Too funny today! I gave a group of students a book called "Halloween" during guided reading yesterday to read for homework. One of my students (a wicked Hispanic cutie) had trouble saying the word "pumpkin". She said what some kids do; "PUN-kin". I had the group look carefully at the word and repeat it after me. She was laughing while trying to do it because it felt funny to her. I explained that she wasn't reading the whole word or saying all of the sounds in it. She got it then. :) She came up to me this morning and said, "I practiced last night, maestra! I can say PUMP-kin now!" She was very proud of herself and I am proud of her determination to say it correctly, too!
Now on to REALLY important things...SHOES! I bought a new pair of shoes today at Woldruff's Footware. They are sexy Dansko clogs. I got the inspiration from one of my fellow teachers who just bought them the other day. I left school to go get them and hers was the first room I visited when I got back to tell her that I copied her. They are hott! (Yes, I meant to write 2 "t's".) Here is a photo for your viewing pleasure.
NOTE: I am thinking that I did my citing correctly. If I did not, please leave me a KIND message and let me know what I should have done differently. Thanks!
