From the Mouths of Babes

Sunday, September 12, 2010

I teach first grade.

During Friday's spelling test, as I prepared to say the next word on the list, I said, "This word is a hard one."
One little boy replied, "It's not that hard once you get to know it."

Oh, my gosh. That blew me away. Isn't that true with everything? Losing weight, getting healthy, making better choices? Once we get to "know it" it all becomes much easier. It's not so hard.

    oh, you lucky, lucky woman...teaching first graders...where you get to actually SEE some of the results of your teaching and you help them develop their natural learning/curiosity into habits...

once i learn it, it may be easy, but i STILL need to put it into practice!!! emoticon
