you can help yourself to the cookie pile – just let me know how many scoops of which flavor for your cone!!

Your Professors!

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

Ahhhh – is that the sound of the school bell ringing??????

YES IT IS!    And it means you’d better COMMENT before you come inside from the school bus area because YOU (yes YOU) might be the FIRST COMMENTER today!

Here we are – gathered together to solve a mystery.    The mystery is “WHERE WAS THIS PHOTO TAKEN???” and it’s up to all of you little Sherlock Holmes-ish students to figure it out.

I DEFINITELY studied! I am SOOO ready!

I hope all of you studied………………but just in case we have any newbies today, let’s review the TEASER RULES shall we?

Remember to follow the rules or else….

I will NOT be pleased….

Nor will I…….trust me on that!!

So now that we have THAT straight, let’s get on with the show.    Today’s photo is interesting and beautiful and hopefully tough.    We’ll see how tough it is once I show it to you.   Remember that you have a chance to win yourself a little token of your SMARTS with a badge if you do well.   We have badges for our FIRST COMMENTER, our FIRST RIGHT GUESSER, any other RIGHT GUESSERS, and of course our WRONG GUESSERS.

Our fabulous security guard will now bring in today’s Teaser photo which he has kept locked up in his briefcase for DAYS so I’m sure he’ll be happy to hand it over!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

WHERE was this taken?????? (inquiring minds and the Professors want to know!)

Cheer Team?   You are wanted in class to get this class whipped into a frenzy so they’ll be alert and studying the photo to make an intelligent (hopefully) guess where this was taken!

Here we are to make you giggle
We’ll jump and shake and give a wiggle
All to inspire you to win, win, win
Give our Professors some grins, grins, grins
We hope your brains are working well
If they’re all tuned up things should be swell!
So get to work and tomorrow when we’re here
We’ll be saying your name when we do our CHEER!

Thanks Team!   I do believe everyone is already hard at work studying the photo and ready to start guessing!

Let’s see……mountains and a body of water……

Hmm…..this might be it but I’d better keep looking…..

That’s what we like to see – STUDENTS HARD AT WORK…………………whenever you’re ready to take a break though, Miss Dingleberry is ready to serve up some lunch to you so you can eat while you study or take lunch out to the picnic tables for some air – whatever floats your boat……..

Nothing like a little grease to make your brains happy!

My BWAIN is HAPPY!

See you tomorrow for the TEASER TELL ALL!

Welcome Class!  Time to find out who wins what for this week’s TEASER!

Oh how I’d love to win SOMETHING!

First thing to tell you is that we have TWO FIRST COMMENTERS from yesterday!     So we’re handing out two badges to the lucky students who were PROMPT in getting to class yesterday.   Who were the lucky kids???

Pix from UNDER THE OAKS and Annie from ANIMAL COURIERS

WOO HOOOO!!!!!!!  Here’s your badge ladies:

I was one of TWO First Commenters on The Teaser of May 29, 2018!

I tried to be FIRST but I got distracted by a butterfly outside the classroom door! Darn!

Then we waited for one of you to figure out where our mystery photo had been taken………………..it was a bit of a tough photo we thought – and we want to thank our GUEST TEASERS, the Kitties Blue from THE CAT ON MY HEAD for sending it in to us!    This is for you to thank you for being our GUEST this week:

For Kitties Blue for being our GUEST TEASERS on May 29, 2018! Thanks pals!

Here’s the fabulous photo they sent in:

It’s a DOOZY!   Where is it??????

It’s the STAN MUSIAL Memorial Bridge which is the bridge that spans across the Mississippi River between St. Clair County, Illinois and the city of St. Louis, Missouri!    It’s a super interesting type of bridge called “CABLE-STAYED”…………and if you’d like to learn more about them, here’s some really interesting information you might enjoy taking a peek at CLICK HERE

Who was the brilliant student who guessed FIRST what this bridge was and where it’s located????

SPEEDY our Cheeky Rex Rabbit friend…..!

YAY SPEEDY!!!!!

Here’s your FIRST RIGHT GUESSER badge dear Speedy!

I was the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER on the Teaser of May 29, 2018! WOO HOO!!!!

But you need to know that we have several MORE students who knew about this bridge…………..yep – we sure did – and each of you who guessed CORRECTLY get one of these of your very own:

I guessed RIGHT on the Teaser of May 29,2018 but I wasn’t FIRST to guess right….still…..I got a cool badge!

Did you guess but guessed incorrectly???????   Well, good for you taking a leap of faith – at least you guessed and even though you were WRONG, you get one of these:

I was WRONG with my guess on the Teaser of May 29,2018 but at least I tried! Maybe next time?!

Congratulations winners AND losers……!   There’s always next week right?

In the meantime, here’s our cheery little cheer team to congratulate the winners of this week’s Teaser:

Takes a while to get your Teaser mojo back
We were off for a week and that’s a fact
We had two of you though who were on the money
Fast as can be with your comments honey!
Miss Pix and Miss Annie both win a badge
But they get it from US and not grumpy old Madge
Then we waited to see who would be FIRST RIGHT GUESSER
And it was SPEEDY THE REX RABBIT who’s a very sharp dresser!
If you were a loser this week in school
Just study harder next time and YOU will rule!!

Yeah, we want a badge so you bet we’ll study hard!

We sure will!

That’s the spirit we like to see at Ding Dong School!!     How about we all reward ourselves with one of Miss Dingleberry’s fabulous lunches?    She’s giving her seafood bar a whirl today so step right up and get something yummy for your tummy!

Your Profs will be back next week with another FUN Teaser challenge!   See you then?

Professors Angel Sam and Teddy too…………

Pre-Teaser Monday

Yep – it’s Monday again and time to prep all you students for tomorrow’s TEASER………………….Your Professors are always on the ball on Monday to make sure you have every chance possible to be a STAR on Tuesday.   First Commenter?  Maybe that will be YOU – if you get here first and post a comment you get a badge!  WOO HOO!

If you are the FIRST to guess where the Teaser photo was taken, you get a badge!  WOO HOO!

THIS ONE!!!!!

And if you are RIGHT but not FIRST or WRONG, you get one of these badges!   Woo Hoo!

So you see you have PLENTY of reasons to be here tomorrow…………………..I can’t tell you want TIME our TEASER post will go up because it’s TOP SECRET – that’s why it’s so much fun – you never know when you will see it so everyone has a chance to be FIRST COMMENTER!

I’d sure like to be right tomorrow…….!

I hope maybe THIS week I guess right too!

I’d like to be right JUST ONCE!!!!!!!! Mommy would be so proud!

Here are the rules!

Yep – everybody plays by the rules here at Ding Dong School’s GEOGRAPHY class…………..so just be prepared to study the photo we post tomorrow and do your best to tell us where it was taken – could be anywhere in the world – it’s up to YOU to figure it out…………………

OK Professors – I’ll study!

Our Cheer Team will fire you up and get you ready to spend the night studying tonight – oh – well – maybe you have some more Mother’s Day celebrations to do tonight so perhaps you don’t want to study ALL night but you’d better study a little anyway.

Bee Boppa Lula
If we were Hawaiian we’d do a hula
Instead we’ll shake our bootie
For each and every cutie!
Your test will be in the morning
It will arrive with absolutely NO warning!
You’ll have to watch your inbox
And don’t get acid reflux…..(yeah we know that doesn’t rhyme well!)
Get out those atlases and tour guides
And study hard for a real wild ride
We always look forward to Classes
The Professors really kick our…….buns! (we fooled ya)

Thanks Team………………..we’ll see you tomorrow – you’d better not still be soaking in Sarge’s hot tub or you might have to show up in WET cheer uniforms.    We do NOT condone “wet t-shirt or uniform” contests here at Ding Dong School!

Hubba Hubba….wet t-shirts????

Miss Dingleberry thought that she’d just serve us some cookies today since many of us had BIG Mother’s Day meals yesterday.    So please help yourselves at the big table at the back of the room and do not make big pigs of yourselves.    OK?    OK!

When you touch a cookie – it’s YOURS!  Got it?

See you tomorrow at a surprise time class!  

Your Professors

Tuesday Teaser

Standard

One ringy dingy….two ringy dingies…….hurry up students – time for class!

YIKES!   We’d better get dressed – the Profs will need us and Sarge is liable to be here any minute!

Welcome Class!   Are you ready?   Did you COMMENT?  

Hurry up and do that – you might be FIRST!

Today we are bringing out the Teaser photo for you as we always do on Tuesdays.   I hope your eyes aren’t blurry from too much TV last night or too much of anything ELSE last night!    You need to be on top of your game to “be a contender” for Teaser!

As always we will bore you all by telling you the rules YET AGAIN but it bears repeating because part of our class is teaching you how to be FAIR and HONEST right?  Right!

Tomorrow’s post will be our usual TELL ALL where we say who wins what – First Commenter, First Right Guesser, Right Guesser Not First, and of course WRONG Guesser.    Badges for EVERYONE!

I srudied VERY hard last night……Honest!

So did I ! I even fell asleep studying!

Good for all of you…………I think you take Teaser seriously just like Professor Teddy and I do…………….so shall we begin the festivities with a little cheer from the Cheer Team (who appear to be a little damp……hmmmmm).

We are here to shake our booty
Out of the tub all fresh and fruity
We heard you studied like good girls and boys
You didn’t play computer games or mess with your toys
You should be ready to give the Teaser a peek
If you do a good job Suzie will give your cheeks a tweak (not THOSE cheeks!!!!!)
So shine those glasses and pay attention
Or Marge will make sure you get detention!

Thank you Team!    You always get everyone in the mood for guessing where the photo was taken……………so with that in mind, let’s bring in our Security Guard who has kept the TOP SECRET photo chained to his wrist in a briefcase since last week!

Here is today’s Teaser Professor Sam and Ted

AH HA!!!!   Another city photo – these are sometimes pretty darn tough so c’mon students – give it your BEST SHOT!!!

Professors I just went to the vet yesterday and got my shots – I don’t want another shot!!!!

No we just meant “TRY YOUR BEST”………………OK?   No shots – we don’t like shots either.     Now who wants a snack?   Ready to eat?   Miss Dingleberry is ready to load us up with some wonderful treats from her Ding Dong Cafeteria crew.    After you eat you can go to recess but remember – don’t OVEREAT before getting on the monkey bars!

OK students…..we have a buffet for you today.   I’ve got my EYE on you so don’t be GREEDY!

GOOD LUCK STUDENTS!!!

Your Profs

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

It’s Monday and time for us to get you all warmed up to face Tuesday and the challenge that Tuesday brings to students of geography at Ding Dong School!     YOU WOULD BE YOU!

ME??????

WHO – ME?????

YES – you, you and YOU!   All of you.    We need to remind you of the rules, show you what badges you can win and how, and feed you a good lunch or snack so you will have the energy to PAY ATTENTION in school tomorrow when it counts the most.   First a review of the rules:

Yes indeed – we want you to use your BRAIN to figure out the Teaser……just study the photo and you probably can figure it out every time.    Secondly, here are the badges you can win tomorrow!

Also, I must remind you that the post will appear in your inbox at a SURPRISE time so be alert…………..don’t stay up too late tonight……….and maybe YOU will be our FIRST COMMENTER!

I’m gonna study REALLY hard tonight….!

I bet you all would just LOVE to have a cheer from the cheer team to really get you in the mood for tomorrow – right?

Chick-a-Boom, Chick-a-Boom, Chick-a-BoomBoomBoom
We want everyone’s attention in the old classroom!
Tomorrow is the teaser so it’s comin’ soon….
Either you’ll be a star, or a big baboon….
We think if Sarge doesn’t get out of the hot tub room
He’s gonna turn into a BIG big bald prune!

Hey……WAITAMINUTE!   Why pick on me today????

Oh Sarge – at least they aren’t spreading rumors again about you and Marge!    Now let’s move onto something less contentious and serve up some of Miss Dingleberry’s SNACKS at the back of the room – that ought to cheer YOU and everyone up!

Alright my little rugrats I have a couple of sandwich platters TOO in case a snack doesn’t fill you up!

Roast beef, ham, turkey!

Chicken salad, tuna salad, shrimp salad!

Don’t forget – surprise time tomorrow!!   See you then!

Professors Angel Sammy and Teddy too………..

Pre-Teaser Monday

Standard

Yes it’s time to prepare for the Teaser tomorrow!

Hope you all have rested up and studied in the week since last Tuesday Teaser because it’s time to start the process ALL OVER AGAIN.    Tomorrow we will be showing you another tricky photo and you will be tasked with figuring out WHERE the photo was taken.  Are you up to it????

If you think you are……………..just remember that it will go LIVE at some undisclosed/top secret time different from the normal blog time.   That makes it even MORE tricky!

We also have some rules about guessing!

Also, if you happen to be an early bird and get here when the blog goes LIVE and are the first to leave a comment – oh boy do you get a reward.   A very cool badge you can put on your blog or Facebook page or wherever you want to – you can CROW about being the FIRST COMMENTER on our famous TEASER Tuesday!   Famous?  Did I say famous?

YES YOU DID!

OK, well maybe not famous but it IS a very popular day of the week around here.    You know you want to win a badge……………last week we had a FOUR WAY TIE for First Commenter so it’s not easy!

Just in case you need a little encouragement, I thought I’d ask the cheer team to slip by and give you a little pep talk (or maybe a pep cheer)!

Rickety Rack Rickety Rack
Tuesday’s coming and that’s a fact
No sireeeee no turning back
We’ll be in class tomorrow too
Sometimes this place is like a zoo
All manner of critters trying to guess
When everyone leaves this room is a mess!
Blood, sweat and tears are all over the place
And we have to look at Marge’s face…….
So we’ll see you then and don’t be late
Or we’ll load up our cheer with a pile of hate!

Gosh you all are just a little bit HARSH this morning aren’t you?

YOU HURT MY FEELINGS!!!!

Awwww……..now look what you’ve done – you’ve upset the students!    You girls need to go visit the hot tub!

Yeah you don’t wanna upset the students!!!!

We will be here tomorrow to guide you through the process of the Teaser……………..remember, there are prizes to be had if you deserve them!

So we’ll see you tomorrow!

Get your beauty sleep tonight!

Professors Sam and Ted (at your service)

Pre-Teaser Monday!

Standard

It’s Monday!   Time for Pre-Teaser Class!

ALRIGHT! Let’s see a little hustle in your bustle students – time to get to classrooms!

Yes dear children….do enter the calmness of the classroom….I have been taking yoga and learning how to be ZEN……I am a much CALMER Sarge!!!!

Holy cow – Does Sarge have amnesia or somethin’ ???

Who stole our mean Sarge and gave us this Zen guy???

Hello Class!  Happy Monday………looks like Sarge’s pants injury and subsequent hot tub experience has turned him into “Mr. Nice Guy” but you have to wonder just how long THAT will last!!

Anyway, welcome to Geography class where we prepare you for tomorrow’s guessing game – “Where Was The Photo Taken” ???     We will be showing you a photo tomorrow at a SURPRISE TIME with our TEASER POST and you will have to figure out where it was taken.   Fun huh?   Well yes in fact it IS fun.    Just ask any of our TEASER WINNERS – they’ll tell you!

We have a GUEST TEASER tomorrow too…………….now here are the rules – I know most of you know them by now but we might have a visitor or new follower who doesn’t………..

Then on top of that when our post tomorrow goes live – you can hurry here to make a comment on the blog and you might be the FIRST COMMENTER – you will earn yourself a reward!

For some getting an award is no biggie for some others, they like to mention their wins and badges on their blogs………and we’re happy about that too.    There are more badges to win as well – if you are the FIRST RIGHT GUESSER or a RIGHT GUESSER but not the first, or even a WRONG GUESSER you still get something:

So make sure your brains are well rested tonight and ready to examine tomorrow’s photo.    Who knows – you may get something for the effort!     Speaking of effort – you will be happy to know that Miss Dingleberry – who went ALL OUT last week for Valentine’s Day with her fabulous food spread for all of us, has a snack after class for all of you today.    Nothing earth-shattering but still a snack and since it’s a beautiful sunny day, you can take it with you outside to play in the playground at recess.    Fabulous huh?

A little snack is better than no snack at all !

Miss Dingleberry?     Are you going to serve your snack in the schoolroom or outside?

It’s a swell day out there – I’m setting up outside in the SUN!!!

OK students – we will see you tomorrow at a SURPRISE time then for Teaser – enjoy your treat outside and your recess.

Yeah kid?   What’ll it be?????

THIS ICE CWEEEM IS GOOD!

Don’t get sticky ice cream on the swings!

oops – I dropped by ice cream cone through this hole!!

See you tomorrow in class!   Professor Angel Sam and Teddy too
