I love recording the funny things that my students say over the course of the day and today was no different. I think that the best comment came from a second grader during the guided reading portion of the lesson. We had already completed the word study and fluency components and were ready to begin a new book. When I said, “We have a new book to read,” M looked at me and said, “Are you serious?” While the words were funny, it was M’s tone of voice that was so priceless. Even though he’s worked with me for a year now, he honestly seemed surprised that we had yet another book to read. I had to smother a grin and continue on with the lesson.
