Clip to ScrapBook #24

I understand both points of view. You are a teacher that cares. You pick out projects that are suppose to enrich and be fun too. It really sucks when parental units don't hold up their end of the bargain. It doubly sucks when administration doesn't seem to support you.

For a decent spin on the Karma Wheel, I might baby step this kid through the project. Paper from the recycle bin, scrappy crayons and pencil is pretty much all you need? Side of a large card board box for poster board. (get this from the custodian, they can almost always scrounge a box) A black Sharpie if you feel generous. Have the kid hustle on the down times at school. Supplies that cost you nothing. If it's during free time, you aren't missing your free time (lunch/recess). Maybe this will time the process finally clicks in the kid's head.

Hope today is better, and you have a restful weekend.
