Today was a great day! Due to time constraints, we did not have a big holiday party. Instead, we made Grinch Jello and enjoyed a dance party. Somewhere along the way, our dance party turned into a dance contest; boys versus girls. I told my kiddos that I didn't have any prizes. One student suggested that perhaps a hug from me could be the prize. Everyone was happy with the idea. I had a great time judging and in the end the boys one. They got their prize as they walked out at the end of the day. But really I was the winner. I have a class who still enjoys being a kid and is happy with a hug from their teacher. Who could ask for anything more?
Happy Teaching and Learning!
