I was counting out for another activity…

“One, Two, One, Two, One…”  When behind me came some noise.

“Boom – ch…ah boom-boom-ch”

The kids decided I needed a beat boxing accompaniment to go along with my rhythmic counting so I grooved on down the line and we clapped when it was over.   If I could rap I would have.  While some people might have been annoying or thought it was being distracting, I loved it.  These kids who I had met no more than 45 minutes before were comfortable enough and enjoying my class so much already that they were able to do something like that.

I loved it… and this is why I’m going back to school.
