Slice of Life #28: Today’s Miracle – A Poem

Today’s Miracle:

28 and 26 students
(Two rowdy, after-lunch classes)
(11-12 years old, attention spans short)

FOCUSING!

Writing,
Drawing,
Making thinking visible.

Mining books for examples,
Asking for help,
Grabbing post-its freely.

If finished,
Reading.

At the call
For turning in notebooks,
more than half are
DONE!

I guess offering a reward:
Read aloud time at the end of class
Was a great motivator!
