I look for good things in every day (and very often I find them!) so here are some highlights
I dropped a handmade game board out of my bag as I tried to catch a taxi to work and an old man walked over and handed it to me.
On Friday, my 4th graders wrote beautiful thank you notes to their parents for coming to see me at the upcoming parent-teacher conferences. Today they did their peer editing before turning over their polished drafts to me. One of the letters that I read actually brought tears to my eyes:
[quote=“one of my 4th graders”]Dear Mom and Dad,
Thank you for coming to parent-teacher conferences to see my teacher. I am happy that you take the time to care how I am doing at school. You will get to see all the things I made this year. I hope you’re proud of me.
I am really looking forward to having PTC this semester, if for nothing else, the parents getting to read the letters their children have written them.
And I’ve only had two full-out coughing fits all day (and both were due to laughing)! My bronchitis is finally going away!
