My boy has a new teacher in school who is diligently trying to get to know all of her new students. She seems kind of sweet and Devin likes her a lot – so far so good. Being that she is new to the school my wife told our son that if he gets a chance to read for the new teacher he should. She suggested this because our son mostly reads at home and recently admitted that he has never read aloud in class. He took his mother’s suggestion and read to his teacher last week. The teacher was so blown away by his ability to get through even the most complicated kindergarten text without complication or stutter that she made him teacher for the day last Wednesday. As teacher he got to read three books to the class and paddle the bad kids (OK I made up the second part of that sentence). He was so proud of himself, but not as proud as we were.
Woohoo! That’s awesome.
That is pretty doggone cool.
