In Paige's class, the teacher has given each child a card with his name. Each time the child misbehaves, a marker on the name card moves down the bottom of the card. After 4 times, the name card is "flipped." Paige was appalled the second day of school when a classmate flipped his card.
Tonight at bedtime, Paige remarked that she is very tired during the school day. She stated that it would be nice to miss recess and take a nap. I said that I didn't think the teacher would let her skip recess. Her response? "She will if I flip my card!"
