This video is adorable:
Watching the baby cry at the end of the book, makes me think of how later in life, many kids are simply waiting for the bell to ring. How do we create learning experiences where kids are sad to leave at the end of the day, not ecstatic that it’s over?
One of the biggest compliments I can receive as a workshops facilitator, is when I go over the allotted amount of time, and nobody notices, including myself. When people stay after to continue their learning, that is even a bigger compliment, because my hope is that I have sparked something. Yet, is this the norm? And if we are not creating learning opportunities for ourselves that we become upset when they are over, why would we create them for our students?
We often create what we experience.
