When was the last time you laughed out loud or were just silly with your friends, children, or students? It is amazing how, when you let yourself relax and have fun, you just feel better! Do you have some examples of how you incorporate play, fun, silliness, etc. into your classroom? Or do you have thoughts or plans as to how to do this?

Next week's reading assignment is chapters 6 and 7, "Talent" and "Optimism." If you are behind in your reading or commenting, just catch up as you are able. Or if you have a coworker who would like to join, tell them to jump in. Just be sure they start with an introduction in week 1. We are still very early in the book club so there's a lot of time to join in and get caught up.
