t is for talking stick

one of the best things for one of our classes is the revival of the talking stick.  we simply pass it around the circle and children can say something or pass it on.

without prompting, the talking stick is used as a microphone.  most recently, each child had a piece of playdoh to play with while listening (there are some LONG stories) and when they got the stick, the playdoh became the round top of the microphone.

my favorite is when we teachers take a turn and suddenly the most mundane facts are honored.
