I'm heading to the Natural Teacher's page. I need help quick.

One of my students just raised her hand and said she wanted to go home.

I asked her why and she mumbled something that sounded like

"I want to go home and play on tree limbs."

I replied with, "That sounds great! I haven't climbed a tree in a long time."

One of her fellow classmates remarked, "Mr. Donahue, she didn't say tree limbs. She wants to play on Free Realms." This is some sort of online video game. My students are 7 and 8 years old!

OK. I'm convinced. I need to spend more time on the Natural Teacher's page here at C&NNCONNECT.

Thanks for being there!

I'm so sorry to hear this! I was reading along, thinking the challenge was going to involve responding to a child's perfectly reasonable desire to have more outdoor play. Now we have a couple of challenges (to say the least.) I know we're all right there with you. (Will she at least get to have recess today? And free play after lunch?)
