Faith Like a Child

We were working on a poetry unit the last two weeks of school.  Students had to write a sensory poem using figurative language.  During our guided writing, we wrote a sensory poem on soccer.  Soccer tastes like grass, smells like sweat, sounds like crowds cheering, etc.  We were debating how to complete the last line, "Soccer makes me feel_________."  One student completed the sentence by saying, "Happy when I win."  Another student said, "Angry when the ref gives a player a card."  Another said, "Disappointed if you lose."  One of my ESL students ended the conversation by simply stating, "No.  You win.  You lose.  Time out.  You always happy if you glorify God.  You praise God when you play.  You happy."
