Circle the Elephants

At my school on the first Friday of each month we have a period called “Focus Friday”.

During Focus Friday the students go to the activity they signed up for the week before. Some of the activities are things like watercolor painting, logic puzzles, and origami. My teacher, Ms. Devon, calls it Circle the Elephants because, in olden times, when the traveling circus came to town, they’d find a place to perform and “circle the elephants” and all the townspeople would do something different for a change.

The reason I like Focus Friday is because you get to take some time out of your usual schedule and do something different, too. I like anything that is out of the ordinary!
