Dorothy McKnight asked Jones fourth-graders:
"Do you have any bad habits?
What are you doing about them?"
“I have a bad habit of always keeping my things in one place and they keep piling up and up. My mom keeps telling me to clean it up.”
“Pencil chewing and breaking my pencils. I do it when I’m angry or sometimes when I’m just bored, or I can’t think of an answer.”
“My worst habit is when I do baseball and I’m the pitcher. I always hop when I pitch and it makes it an illegal pitch. I’m trying to control it.”
“I always lose my pencils and have to get them from the cupboard. I get so rushed after school and leave them on my desk and the custodian puts them in the wrong desk.”
“Not tying my shoelaces and then tripping on them. I get deep in thought about wanting a cat but my dad says I can’t have one until I move out.”
“Learning how to pitch in baseball. I should leave my glove up to help me balance but I keep leaving it down. I’m trying to change that.”
