The hilarious things the children I teach have said.

Circle time

Each morning, before we start our busy routine, I sit with my class in a circle. We rate ourselves on a one to five scale. If you rate yourself as a one, you re doing fine and don’t have a worry in the world. If you are a two or three, you are doing okay, perhaps a little tired or one or two things on your mind. If you are a four or five, you need to talk about why you want to cry.

I got this idea from this video https://www.teachingchannel.org/videos/create-a-safe-classroom .

In the mornings, the children share lots of lovely reasons why they are a ‘one’ (happy). One my favourites has been,

“Miss Rainbow, I’m a one because I got new shoelaces and that makes me really happy and glad.”

Whatever floats your boat!
