We were working in reading groups last week after a thousand snow days and a hundred two hour delay days. We’ve had indoor recess for about 40 days and the kids are ready to rip each other apart.
The small group of kids had just finished reading a book when Jack looked at me. “Are we going outside today???”
“No, it’s still too cold. It’s Real Feel 10 degrees!”
“Godddd DAMN it!” he shouted.
“God DAMN IT I said!”
“No. No, no, no.” I said to him.
“Well, how about DANG it?”
“Yep, that works.”
When he walked away I turned to my para. “I’M the only one allowed to say THAT.”
