Today was a red letter day in my Wrinkles class! Cristian started reading the English that I was writing for him. I mean REALLY reading and understanding what he was reading. WOW! What a moment! He and I were grinning like cheshire cats because the light bulbs were coming on everywhere! I love working with these kids. They are so excited about Super Thinker visiting their weblogs – and yes, they are sure Super Thinker is a teacher! Why are we such dead give aways? We aren’t wearing signs so what gives? Don’t answer…..
I really like the Idioms Are Fun site that I have created. It is simple. Yet, the kids are getting so much out of it. I am going to start trying to think of more ideas like that. I think we could do a better job of getting other educators to start if we can come up with simple ideas that are effective.
Yep, it was a red letter day in Georgia! The only down side is I have to wait until next year to see them again!
