Creating a word game became the mission of Janice’s third grade class. She wanted so much to impart some understanding of God’s giving of gifts to “all men” to them so she was working hard at drawing them all in.
Tommy was someone who enjoyed drawing and she wanted to encourage him to press deeper into the ability she recognized in him.
Alexandria liked to express herself through the written word as she tried to write about her home life, books, flowers anything just so long as she could express herself.
Bobby was a twin and he enjoyed being different than his twin though they were so much alike.
Cindy she liked being Bobby’s sister and wanted what they did to match.
Janice loved her small class and encouraged Mick and Troy as well to find what they could do to contribute to this word game. They tried to change the subject but she persisted.
Finally a decision was made. The class would take the chalk that Janice provided and each would create a picture or idea on the sidewalk. The judge would pick the best expression and build upon that.
The theme for the word game would be “thump”. What could they do? what would they do to come forth with the best idea? Each one wrote out the word in large capital letters: T H U M P.
As Janice looked at each student pondering over their word she noticed something unique. Each child used different colors to write out their word. But one used a different color for each letter.
She laughed with delight as her students brought forth their ideas and gave expression of them on the sidewalk with chalk.
