Writing with Kids: Giftedness

1 Comment

It’s almost December.

My bulletin board is bare, but not for long.

Today, in the midst of another lecture about bullying, an idea materialized.
The kids love it when that happens. They want good every bit as much as I do.

So, we are going to start over in the morning. We are going to make paper presents to represent ourselves.

We will leave the center blank and wait.

Throughout the days to come, we will write positive comments on each other’s papers…true things that are positive and uplifting…words that represent what we add to the world by being here.

Because we know…even in the midst of bad decisions and some words that shouldn’t be said, there’s plenty of good, too.

We are set to find and record it until our presents are positively popping with preciousness.

It’s almost December, after all…

That bulletin board will be a reminder to all who pass by that we have many good gifts. I bet there will be a lot of reading going on at that board, too.

Hoping for happy reading and writing…
