Submitted by kindergarten teacher May Ryan
I taught kindergarten in a school with a central hallway. Often the teachers left their doors open so we played a game as we passed by. If the student could walk by and nobody in the classroom looked up at them, the student won. The game was different for each student walking by and I played too.
The students soon learned that any unusual body movement--like tiptoeing or a sneaky gait--would draw attention to them. We wanted doors to be open so we could play the game!
