Yay for green! It's so amazing when it starts to come in.
So, can I brag a bit? One of my students is learning so fast it is literally blowing me away. One of her sounds is 'sh' and two weeks ago she could say 'sh' correctly 10% of the time. Last week she did it correctly 78% of the time. No kidding - I don't know HOW she is learning this fast but it's amazing! She's soaking everything up like a little sponge.
I'm loving having a chance to form attachments with "my" kids again. That was the big thing I missed out on while I was out of the classroom. Actually last week I was working with one of my little guys and it was center time in the classroom. I usually let him pick the activity, then follow along and add words to what he is doing. He wanted to play in the kitchen area and two other little boys told him he couldn't play there. Man, I was angry! The wouldn't let "my" kid play with them!
I have to say ... I feel for all you moms. He isn't even my kid and I was going into protective mode over those mean boys.
