This adorable video has been popping up on social media for a while. I came across it again this morning and, with the return to my kindergarten classroom just a few weeks away, it really struck a chord. As much as I wish my maternity leave could continue a little while longer, I am also very much looking forward to spending my days playing and learning with students again.
Everything about the way these kiddos are interacting makes me want to try this in my classroom; I love the sense of community and kindness being encouraged, the chance for one student a day to feel extra special, and the opportunity kids have to select the type of greeting with which they are most comfortable. I have been pinning and saving lots of teaching ideas lately but what I see here is something I cannot wait to try with my class.
