    After a lesson on physical/chemical changes:
    Student: "Oh, I get it!! When Humpty Dumpty fell off of the wall, that was a physical change, because he was still an egg, just a broken egg."
    (We hadn't even talked about eggs.)
    If you don't appreciate a child with significant disabilities making this connection, then you are just crazy!
    THIS is why I teach. Every now and then I need to be reminded.

    I agree. Teaching special ed is so hard at times but these kinds of things make it all worth while.

    What a lightbulb moment for you and this child. I sure do love the connections that students make!

    Wow, that's really great! I would consider it great even from a general ed student, frankly - it's hard to get kids to make connections at all levels sometimes.
