Most of the children in my class are crazy about Pokemon and it is a craze that is not abating. No matter what we talk about, they link it to Pokemon: oral, writing, even Math and Science. I have a boy in my class who focuses on his work and completes it ahead of his classmates. And his reward? He gets to play with his Pokemon figurines. On Monday, his ‘game’ was to create a survey and ask the members of the class what their favourite figurine was.
I could not help but smile when I saw him putting into practice what I had explored with him (tallying and doing a survey). My smile grew even wider at the end of the day when he offered his Pokemon some birthday cake brought in by a classmate.
The best part of the day was seeing my student happily work and play with his Pokemon nearby. It is always a treat to see a child who is self-motivated to work on his activities.
What has made you smile this week?
