Friday mailbox

This letter and picture made my teeth ache -- it's so sweet! I was simply floored by it, as well, as this student has been an extremely reluctant writer throughout the year. I can't imagine how long this must have taken him and how much effort it took to write this message. I love this letter more for his effort and success with writing than for it's adorable message. :)

"I love you, Mrs. A. Forever."

Learning about writing with voice

"Can you sing the ABCs? I can. It's kind of hard, but I can still do it. It is fun. You should try it."

A new baby

Me: "Kinders, our friend has an exciting announcement..." 
Student 1: "I have a new baby brother!" 
Me: "Does anybody have a question about the new baby?"
 Student 2: "Does he like applesauce?"

Little smarties

Student 1 (holding up the inside cover of one of my books): "Hey, Mrs. Anderson, we found a date in this book and we're trying to figure out when it was. It says 7-2-10."

Student 2: "Yeah, we think it says July 2, 2010. Are we right?"

I am raising little geniuses, people -- little geniuses!!!
