whoa, found surprises from my tumblr teacher buddy today at the very end of the day in my mailbox at work! Best surprise ever, so glad I decided to take them back to my room and open them instead of leaving them for Monday. I may or may not have already eaten three pumpkins.
Thank you, the pens and chocolate will be greatly enjoyed. :D
In second grade, we talked about community helpers and overlapping portraits. This is one of my students who drew himself with a sheriff and jail cells+glass cages in the background. Apparently the guy in the square one got worst costume for dressing like Captain Underpants and this is his punishment!
“A young child is a whole person, as whole at an early stage of life as an adult is whole at a later stage. This means that children are not lesser beings; they are simply at an early stage of life, the all-important formative stage.”
I had them last year but don’t have them this year and they’re strangely attached to me. They have the same lunch period as me so they’re helping with a special project and I got them to enthusiastically agree to helping me make a video about painting for younger grades. *evil laugh*, I actually need this video for my grad class (well, and to show younger grades) so I win at everything!
so young….Call me sensitive, but watching things like this makes me tear up. I used to be like this.
baby no :(
"Kids don’t notice race!!!"
a number of factors had to play a part in this girls outlook of race. this kind of thing is taught. Guardians, Friends, Education Systems, and Media are all things that could have caused her to look at this.
We need to do better than this for our kids. They need to know they are beautiful and smart, no matter their race. This makes me so incredibly sad.
“‘If educators are determined to get more men into classrooms,’ Professor Williams said, ‘the best way would simply be to upgrade the conditions and pay of the job. And that,’ she said, ‘would positively impact the job for women as well.’”
