So here's a little story from my
corner of the playground.

Our classroom doors have special piano hinges. 
This makes it impossible for a child to get

their fingers caught in the door. 
Their fingers, but not their arm. 

Yep !

 It happened today.

One of my little guys was pestering another child.
Like BIG time making her nuts…
on purpose….
So I asked him to wait for me

by the card chart, next to the door, so we could

quietly discuss life, sports,

and not bugging other children.

While he is over there, another child
leaves to got potty.

Would you be surprised to hear that

then  15 kids leave to go potty?

Now I have a revolving door.

But then I hear screaming!

So, I rush over.

Instantly, I know what has happened.

He is frozen in place, screaming, and the door

is shut on his arm!!!!
We cried together and  I sent him to get ice. 

 The child comes back.

  He's all better.

He goes skipping out recess, and promptly

bites another child!

 Not a little nibble. He draws BLOOD.

Fast forward to the end of the day,

and on his behavior contract
 I mention all the behaviors of the day,

but, friends,

 I forgot to mention his boo-boo!!!!


I can't believe I forgot!
I don’t know how it slipped my mind. 

 I mean I know biting is a HUGE deal,
but so is getting your

poor baby arm pinched in the door.
I can't call the parents, because it is 10:26pm.

So I am telling you. 

 I feel better knowing that you know.

I'll call them at 7:00am. 

Thanks for listening.

Since you took all that time to listen,

I have a little freebie for you.

  8. I just printed out your first grade freebie. I teach writing k-4, and the kids love this story! It should be a lot of fun!

  9. We so can relate to the domino effect! It's like the game wack-a-mole! Hope that it's a better day with less bites!
