One of those days #sol19

Today has been one of those days when there just aren’t enough hours to get things accomplished. I almost skipped posting this evening, but in approximately two-and-a-half years, I haven’t missed a Tuesday. While today’s slice is weak on content, I didn’t want to give in to not writing. I didn’t want to start giving myself excuses not to blog and then set a precedent for other busy Tuesdays.

Today I used an activity with my kindergarteners that involved cupcake liners. On the bottom of each liner, I wrote a letter. Students had to identify the letter and then sort them into the appropriate cupcake liner.

When I pulled out the stack of cupcake liners at the beginning of the activity, the kids’ eyes lit up and one said, “Cupcakes!” His eyes lit up in anticipation of a sweet treat and I felt horrible when I had to explain the activity. He handled his disappointment well and did a nice job with the activity. Maybe next time, we’ll celebrate a job well done with a cupcake!

    Wow, 2 1/2 years of Tuesday writing?? I think you are due to have something “weak on content”. And how can you ever go wrong when you say, “Maybe next time, we’ll celebrate a job well done with a cupcake!”?

    Thank you for sharing this short and sweet slice! 🙂
