I've noticed that my special ed students seem to focus better when they are chewing gum. So, I brought some in, only to be faced w/a huge revolt!
"Trident is gross! Yuck, that flavor is sick! Oh no, not the plain Bubble Yum again!"
Man, it's hard to please them! So I started thinking about MY favorite gum flavors. I actually can't find my fave grape Trident anymore, but that pink "Original" Bubble Yum hits the spot. But not for my students. And the smell of the fruity Trident makes me nauseous! Most of the kids are currently obsessed w/the Wrigley's "5" line of gum flavors. I liked Fruit Stripe gum, also (I think it's called that-there was this zebra on the package...or maybe I'm mis-remembering).
What was/is your favorite?
