Sweet Life

At the end of each day, I choose one student to receive a red licorice. The name is kept secret and only revealed if the child packs up silently and gets in line without a peep. Since it could be anyone, they all line up quietly in the hopes they are the one. 

After handing out the licorice today, a kid said: 

"Why is it called licorice? You don't lick them. They should be cheworice. Ice cream cones should be called licorice."

Good point, young man. Good point.

I am new to reading your blog and I want to thank you for sharing your stories! I was laughing so hard that my son came in the room to see what I was looking at (he loved your stories and videos too). I am just finishing my B.S. in education and I will student teach this fall. I can't wait to have my own stories!

Hi Edna

Your blog is brilliant! I have been giggling away for quite a while reading what you have to say.
I am a first year teacher and start my new job in a week (Hooray!).
I myself am very honest...much to others dismay ;), so it was refreshing to read how you wrote.

I have just started up a blog of my own, would love for you to read it!


I have only just started so would love your comments and some advice on starting up a blog etc.

All the best!

Thank you for the kind words and personal invitation to read your blog. I look forward to it. Best of luck as you dive in to your first year. Teaching really is the greatest job in the world. Savor it, even when it's difficult. :-)

I love your stories from the classroom. I am currently seeking my teaching degree but have taught in a Head Start classroom the last ten years. I can so relate to your blog. Thanks for a good laugh!
