Oh The Things They Will Say.....Double Dipping
I was happy to witness my Kinders carrying out the strategies I taught them all through the week. I saw them cough into their sleeves. Ask for tissues politely and discreetly. Wash their hands with expert agililty. And then R. really applied his newfound knowledge. While making a Christmas Bear puppet he summoned my attention and anxiously announced, "Mrs. Pearce! B. is double dipping...in the glue!" You see my Kinders share little plastic pots of glue on their table and use their pointer fingers to dip and stick. In this case I guess B. was taking a dip, stick, dip.
This proved to be a sticky teaching moment for me. I pondered....Is double dipping in the glue pot a germ spreader, too?
