Teaching by the numbers...

120 (deliberately) broken pencils
50 times a day that someone tries to tattle
35 times a day that I ask, "What is your responsibility ___ (at morning meeting, at lunch, in line, during reading workshop)?"
12 classroom library books damaged beyond repair
2 seat sacks cut with scissors

5 nervous second graders who presented projects beautifully in front of the whole elementary school.

Some numbers count more than others.
