kelbojangles “And we wept that one so lovely should have a life so brief.” -William Cullen Bryant ️ [Though there are no curriculum guides or instruction manuals on how to deal with grief in a 2nd grade classroom, I could not have been more proud of the strength & courage the Bumbles showed today as they learned about a classmate's loss.
They didn't seem alarmed at my tears, but instead felt comfortable to shed their own & embrace each other.
I tried to keep a semblance of normalcy by continuing with literacy rotations, & was overcome with emotion after school when I found these heartfelt, carefully-crafted cards they'd made at the writing table.
It's the most precious thing to peer inside the mind of a child at a time like this & I only hope more of us can lift up one another in a similar way & find comfort in times of tragedy.
Aside from having her sister as an angel, there's no doubt our sweet girl will always have a room full of Bumbles right by her side.]

kelbojangles Louisville puzzled & puzzled 'til their puzzlers were sore, so the Kentucky Grinch did what he's done lots before: he reminded them banners don't come from a store.
He grinned & said, "your team's won 3, but the Cats won 5 more!"
Then the Grinch found a way to have the most fun: he bid them goodbye & his team stayed at 1. #BBN #MerryChristmas #CATS
