Granted, she is off course in terms of getting the answer correct, but it shows me: -Her imagination -She is thinking! and most importantly -HOW MUCH SHE WILL LEARN IN FIRST GRADE... and I get to lead and bear witness to her growth... it's an exciting thought! I was testing a student 1 on 1 with a level A book. She can barely read at level A... and the page said "We love to read." I asked her why the author wrote love very dark. She said "Because his pencil broke." I ask her to tell me more. "Yeah, his pencil broke and so he had to use a black marker." I just melted on the spot, lol. It's one of those student answers you will remember for the rest of your life, and a funny little story you're going to share for the next 20 years. The exciting thing is thinking about how much she will grow from August 2013 to May 2014! Anyone else have an "unforgettable student comment" story that has never left you? Share it here!
