He has integrity

We have literacy stations in our room. This week, one of the stations is Pictureka, the card game. The students love it (I think). Today, as we were cleaning up, I noticed that one of the boys was putting the cards into the box. Since I know that students often cannot stick cards right back into the box without tearing it, I put them into a plastic bag too. Well, apparently today the plastic bag was nowhere to be found. I asked the group (okay, maybe not asked, demanded) to find the bag and now the next group wouldn't be able to play the game because the cards would be all over. The students from that group just sat there and then the unthinkable happened.

One of the boys who had played the game THE DAY BEFORE spoke up and admitted that he had taken the cards out and hadn't put them back into the bag. WOW! I gave him one of our rewards that we have at our school and truly am impressed with his honesty.

I hope his mom (since she reads this - btw, he knew I was writing this) understands how amazing it was that this truth has been established in his life and he spoke up. That took guts in front of 18 other students. Thank you...I will be using him as an example for many years to come with my future classes.
