Yesterday I told a kindergarten class to find all the little paper treasures on the floor. They loved it. ("I found a treasure!", "Look at all my treasures!", "I don't have a treasure. Everyone else got them!")

I thought I was the only teacher to tell the children to pick up a certain
number of pieces of trash from the floor. Actually, I say, (for example)
"Please pick up 9 things from the floor that shouldn't be there." I always
change the number. The children love it. They come running up to show me
what they have picked up. Most will say, "I picked up 27 things" or some other
high number. I always act duly impressed. They never get tired of this.
