Yesterday I posted about how my kiddos were not themselves. I'm not saying they are perfect all the time, but yesterday was crazy!
Last Friday one of my friends in class had a difficult day. It was terrible. It happens. She even said "This is a bad day!" more than once.
The first time one of my students has a really terrible day I break out my copy of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes.
***Back to yesterday***
Well yesterday was not a great day for me and the class was acting like the full moon was actually housed in our room- my friend who had a bad day on Friday told me as she left, "Today was difficult, tomorrow will be better." I just love her!
Today really WAS better! My friend was right! I told her so! My kids were back to being the first graders I know and were sweet and kind and great listeners! I even had my evaluation today and was so thankful that my kids were on their game!
If you don't have Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse in your class library it's a MUST!
