This is my classroom ceiling:
In 5th grade, we´ve talked a lot about how we are individuals and how we have different gifts and abilities to complete different goals in life. ''Zebras might look the same,'' I told my students, ''but every zebra's stripes are different. Our 'stripes' are all different too.''
It's fun to imagine what I might do to classrooms in the future... last year it was a jungle, this year it's zebra stripes... next year? :)
