My blog today is about a shoe. Yes, a shoe. Yesterday I subbed first grade, and had a very interesting day...... A really sweet first grade class, but had something happen to me that has never happened before in the classroom. I have not taught for ten years, and just started subbing hoping to get a job. Maybe.... One little boy did not want to move his clip after I asked him to because of his behavior. I had warned him several times. When I asked him - he said no and threw one of his shoes at me. It really is kinda funny now that I think back, but I have to say that I am surprised on how much teaching has changed since my days, or is it the kids?? Just so you know - the clip got moved, he eventually got his shoe back, & I got a kiss on the cheek from him at the end of the day. ;)
So many children just want to be looked in the eye, and greeted with a smile.
Happy parents or parent makes happy kids.
Optismistic attitudes are what gets us through life much easier.
Every child has a gift - you just have to look for it.
