This week, because of Thanksgiving, we've been having the students write down who or what they're thankful for. Today, during a class of eight-year-olds, Sophia and I introduced the short writing assignment by saying, "You can be thankful for anyone, your mother or your father, your friends, your teachers." All like, hint, hint, you know.
One student raised her hand and asked, "How do you spell Sharon and Erika?" the names of the two teachers she had before us.
