While reading Because of Winn Dixie today
Student 1: “Why do they keep putting ‘ain’t’ in this book? Don’t they know it’s not a word?”
Student 2: “They must not know English!”
Yesterday, during Independent Reading
Visitor from a consulting company to a student: “How is your reading going?”
Student: “Great. If I could just get my comprehension better, I could move up a level.”
Sometimes, I don’t know if they’re hearing me. These two days have proven me otherwise. It reminds me why I chose this profession.
