"You is kind. You is smart. You is important."
|Grab yours here.|
I created this (grammar corrected) with hopes that you will use it in your classroom too. My hope is that perhaps, more children begin to believe in themselves and dream of something bigger.
You see, I teach children who at times are so practical. When asked what they would do with a $100, they answer - they would help their family pay bills or buy food. When asked what they want to do when they grow up, they are unsure; perhaps, work at a fast food restaurant.
I feel it is my responsibility to show and teach them that there is much more "out there" but I can not do that if they do not believe in themselves. I want to allow them the possibility to dream. I say, this because I have been there. If I had not had a dream of something better, I would not have the life I have today. It all begins with a dream.
As a little girl, this song helped me dream.
Okay, enough of the mushy gushy teacher. I hope you grabbed your copy of the quote. Happy Friday! One more week of vacation to go! :)
Happy Learning and Teaching!
