I got a list from somewhere that at first glance looked great. It had
all sorts of things to do on it that looked perfect for elementary age.
On closer inspection, one of the things to do was to "draw Bill Clinton
as a woman", another one said "Draw a picture of someone you would like
to punch in the nose." Cute, huh?
Actually, it was a kid who pointed that out to me. I crossed them out
with black sharpie and left the list on the wall. Kids could still see
it, but I told them that we weren't going to do those inappropriate
things for projects. Just yesterday, one of the kids asked me if the
items were highlighted or crossed out!!! I guess it's time for me to
retype the entire list., minus the two no-nos. It's a huge list to only
have those two things included. I wonder if it was someone's idea of a
joke. THey are typed about half to 2/3's of the way down the list. I
guess it always pays to read EVERY SINGLE WORD of something you are
borrowing from the net or a mag. for kids.
