Ok, after my Monday post about how my kids were back on track and lovely angels something happened. Perhaps it was something in the air? I have no idea but several kids were REALLY mean to each other and it ruined our whole day. One child told another child that his dog didn't go to Heaven. Then one child had a teeny tiny invisible scratch on their knuckle. They wanted a band-aid and I said no because they weren't bleeding. He told me I was the meanest teacher ever. (Give me a break!)
And one child told another child they were a loser because they missed words on the spelling pre-test. This child ALSO missed words on the pretest.
Tears. Drama. Frustration. Cranky teacher and cranky kids.
So tomorrow I'm passing out these little notes as my kiddos walk through the door. I thought we needed a little extra something. Students will draw a picture of one thing that makes them happy. We'll share what makes us happy before our calendar time. Then we'll be starting our day on a really happy and positive note!
