My 38th birthday is Tuesday and because of testing this week, I can't take a personal day. SO...I'm going to throw a party Tuesday afternoon. I ordered specialty cupcakes and individual serving ice cream. I want to make coca cola floats just because I can. We're going out side for frisbee and kickball. I just want to blow off a lot of steam from these tests and I'm going to take my class with me.
Here's the issue. I'm not celebrating with all my class. I have about 11 students that over the last couple of weeks haven't shown any interest in shaping up their behavior. Nothing short of asking mom to sit in class has helped them get it together. So they'll have to just enjoy some games and fun but none of the other treats I have planned for the others who've really made this year fun.
The Do Rights have been great. Yeah, some have their tough days, but they're not the rule, but the exception. So I'm going to dig in my pocket and share my thanks with them Tuesday.
What do you think? Do you give everyone a treat? Some get treats? Don't buy treats at all?
