It was walk to school day. Sarah, Rachel and Ella arrived in time to meet the group and walk to school. They were not in time to get a balloon so I tried to teach them a sharing lesson. See how bad you feel when others don’t share with you. Next time you have something and someone else doesn’t, you should share what you have. It was clear no one got the point. I tried again after school and I may as well have been speaking another language. That sharing concept is tough for kids, actually for adults as well.
Sarah brought home a class assignment. She made a list things she likes:
spigati (her spelling)
An interesting list. I was happy dad made it to the list. It was missing on a comparable assignment during first grade. It was a surprise that butterflys made the list before mom.
We walk to school everyday, so the special part was having a big group to go with.
