Love Notes

A student came back from his other class excited about his finished story in hand. So excited in fact, he had drawn lines on the back page for classmates to comment. Someone in the other class already had, so after reading the story, I used the second line to write, "Hilarious!" He then asked if he could share it with the class, right then and there, so I let him. It was short and the class applauded. Then with smiling confidence, he announced that he would be sending his story around the room for everyone to make comments on the back! Without batting an eyelash, everyone complied so positively and politely. We've never done anything like this. He was pleased as punch. A few minutes later, this showed up on my desk and I've been chuckling over it all day.


  1. It doesn't get much better than this - the genuine gratitude of a young person, and a group of people who lift each other up! Wonderful!

  2. That is so cute!!! "think you" What a sweet class you have though, seriously, what other bunch of kids would have been so nice?
