Clip to ScrapBook #5

Thanks for the encouragement, everyone.

I know I'm doing the right thing because of what the kids were saying today during closing circle. I almost had tears in my eyes...We did the "5 Tribles" Tribes activity where the children point to the Trible that describes how they are feeling. So many of them pointed to the happy one because, "I like school, because everyone is nice to me here." Some of them pointed to the sad face because one boy fell and cut his lip at recess. I was so proud of their empathy. A few children pointed to the sad face because they had to visit the take a break chair for making bad choices. I was happy that they were reflecting on their poor choices.

This class is just so much more caring than my classes in previous years, and it's so great to see!!!
