This lesson is is very flexible and multi-dimensional. It can go in any direction you choose, as it is the epitome of ‘the teachable moment’. This lesson was given to me the day before I began my teaching career. I was in a ‘new teacher orientation’ and I asked a veteran teacher, “How do you begin your day”? I’ve used this lesson ever since with both my kindergarten and first grade students. It is highly interactive and best of all (for the little egocentric 5 and 6 year old child) it’s all about them!
