The students' writing prompt was to tell where they would go if they were a fly, who/what they would see and hear. One of the girls wrote something similar to the following...
If I were a fly, I would follow Miss Millsaps home. I would listen to her singing Spanish music. I would see a flashlight as Miss Millsaps set up for a party.

dodge ball n.
Apparently, when the students are playing girls vs. boys it if EXTREMELY UNACCEPTABLE for ME, a female teacher, to toss the ball gently and get a GIRL out. A choir of 15 glaring second grade girls sang "CHEATER" (they meant TRAITOR). I will not make that mistake again.

"Do you marry?"
"What do you do for a living?"
"Why are your favorite colors pink and brown?"
"You are my best friend."

"If I had my child to raise all over again,
I'd build self-esteem first, and the house later.
I'd finger-paint more, and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I'd take my eyes off my watch, and watch with my eyes.
I'd take more hikes and fly more kites.
I'd stop playing serious, and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I'd do more hugging and less tugging."
