Song-ography: Uno

One is the loneliest number...
...unless you're playing with friends!

I was humming this song one day this week while my class had snack and choice time. Suddenly, I hear "UNO!" and looked up to see a few kids playing the game.

One can be such a lonely number, but when you're playing with friends the dynamic changes. I have a small class, some parents make a case that small classes limit friendship opportunities. But, I have a great class. They include each other, get each other, and are a great group. I wonder what it would be like if there were more of them with more friendship opportunities.

Sure. One can be a lonely number...but playing with friends - nothing beats that.

Uno is one of those games they've taken and "improved" in so many ways it nice to play the original version without the bells and whistles; just giggles and laughter. Enjoy your day!

We still play UNO! We love board and card games ... esp. during the long winter evenings! Nice shot!

Very creative. I think you will find that regardless the size of class or school, most of us (and kids) make "friends" with a limited group - they're simply exposed to more in the larger settings. Arguably, a small group makes for more intimate friendships.

Nice interpretation of the song! I've taught classes of 15 - 16 in the past and this year I'm up to 28. Small class size is the way to go! More isn't always better :)

That's a creative approach to this song! Made me laugh out loud! I've actually never played this game. I think I'm missing out!

Great choice for the song and I love your story behind it. It's wonderful that your class while small is making great friends with each other.
