I just had a little story to share. On Friday, two of my 1st grade girls in my after school class asked me if they could go get their webkins (stuffed animals you can also play with online) from their lockers. I said no, because webkins aren't allowed in our program. It's a new-ish rule, because they're too distracting, the kids don't play with them appropriately (throwing them around and stuff), and sometimes they're used as status symbols to exclude kids who don't have them. So, anyway, after saying no, about 20 minutes later one girl asks me if she can go to the bathroom, while the other one simultaneously asks the other teacher who was on the other side of the room! Neither of us noticed what was going on, but one of the other kids did and said to me "You know, they're just going to go play webkins in the hall." And I was like "What? They both . . . what? Sheesh!" So I went and looked, and yup! There they were. I of course made them put the webkins away and have time out, and sent notes to the moms about it, but I was secretly a little impressed at their sneakiness. I'm going to have to keep an eye on those two, for sure!
