I am celebrating the hugs from Isabella, the smiles from Chris, and the anticipation from Felicity.
I am celebrating the light-bulb igniting in Keegan, the triumph in Howie, and the trust in Jade.
I am celebrating the knowledge gained in Aiden, the horse-telling stories from Ariah, and the spur of the moment hug from Xander.
One moment this past week made my day. I wrote his comment down immediately. George knew he made me feel special that day and I appreciated it.
We were working on learning the difference the silent e makes in words, changing from a short vowel sound in a CVC word to a long vowel sound in a CVCe word. After seeing the difference between words, the kids began to write the words: cap to cape; hop to hope; Sam to same. They were hearing the 3 sounds but kept forgetting the silent e. All of a sudden, George’s eyes lit up. “I got it!” and he wrote the word fine instead of fin.
I smiled and replied,”How did you get so smart?”
Pointing at me smiling, George said, “Because I have a such a great teacher!”
