I subbed for an elementary gym teacher today.
My first graders today were given a "free play day." What this means is that I pulled a bunch of stuff out of the equipment room, and let them go crazy. It didn't take too long before I got bored, so I picked up a rubber kickball, and started bouncing it around as I walked. At some point, a kid accidentally threw a ball at me. I saw it coming, and made a big show out of bouncing it back to him off the ball in my hand. He was amazed by this, so I let him do it again. This was a mistake, it took only a couple seconds before half the class was playing, "let's throw things at Mr. C."
