Kids love to express their appreciation and I often receive notes and cards from them at the end of my series of lessons. One of my favorites was from a 2nd grade boy.
On his card, he drew a picture of a lady in front of an art covered chalkboard. Then he drew a large bubble coming from the lady's mouth which said, "OH DRAT!" Yes, this was in fact something he remembered me saying SIX weeks earlier when I had realized that I left a box of supplies in the school office. Apparently, those words had left an impression.....hmmmm, wonder if he recalled any of the art information I shared also?
