Principal Moment

There are certain triggers that always wind children up: rain clouds, wind, a close game in PE, and – the week before Halloween.  The closer the calendar gets to that day, the more bonkers children become. 

To be perfectly fair, it’s not completely the kids’ fault that they can’t stay focused.  Teachers are partly to blame.  We read aloud Halloween stories, draw haunted houses, sing “pumpkin carols,” and graph candy corn.

Our class has been learning about fall leaves, apples and rocks. We went on a nature walk around the the sports park. We found acorns, rocks, and cool shaped leaves with different colors. We did some neat leaf rubbings in our journals.

Every Friday Ms. Larsen's does something called "Flashlight Friday."  They turn off the lights and read with flashlights.  It is a BLAST!

Why?

Why will kids ask ten times when recess is but then want to stay in for the whole break to organize markers?

Why do kids forget where to indent in a letter but remember the name of my guinea pig I had when I was in the third grade, and why my dad washed my mouth out with soap when I was eight?

Why do kids write “THE END” so big?

Why do kids know precisely how many days, hours, and minutes are left till their birthdays but still ask, “When’s lunch?”
