Slowing Down the Day

Yesterday was a flurry of activity as we worked tirelessly to complete the film we're sending to China.  Today, I'm slowing down the pace and giving students a chance to take their time, transition peacefully, think and wonder.

In the same respect, I'm giving myself the time to notice the little things that happen in the classroom-- interactions, conversations, choices and events that are small in space and time yet impact students' school experiences with strength.

Lesson choreography like wonderful music will take on different speeds and beats dependent on the classroom focus at hand, and also like good music, sometimes it is important to slow it down for best effect.
