The Beauty of Children

I envy my friend Kelli on days like this one. On Tuesday last week, my kindergarteners came to school and began their day like any other. They "signed in" and got their "paychecks" and began paying their bills. (A money system we set up to help learn the value of earning and spending money.) Throughout the morning, I noticed that every once in a while, one of them would go over to the table by the door and drop something in a box. This happened about 2 or 3 times and when it happened again, I asked the little girl what she was doing... Independent of anyone's prompting, these five and six year olds decided to set-up a fund for the Tsunami victims. Moments like these make me realize how great kids really are.
