Today I was back at the Elementary school I have been helping at. I had a great day with my student. He got some cool new shoe laces that stretch instead of tie so that when he kicks his shoes off they are easier to get back on him. He was very excited about this and was running around showing everyone! Once we finally settled down we played with cars, then legos then with playdough. It was very cold out today so we stayed inside in the cafeteria the whole time. I think that he was excited about this and selfishly I was too. After all of the games that we played, it was snack time and he went up to help out with snack prep like he usually does. Once he got his food we sat down together to eat and he was on his best behavior. After finishing his snack, we decided to do a puzzle. The puzzle took us a long time but he really enjoyed it and we had a lot of fun putting it together. When we were almost done, his mother got there to pick him up. He insisted that she stay until we finish and she agreed. After another 2-3 minutes or so we completed the puzzle and high-fived in excitement. However, his excitement did not end here. He started screaming and cheering and ran out of the cafeteria down the hall. We both went after him and after making a few turns in the hall found him plopped down in the middle of the hallway with both shoes kicked out. It took about five minutes for us to convince him to calm down and get his shoes back on to get ready to go. I was a little bit disappointed that after such a great day with him he acted out just in time for his mother to see but I'm sure she understands.
