In my kindergarten classroom I only have one job. Line Leader! My students get the glorious privilege of leading the line, holding the flag at pledge, starting the greeting at Morning Meeting and turning the lights on and off when we use the Smart Board. Oh yes, they also get to select the pointer that I will use all day.
My children only get this glorious honor about 6 times a year. It amazes me how often my Line Leader has a really rotten day. Not because they don’t enjoy the prestige, but because they are amazingly naughty! Today was a good case in point. O was the leader, and I was nearly ready to put him in a police lineup! Rude, uncooperative, and just plain defiant. Why? I guess I need to think about this a little more.
