She told me advice she got her first year of teaching. She said when things got tough to "pick one kid." Pick one kid to focus on to make a difference in one kids life. What could be more simple or powerful? In other professions you focus on one task at a time. In our profession we often have 500+ people to focus. So is one enough? Today it is.
I wanted to share with you one special kid that made my day. This little girl is in a large class but she shines. A little light that I want to keep shining bright! Usually I pick a difficult kid to be that one kid, but this year, she's my one kid.
Look what she made with our "magic seed" project. We read The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle. I gave them a tiny "magic" seed that could grow any type of plant they could dream of. We had motorcycle plants, pizza plants, kid plants, cupcake plants, butterfly plants, the list goes on! This is her giant art flower. She incorporated all the lines we've been learning about in art!
