sometimes there are exceptional teachers. i've been using the book Sophie's World as a teaching tool for summer camp and came across this link.


i did an awesome activity with the kids this afternoon. (my afternoon volunteer is out of town so i am working with them this week). the activity was called "Peace Place". i had each of the kids pick a special place in the room that will be their peace place when they are upset or angry. it is sort of like a time out but not a punishment and anger management is a huge focus in camp. they put big index cards on the wall with their names on them by their peace place. they were excited to have their own place to cool down when they need to. anyway....one of the kids came up to me as she was hunting for her own peace place and said "my peace place is in your arms". she is about 8. isn't that the sweetest thing?

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
