Facebook friends of mine have seen these already, but they're too funny not to share here as well.
Last week, I was seeing a little girl for the first time after a very long winter break. I gave her a bunch of words that I expected to be difficult (we were using my iPad) and she was saying everything beautifully. I asked her if she had been practicing at home over break, because she was doing such a great job.
She got all excited, and told me, "I've been working, and working, and I don't need you at all anymore!" Then, after a pause to think about that, she added, "I still need your iPad, though."
This week, I was working with the same student and she was showing me a wall in her classroom with Martin Luther King, Jr. activities. Her teacher had hung up photos of each student, and of them was holding a sign that said, "I have a dream." When she showed me her picture, so proud, I said, "You have a dream? What's your dream?"
"I don't have a dream."
(Maybe I need to introduce her to Paige!)
