We were writing "All About Me" stories as a get to know you activity. One of the topics is what you want to be when you grow up. Several boys want to be soldiers. When one boy heard that the other wanted to be a soldier he asked, "Do you want to be a good soldier or a bad soldier?" The other boy replied, "A good one." "Me too!" replied the first emphatically. Lots of girls want to be teachers. One cute little girl said she wanted to be a good mom.I don't think there's anything better, except maybe a great mom. One boy, who arrived a week late to school, had not said a word for two days, and had limited participation, came to me with his paper. I asked him what he wrote for what he wants to be when he grows up. He excitedly exclaimed, "A king!" Well, alright. We're going to make this kid King of the First Grade!!!!!
Now that's FUN! Don't tell anyone.
