validation from a first grader

After weeks of dedicated practice with their sight words, my six students finally earned their ice cream party. They got all of their "bubbles"!

So yesterday, I set out the big tub of ice cream, the chocolate syrup, and the rainbow sprinkles, and we all dug in! There were lots of giggles and "yums" all around the table. Some kids stirred their sundae all around so that it became like a milkshake. One kid tattled on those kids.

But my favorite part of the afternoon was when "Miguel", chocolate syrup mustache in place, pointed an ice cream-covered finger at me and declared:

"You're NICE!"

Fun! I had a student tell me that they liked my face today...I *think* that's a compliment?! Way to go with mastery of bubbles! :-)

I'm picturing it almost as an accusation ;) Great work on the sight words!

How cute, to be declared as "nice"! That means a lot, coming from a kid.

Sounds like fun!

Ice cream bribery works all the time. It is how I ensure all my children love me.

This week I had a 9th grader ask me during class discussion why my nose was so out of wack as he waved his hand is an s-shape...

You ARE nice! What a good teacher! I'm still using that technique to get my Ethan through his.
