In the land of all that is good...

Posted on November 18, 2011 

I was preparing a cute game for math today, but wanted to try it out with someone. The kids were working in their journals, and I whispered to Gabi.

 

“Psst!  Gabi! Can you come over here?  I need you to be my guinea pig!”

 

 

She smiled and said “Sure!” She was already working at my table, so she just closed her journal and looked at me.

 

 

I handed her the dice, paper and markers and started to explain the game when she interrupted me.

 

“Mrs. Patrick,” she said dramatically, “I don’t really WANT to be a guinea pig.  Can I just be a unicorn?”

 

 

 

 

“You bet.” I laughed. 

 

 

 

And so we played “Unicorns toss the dice and decorate muffins.” 

 

 

 

And it was splendid.
