    addressing their fears
    By E

    Our school was on heightened security yesterday (we're thousands of miles away)and so my first graders were very aware that something scary was happening. (We had to keep our classroom doors locked, no outside recess, etc. until we were sure of the scope of the tragedy) I told them a little about the terrible events that were happening in New York City and Washington DC. I assured them that those cities are very far away and that the everyone was doing everything they could to help the people there. I assured tham that it was my job and the principal's job to see that they were as safe as possible in our school and that their parents would do everything possible to see that they were safe at home. We'll need to talk about it agin today as I'm sure it will come up this morning. Besides, who knows what today may bring. What a world we live in...
