On School #21 Mars Magic

Mars Magic is abundant in my classroom. My fifteen eight- and nine- year-olds love it. They say it improves their work. I’m all for that.

After I give a lesson on the board or the computer in English, Reading, or Math and before I send the children to their offices to work on the assignment, I can be sure that several children will raise their hands and beg for Mars Magic. How can I refuse?

I wait for everyone to be ready with paper, books, and pencils in hand then I wiggle my fingers over their work. Sometimes I scrunch up my eyes and make weird noises as I twitch my entire body dashing Mars Magic to every corner of the room. They laugh and then they work. Usually the results are better.
