My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

I'm sitting on the floor of the gym.

Right foot, green!

It's family reading night, and I'm hosting the word game room.

Right hand, yellow!

No, Twister doesn't have words.  I planned to tape word card to the dots,

But figuring out two-step directions has proven hard enough.

Some little brothers and sisters help me spin.  They smile and giggle.

Daughter Allison redirects the kids jumping hopscotch and balancing on foam beams.

I'm wish some parents would put down their phones and engage with us. <sigh>

Left hand, red!

A few jump rope or help their kids to play.  Others stay on the sidelines.  

Left foot, red!

I wave, smile, and share compliments of their children's enthusiasm.

I don't mind sitting on the floor of the gym.

When it's for my students.


  1. So beautiful! I love that you ended with when it's for my students. So much of what we do is for them! I love this post!

  2. Oh, your ending is so sweet. I love how you maintained an equal rhythm by interspersing the Twister commands. The parents on the phone, and on the sidelines, disengaged saddens me as well. I am reassured when you add, " wave, smile, and share compliments of their children's enthusiasm." Thanks for sharing!
