The Quiet Game

My son's first grade homeroom has only twenty students--but a fair portion of the class can be challenging.  I hate to use gender bias, but there are seven girls and thriteen healthy, active boys. 

We had a surprise snowstorm and subsequent school cancellation on Thursday.  Friday, the last day of school before the two-week Christmas break, was undoubtly hectic as the teachers rushed to play catch-up on all of the projects they wanted to complete before all of the Christmas parties began the last hour of school.  Did I mention it was spirit day (which means out of regular uniforms AND a serbert treat).  Right after lunch, my son's class has physical education.
While sitting around the dinner table, we discuss our favorite part of the day.  Our youngest chimed in that the Christmas party was the best but gym class was second.  "Oh, but we did have to play the quiet game FOUR TIMES during gym."  I can only imagine!  That poor gym teacher may still be recovering!
