It is a cold, snowy day here and I don’t have kids in the office. Its a perfect day to share some of the funny things I”ve been told.
B: My dad went hunting. He got a big deer.
Me: Did you see it?
B: Yes, and it came with ketchup already on it.
J. was a little girl who had a /t/ for /k/ substitution. She also really loved my cats. Here is a snippet of how she expressed that:
Miss Lisa, I just love your tiddies. I love to pet them and hold them. Your tiddies are so soft. I wish I had your tiddies.
I had some pretty major surgery on my head. My head had to be shaved and I wore scarves for a while to cover up the scarring until my hair grew back in. I warned all of my parents to talk to their children, telling them I was ok, but that I might look a little different. M. feared the worse I think. When he saw me for the first time he said:
Lisa, you don’t look like a zombie alien at all. You just look old fashioned.
I was working with C. on categories. We were playing “tell me three things about…..”.
Me: C., tell me three things about a baby.
C: (Pulls up his shirt and points to his belly button). Here!
Me: What do you mean, I don’t understand.
C: Babies come from your digestion!
Me: Good job C. You are such a smart cookie!
A classic example of auditory processing deficits. I mentioned to a student that I felt a draft. When he left, he said to the next child who was waiting, “be careful, there is a giraffe in there. I didn’t see it, but Miss Lisa felt it.”
Whether you are in a snow place or a warm place, enjoy today. Make the most of your time with your kids. Learn new words and laugh at the funny things.
