There are a thousand unfinished tasks on my to-do list – Prepare my classroom for my 2-day absence and pack for NWP/NCTE just to name two. In spite of all those things looming overhead, today I’m sitting here with 23 kids after school watching a movie. Maybe the fact that I brought munchies served as an incentive, but honestly, I think they would have come anyway. To see on screen the story we’ve spent the past several weeks reading aloud in class.
This…these kids, the loud ones who have a comment about every scene and the quiet ones who say not a word, and the ones who wish they could’ve come or those who should’ve come…they’re the reason I love what I do.
