Today at work we were asked to make cards for the homeless. My first thought was……..are you kidding me! I have so much going on today. We are learning about frogs, telling time, adjectives AND it is our play today. I just don’t know if I have time. However I took a deep breath………sat back in my teacher chair and thought…….how can I make this work into a positive lesson. I scanned through my religion book and found Saint Brigid from Ireland who helped the poor. I was able to tie in the lesson from the religion book to making cards for the homeless. I encouraged my students make rainbows and shamrocks.
My gift today was being flexible and putting
others first. I could have just said I
don’t have time, however I thought it was important to teach my students that
they must always do something for the poor.
