Kindness: SOLSC2013#12

So many at my school are fighting off colds. Sneezing. Sniffling. Grabbing tissues. Coughing.

I’ve been one of them. I thought I was going to lose my voice during testing week! After I made it through the week and kept my voice, I thought I’d won the battle.

This afternoon I was with a fifth grade class. We had just done a writing mini-lesson, and everyone was writing. It was quiet-  unusual for this particular class full of kids who love to talk. Then it started. A tickle in my throat. A little cough. A dry feeling in my throat. Another cough. This kept repeating.

It was time for me to move on to my next group. As I was leaving, I heard my name spoken softly. And one of the boys held out his hand with a cough drop.

    Wow is right! What a perceptive boy. I do hope you just had a tickle and it does not develop into anything else. Jackie
