Small, But Powerful

Emma, a small 4-year-old in my K/1 combo class, did one of the funniest things I've ever seen. I was working with a small group when I looked over at Emma's group and saw all five kids sitting perfectly still in their desks with everything cleaned up - and I mean EVERYTHING clean: every white board was spotless, every marker was capped, every eraser was perfectly lined up. I asked what was going on and the BIG first grader said, "Emma was tired and finished and she told us to clean up"... and THEY DID. She is FOUR!!!
