Nothing Halts A Lesson Like A Spot Of Rabies

| Learning | March 3, 2014

(I’m teaching a class of kindergarten students how to read with some old ‘Dick and Jane’ books. They are taking turns reading individual sentences.)

Student: “See… Spot. See… Spot run.”

Student #2: “Run… Spot, run.”

Bored Student: “Spot has rabies. RUN, JANE, RUN!”

(The students actually believed that’s what it said! I had to escort him to the office, and the principal was actually just as amused by that as I was!)
