Student Quotes– Best: Me- “Why is it important to keep your eyes on the words, when your partner is reading?”
Adorable, 3rd Grade, ELL(English Language Learner) student- “It is important that you keep your eyes on the words so you can be focused and you are not subtracted when you read.”
Me- “Yes! Great thinking! Good readers stay focused and make sure that they are not DIS-TRACT-ED when they read!”
Adorable, 3rd Grade, ELL(English Language Learner) Student- “Lots of kids, back in Ms. M’s class, are subtracted when they read.”
Worst: Me-(Picking up students from their classroom, to bring down to the reading lab for intervention. The other reading specialist is with me, collecting her students too.)
Bright, 3rd Grade Student- “D., L., and A. aren’t here today.”
Me- “Oh no! We are missing a lot of our reading friends today.”
Bright, 3rd Grade Student- “Ya, but it is because they all have lice!”
Event– Best: Celebrating my daughter’s 22nd birthday!
Worst: Towing Tessa’s car from her rental to our place, so we can have our trusted mechanic put a new starter in it:/
Outing– Best: Jason and I took my Dad to the Phoenix Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks hockey game. It was the most exciting game I have ever seen live!
Worst: Going to Target to fill 3 prescriptions for Jason’s bronchial infection and they don’t have the medicine in stock.
Best Example of turning Lemons into Lemonade: It was going to take over an hour for the tow truck to get to Tessa’s car and we had to be there to meet him. Her rental is less than a mile from REI. We spent a wonderful hour looking at our favorite store! Jason even found a perfect phone holder for his new bike!
