Out Of The Mouths Of Babes (Reposted from I’m Not Miss Beadle)

This was originally posted on my teaching blog I’m Not Miss Beadle.  I thought it might have a broader appeal.  Hope you enjoy!  🙂

imageWriting a blog is a privilege. It’s an outlet by which one can freely express oneself, explore

various topics, and pass along information to one’s followers. And as with any privilege there comes responsibility.

It is with that in mind that I share with you something I learned yesterday from one of my first graders. I was working with my intervention group at my reading table and we were making words in the -ack family. The last word we made was track. My little friend’s eyes lit up. That’s a moment for which all of us Instructional Warriors live.

Then she said this: “Oh, track! If you steal a cell phone, you have to take out the card or else they can track you.”

And so, dear readers, I leave you with this bit of wisdom as you approach the weekend. Don’t say I never gave you nothing.
