Students are always obsessed with their shoes. I got to thinking about it...and you know what? They totally are. I thought of those mornings when Anthony came in with his cheesy smile and just blinked at me until I finally shifted my line of vision to his crisp new tennis shoes- or when I turn the lights off and there seemed to be a disco ball in the room...oh, no- just Hannah's bedazzled, rhinestoned, glittered shoes that also light up because they weren't fabulous enough before. =)
Well, if you can't beat 'em...teach 'em.
I've turned our love of shoes into a fun mini unit that would be great for the first few weeks of school (because most of their shoes are NEW therefore NOT STINKY!) and the best part is that you don't need anything for this unit but shoes!
