 I have each students pretend they got hurt and need
 a band-aid. Children love band-aids. I ask the first one
 where they are hurt. If he says his finger, I put the band-
 aid on his finger. Then I ask the second one where they
 are hurt. No matter what that child says, I put the band-
 aid on their finger exactly like the first child. I keep doing
 that through the whole class. No matter where they say
 their pretend injury is, Ido the same thing I did with the
 first one.
 After they all have band-aids in the same spot, I ask
 if that actually helped any of them other than the first
 child. I say, "Well, I helped all of you the same! You
 all have one band-aid!" And they'll try to get me to
 understand that they were hurt somewhere else. I act
 like l'm just now understanding it. Then I explain, "There
 might be moments this year where some of you get
 different things because you need them differently, just
 like you needed a band-aid in a different spot."
 If at any time any of my students ask why one student
 has a different assignment, or gets taken out of the
 class for a subject, or gets another teacher to come
 in and help them throughout the year, I remind my
 students of the band-aids they got at the start of the
 school year and they stop complaining. That's why eight
