Chores are fun?
When our time together in K6 is over and the homework is all done, we stack up the chairs and put away the tables. It doesn’t take long, but it is a chore. Chores usually are something that we don’t look forward to, by design they are not supposed to be fun. Kids in particular are known for their aversion to chores. Kids love fun. They love to play. Chores are usually neither.
But in K6, we enjoy our chores. There are a few students who wait around for everyone else to finish their homework so they can help clean up. They eagerly help pick up trash in the rooms, collect pencils and supplies, and stack chairs and put away tables. The joyful helpers make our chores fun.
If only we could approach all of our obligations with the joy of these children.
