That wasn't right...

Our reading program has us sounding out words daily. The kids are really getting the hang of it. We're sounding out EVERYTHING we see. It's a primary teacher's dream, really.

Until you sound out h...u...m...p. I'm pretty sure in a normal primary classroom, it's not really a big deal. After all, a camel has a hump. A hump is a bump, right? Yeah, unfortunately I'm not in a "normal" classroom. Remember my kids? All emotionally disturbed and really "street smart". Sounding out hump isn't the best idea because in their worlds...

"Ooooh! Mrs. L, hump is what adults do!"

Oi vay.

The stories from your classroom make me so sad to have to send my kids to school one day!!! I am sure a lot of this goes on in my room too- mine are just a bit quieter! ;)
