A couple of weeks ago I had to be out a lot due to a training that I only had for 1st grade and not K. Workshops and trainings are usually somewhat boring but the one thing I love about them is hearing other peoples stories. One of the ladies shared a story that I thought was just too cute!
One of the ladies, a K teacher from Shelby Co., said she was doing her beginning of the year assessments and ask this certain child to tell her what the letter A said. She said the child looked at the letter and then looked at her kind of funny and stood up beside her chair, holding her hands down to form an 'A' she said in a high pitched voice "hello how are you today?" The teacher just stopped the assessment right there! But think about it...you are asking kids that some dont know what a letter is to tell you what it "says." haha! It is just amazing what goes on in their little heads!!
