Given word - ones
"Ones is a number!"
Given word - happy
"Happy is when you smile really big!"
Given word - rags
"That's what you use to wash your face!" (Sadly, I couldn't give any points for that because she didn't actually say the word "rags" in her sentence. Stupid test!!)
I was giving one of the little boys the part of the test where he had to answer questions about the phonemes (sounds) in the words. I asked, "What sound does insect start with?" He looked at the picture, thought deeply for a moment, and said, "Bzzzzzz" I almost lost it. How cute is that?
Thanks to my darling brother, who brought me coffee at about 7:00 tonight while I was working at the bar, I'm still wide awake, despite the fact that it's midnight. As much as I'd love to write about my own babies today, I know I should be trying to get to bed, especially because I have to be up in 6 hours. I'll be back!
