The dining room table begins to shake.
Someone keeps re-adjusting themselves in their seat.
Then it’s the finger-tapping.
My coffee, previously still, begins to sway in its cup.
Shortly after the table movement, the accusations begin, “Who took my eraser?”
The bickering follows.
And I grab my coffee before it spills and say, “Everybody UP! Time to MOVE!”
A morning of lessons needs to be broken up with time to move their bodies.
