popcorn helps us read

Standard

I find that my attitude really impacts the kiddos that I teach, I see the students just under the money mark…called an ‘interventionist’ at my job now. I deal in the parameters of bad moods from lack of  nutrition to overabundance of electronics.  Everyone in my groups has a televison in their bedroom, despite their economic situation.  Well, encouraging the love of reading, some days, seems frustrating and then I started to remember something about me as a reader.  I loved to curl up in a big chair, my book and a snack when I was young, I still do!  “Yikes,” nutritionists complain, “That’s a recipe for an overweight 50 something…someday.” Well, it’s not someday for my kiddos.  If popcorn helps them focus, If popcorn makes them cheerful, if popcorn helps them to get down and cozy with books- it’s happening every day.
