Clip to ScrapBook #5

We would NEVER be allowed to separate lines by gender--we are expected to balance how we call on kids by gender, etc. and would never be allowed to do that.

In fact, we have been told that separating groups by gender is the equivalent of having a "white" line and "colored" line--that we should NEVER let gender be what makes groups.

That being said, I have a "line order" that is posted. I make it so it friends are separated, etc. and it tends to be nearly boy-girl in order. Each week the first person becomes the last person. The first people in line become the door holders, etc.

Line order is great--they never race to the door b/c they have a set spot...and we have 25 or so kids per class.

Food for thought....
