**My smallest class **of students was an afternoon young-fives class my first year of teaching. There were only five children in the class. What a perfect number of students! We could do so many fun and interesting explorations. In direct contrast, the last year I taught, I had a full-day kindergarten class with 29 children in it. To be sure, that’s a good number of five- and six-year-olds packed into a classroom. They were a quirky group of little ones, and I had a ball teaching them. But I do wish I could have given them more individual attention.

And that leads me to **Wednesday’s Question of the Day:**

**What grade do you teach, and how many children are in your classroom?**

I’m eager to hear everyone’s answers! If you comment on today’s blog, you will automatically be entered into our **“Thank You, Teachers!” drawing**. There will be **five prize winners!** (The winners will be announced next Monday.) You can enter every day this week by posting a comment on the daily blog.

All the best!
