Lots of requests for more "catchy phrases" for displaying classroom work! How
flattering and encouraging!

First of all, the work "seek" was received with furrowed brows by the little
ones. I had asked, "Why do we seek balance in life?" Walking, in our
classrooms, with our toy blocks, etc. I walked around off balance and faked a
fall, and then I talked about how bad it felt when our classes were too noisy
to hear the teacher, and tripping over our scattered blocks on the floor. "To
find, and then to design their page with," I told them. "To look for, and feel
good when it is present"...as to BALANCE. It only seemed natural to include it
in the phrase over their beautiful Y-tree projects! You all must be familiar
with that one.
