The 3 Hs

The 3 Hs are part of every morning in room 18. As I greet kids at the door, they have a choice of whether they want to give me a...

Hug
High five
Handshake

Most choose the hug, but sometimes there's a handshake or high five in the mix. (And there are usually a few kids who aren't really touchy feely, which I completely understand, so of course I don't force anything upon them.)

I've been doing this for so long that I don't even remember where I found the idea. All I know is that I can't take credit. :)

  1. I learned the 3Hs from my master teacher in Stockton, CA in 1990. I've been doing it for 20 years! 😍

  3. I do breakfast duty since I don't have an actual classroom. I love to say good morning to each kid in our building. Your 3Hs is wonderful!
