My inner Five Year Old doesn't want to go to school today. No reason, except that hot chocolate, a blanket, a book, a nap, and some TV is more appealing than round tables, worksheets, recess and fluorescent lights.
I know that my students, who are (I'm sure) much more in tune with their inner Five Year Olds, feel the same from time to time. Maybe even today? So, I'm going to get the necessary things done, and I'm going to read to them, and I'm going to try to find some ways to give them "hot chocolate, blanket, book, nap" feelings. They could use it: 1st grade is hard work.
