So I spelled "pancake" wrong in the title of my last post. It really was a typo. I promise I know how to spell.
And now, so I don't waste a whole post on defending my spelling errors, a quick snippet of a conversation had in class today...
One of my reading groups is reading a book called Eat Your Vegetables and Drink Your Milk. It's (surprisingly) about eating healthy and taking care of your body.
After reading a few pages, one of the girls shares with the whole group about the time she ate too much turkey at Thanksgiving and she had a horrible stomach ache. This would have been a good time for me to tell them about how over eating is bad for us, but she went on to tell us that she spent the whole night "on the toilet". Before I could stop her, she graphically told us about this night and the odors it left behind.
Ten year olds have no shame.
