[OIK] Tuesday: the best part of the day

I'm working on my vow to write for kids, little ones, for a while...I have no kindergarten voices to draw on right now, so I'll be the 5-year-old for now. (This chart is not from my classroom, but it's nice, right?)

A Reason to Rejoice
Some of my friends are scared to choose-
all they can think of is what they'll lose.
But being the boss makes me rejoice:
My favorite time of day is Choice.

  1. Hi, Heidi. I love what's subtly implied by this poem: Just as your speaker loves to be in charge and choose for her(?)self, there are some children for whom too much choice can be overwhelming.

  2. I've been thinking a lot about why certain teachers from my past have remained favorites. The key ingredient in each of their classes was that I had CHOICE.


Thanks for joining in the wild rumpus!
