I shared an article about the countries that are sending aid our way with homeroom today. The kiddos were surprised at the different things that countries were sending. Rethinking Schools listserv has been sharing some good articles. We may be collecting books for kids in La. Stay tuned. Later the kids in first and second period were sent off to hang their haiku around the building. When I walked through the building later I had to take some of them down. I forgot to tell the kids that they shouldn't stand on each other's shoulders to tape the posters as close to the ceiling as possible. I should have mentioned that holding each other by the knees so that they could tape posters deep into the stairwell was a bad idea as well. Most were hung safely at eye level. It's hard to remember to tell people everything they need to live. I'll do better next time.
