One of my kids had a . . . behavioral escalation today. On the playground. Hello, whole new ballgame. Hello 40 minutes of crisis mode. But, anyway. Playground.
I run to catch the kid who is bent on (create your own danger to self and others scenario here.) I RUN.
While I am doing my crisis thing (insert CPI here,) another student (of mine) comes up to me. Here's how that went:
kid: "Wow, Miss Eye! You ran FAST!"
me: "Buddy, if you can go find something else to do right now, I'll show you a train picture on my phone after lunch."
kid: "Oh! Bye!"
