And...Even More Words..

   Kids have a lot to say...if we listen. I was working with a group of students who didn't like to write a lot (except for a couple of them) but they had lots to say about everything. I decided to let them tell me what they wanted to say, and I wrote it on paper. They were the authors, and I became the scribe. This is one of their group projects:

    It reads:
Everybody has problems that upset them in many ways.
Sometimes problems make you feel lonely
and seeing angry faces make you feel unhappy.
Abandoning negative things can make a better future
And a happy ever after.
Finally, proudly sticking up for what you believe in

can change someone’s life.
