A Song With Pounding Beats

| Learning | September 30, 2013

(I’m working as a teacher’s assistant in a ‘get ready for second grade’ class. All the kids are seven or eight. Each day we do a math lesson and a writing lesson. Today we are trying to teach the kids about abbreviations.)

Teacher: “Okay, kids who can tell me what ‘Mr.’ stands for?”

Student #1: “Mister.”

Teacher: “Good. How about ‘Ave?'”

Student #2: “Avenue.”

Teacher: “Boy you kids are smart. Okay this is a hard one. Does anyone remember ‘lbs?'”

(The kids look around confused and flip through their work books for the answer. One little boy raises his hand.)

Student #3: “Lullabies?”
