Little Man was the star student in his classroom this week so Little Sis and I got to have lunch with him on Friday. It just so happened that this was also the lunch where Star Awards were being randomly drawn for each of the Kindergarten and 1st Grade classrooms. Little Man had received lots of Star Award tickets over the past month and so he was POSITIVE that his name would be drawn this time. (I was on pins and needles thinking his name wouldn’t be drawn out of the bucket.)
Instead of creating lots of noise with clapping, the students are asked to put their hands in the air and “twinkle” their fingers to recognize each of the winners. You can see the anticipation in Little Man here as he gets up on his knees because Principal Howden has just announced that he’ll be calling names from his classroom.
